  • No matter what type of circumstances that you have been raised in or have

  • experienced you always have the ability to find a way out and create success for

  • yourself and I had to do that in my own life. I'd see all the college students go

  • towards the campus and I thought to myselfWhere are they going? What are they doing?

  • Why do they look different than the rest of people there in the group?”

  • That always kept in the back of my head. Our mother said, “Whatever you do,

  • in order to change your circumstance youre going to have to get an education.”

  • I kept that in the back of my head. No matter what I had to educate myself.

  • I had to get a degree. So people that I saw going to the school down

  • the street, that’s something I could do. I had that vision. I would go to

  • this school that was in a predominantly well-off area and everyone

  • had books and paper and really nice shoes. I remember looking at this thinking,

  • Oh, I don’t have any of that.” Every time I could come back into my

  • neighborhood I would see the graffiti, and I’d see the trash. I thought

  • to myself, “What makes a difference? Why are there people here in this situation,

  • versus here in this situation?” Every single day I would come back and it came

  • down to this, it was the thinking. How we think, how we

  • look at situations, whether or not we see ourselves doing well and being

  • successful, or versus if we see ourselves as a not successful person in an

  • environment. Our thinking defines our life. When we can take hold of our

  • thought and see it for what it is, and change it, and transform it, and change it

  • to convert it into an energy that unleashes a brainpower that allows us to

  • change a situation, that my friend is how we change our lives, and that’s how we

  • change everyone else’s life. What happened was I was failing algebra. I failed algebra,

  • I failed geometry, I failed calculus and chemistry. There was this

  • calculus teacher that said, “All right, I’m going to offer calculus tutoring for

  • anyone who’s willing to come to the campus during the winter break.” I

  • thought everyone’s going to show up. There was only myself. I thought to

  • myself, “This is such a blessing.” I sat there and I picked his brain. I'm like

  • How do I look and what does an integral mean? What does the tangent mean? What does

  • the instantaneous rate mean?” These are all words for derivatives in

  • calculus, and I got to just sit down with him. That was the first time ever

  • that I realized I was smart. When I sat with him it was amazing because I

  • realized what was stopping me was my own fear. It wasn’t anything with

  • my educational aspect. It was me thinking I couldn't do well in mathematics and

  • when I learned to remove that fear and “I’m going to do this no matter what’s

  • going to happen. I may fail it. I may not fail it. I’m going to do well at this and

  • I’m going to just see where it goes. I’m going to put my all into it and find

  • out.” And I put my all into it and I failed.

  • But something inside of me shifted. I realized failing wasn’t that bad.

  • If I can spend a little bit more time at it I can actually

  • do really well with this. That was a shift in thinking. I’m like, “Alright, I’m

  • just going to spend some more time in it and I’m going to actually get this.”

  • When I overcome my own fear it was when I was working with someone else and

  • recognizing that person next to me was the exact mirror of myself and if

  • I could help that person right next to me,

  • I was helping myself at the same time. It became this teamwork. Every single

  • person on the campus needed mathematics and so I got a chance to know everybody on

  • campus and became one of the most popular people because everyone needed

  • mathematics and that confidence that was built from taking something that I

  • failed at before and shifting my thinking about it and embracing it to

  • actually create a new reality for myself, that’s what empowered me. That’s what

  • allowed me to graduate top of my class, which later opened up

  • the door to launch rockets.

  • Through a series of events I learned the power that we have in our brain. When

  • I overcame so many challenges when I was launching rockets of being a woman, and

  • being a person of color in a predominant area that was different

  • than myself, I had to think differently. I had to think, “Alright, I’m

  • going to stand out. Everything that I do is going to have to be twice as good. That’s

  • just the nature of it.” I had to change the way in which I was thinking

  • in order to do that. How am I going to be such a contributing force to this

  • environment that whenever I leave I've made a difference? When I realized

  • that, and then when I coupled that with the aspect of mathematics, where the same

  • type of math that we used to launch to Mars it’s the same type of math that we use

  • to literally reshape our own brain, I realized the power of our thoughts. When

  • we are aware of where we are, what were dealing, and more importantly the decision

  • that we have in front of us, the choice in our thought in a situation whatever

  • decision that we make in that full awareness, that decision in itself is a

  • fractal moment in chaos that literally changes the brain at that very moment to

  • restructure it inside of your head so you can unleash your power. When you look

  • at how are my thoughts going to align with where I want to go and you decide

  • that moment in time where you decide this is a thought that’s going to get me to

  • being a rocket scientist. This is a thought

  • that’s going to get me to be a doctor. This is a thought to get me to be a host of my

  • own show. Whatever it takes, I’m going to have all the type of thoughts that’s

  • going to get me closer to where I want to go in the future. When we realize that

  • we have a choice in how we think about things, where we have a choice, are we

  • going to be scared about something, or are we going to go for it no matter what’s

  • going to happen, that is when we unleash this power to here. When you are expected

  • to succeed by your mentors or parents or teachers, when there is an expectation on

  • your life to do well, at an early age you adopt it, you address

  • it, you adhere to it, you create it. But if youre never given that opportunity

  • to know what you are capable of doing, if you are never given that word, that encouragement

  • that says, “You know what, you can be good at mathematics even though you failed

  • algebra and geometry and calculus and chemistry,” which I did.

  • You can actually do well in mathematics.” If there is not someone showing you your worth

  • when you can’t see it, youll forever be looking in the mirror thinking that youre

  • not worth what you are. When you see exactly what you don't

  • want, if you can take the exact opposite of that, that’s how you find out what you do

  • For example, when we launch rockets we knew, okay, we didn’t want there to be an explosion

  • out the jacket, which is was like the side of the rocket.

  • We wanted the explosion to go down. So we thought, “Okay, what is

  • the worst case scenario.” And the worst case scenario is, “Okay, there will be flames

  • blowing out where we don’t want it to go.” So were like, “How could we prevent that?

  • How can we focus on where we do want it to go? Where’s the ideal part for it to go?”

  • The ideal part is for all the flames to go down the tubes and go through and create a

  • plume. What we had to do in that aspect is literately

  • envision exactly what we didn’t want, and figure out the chain of events that

  • could possibly get us there to what we don't want and then go backwards.

  • The beauty about working in rocket science is that I had the ability to

  • observe genius brains and and I realized that any of us can gain a genius brain

  • no matter what age you are at. It doesn’t matter. Forget what anyone’s ever told you.

  • You can gain a smart brain at any age, at any age. Every decision that you make

  • reshapes your brain. The more powerful you are in making decisions after

  • decision after decision, the more powerful your brain becomes. Does that make

  • you really careful about what decisions you make? Like, are you super aware when

  • you're making decisions? I’ve learned to become aware to see, “Alright, this is

  • where I want to go. How is this decision going to help me get there?” It’s always

  • keeping that in the back of the head like this is where I’m going to go.

  • I made the decision very early in life that no matter where I was I was going to change it.

  • I was going change it so I would leave my mark to be able to help in a very powerful

  • way so people after I leave would be able to make their own

  • mark and build it in a way in which was going to be very powerful for their

  • life.

  • If youre a person in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, in other words STEM,

  • Go into it, do it. There is such a overwhelming need for you, because you have the

  • ability to see the big picture. You have the ability not only to do the

  • mathematics, but you have the ability to see the big picture and use your

  • communication skills in order for people to see how important concepts are. So

  • that is the gift that you bring if you have the opportunity to go into that, do

  • it.

No matter what type of circumstances that you have been raised in or have
