22-Year-Old Tierra Guinn with 5.0 G.P.A. Lands Job As Nasa Engineer!
Today’s “Good News of the Day” comes courtesy of a young woman by the name of Tierra Guinn who is the epitome of Black Girl Magic! Check out her inspirational story below….
Guinn, whose career trajectory seems like a sequel to the much-acclaimed “Hidden Figures” movie, has been aspiring to become an aerospace engineer since she was a child.
Her mom, who noticed her daughter’s skills from a young age, made sure to Guinn stayed sharp by putting her intelligence to use…at the supermarket.
“When [my mom and I] would go to the grocery store, she would get me to clip coupons [and] put it in my coupon organizer,” Guinn told WBRC News. “By the time we got to the register, I’d have to calculate the exact total, including tax. And I did that since I was six years old.”
“One day I saw a plane fly by and I just had this realization, ‘huh, I can design planes. I’m going to be an aerospace engineer,”’ Guinn said.
She chose all of her middle school classes accordingly and commuted an hour to go to the high school that would best prepare her for the future.
Now, Guinn will soon be graduating from MIT with a 5.0 and is clearly on a path to success. She said she’d advise young girls looking to follow in her footsteps to expect obstacles throughout their journey.
“You have to look forward to your dream and you can’t let anybody get in the way of it,” she said. “No matter how tough it may be, no matter how many tears you might cry, you have to keep pushing. And you have to understand that nothing comes easy. Keeping your eyes on the prize, you can succeed.” – via huffpost
Now this is the type of story we love to hear! Black women are doing the damn thing, aren’t they? Congratulations to Tierra Guinn on her amazing achievement and we wish her nothing but the best!
