In it\, Acevedo retraces her journey as a young girl in an underprivileged New Mexico neighborhood to her present triumph as an accomplished scientist and national leader. \nWhere Sylvia was growing up\, many girls were not graduating from high school\, let alone going to college from her community. Sylvia’s story of overcoming obstacles with confidence\, hard work\, and education is an inspirational tale. She navigated shifting cultural expectations at school and at home\, forging her own trail to become one of the first Latinx to graduate with a master’s in engineering from Stanford University and going on to become a rocket scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. \nA gifted public speaker and an incredible role model\, Acevedo is an advocate for empowering children to achieve their dreams\, especially encouraging an interest in STEM education. In addition to being a rocket scientist at NASA\, she has worn many hats—an engineer at IBM\, an award-winning entrepreneur\, businesswoman\, commissioner on the White House Initiative for Education Excellence for Hispanics\, and currently\, CEO of the Girl Scouts of the USA. \n*Please note that the book signing will be conducted on a first-come\, first-served basis. Upon entering the theater\, people wishing to have books signed will be given a number\, and the book signing will take place in numerical order after the on-stage presentation. \nTo learn more about Sylvia Acevedo\, click here. \n URL: LOCATION:Meyerland Performing and Visual Arts Middle School\, 10410 Manhattan Drive\, Houston\, TX\, 77096\, United States CATEGORIES:Cool Brains!
