Valerie Thomas: Why she kicks ass
- She is a scientist and inventor, who invented the illusion transmitter for which she received a patent in 1980. (This is an invention that NASA continues to use to this day.)
- She went to an all-girls school where she did not receive any training in the sciences. Implicit stereotypes contributed to this, as the girls school did not teach the students about math or science, so she had to educate herself about those subjects. She later attended Morgan State University, and was one of two women in majoring in physics.
- She worked at NASA, first as a data analyst and then moving on to oversee the creation of the Landsat program, then as project manager for the Space Physics Analysis Network and was associate chief for NASA’s Space Science Data Operations Office. She also participated in projects related to Halley’s Comet, ozone research, and the Voyager spacecraft.
- She retired in August 1995 as Space Science Data Operations Officer, serving as manager of the NASA Automated Systems Incident Response Capability and serving as chair of the SSDOO Education Committee.
- She is currently an associate at the UMBC Center for Multicore Hybrid Productivity Research, and also serves as a mentor for youth through the Science Mathematics Aerospace Research and Technology and National Technical Association.

Brina Lee spends a lot more time on Instagram than most people. That’s because she is Instagram’s first female engineer! She took a web coding class in high school and hasn’t stopped since. Brina credits Sheryl Sandberg and Jocelyn Goldfein, one of the highest engineering directors at Facebook, with helping to change how female engineers are viewed at the company. “A lot of people think that coding is boring, but you have to understand the impact that you’re having by submitting one or two lines of code. Just submitting one extra line of code into the Facebook repository impacts a billion people. Same thing with Instagram!” she explains in an interview with ELLE magazine.
Go look at what Google did, it’s international women’s day today and their logo is v rad and so is the video.

You are made of waves and honey

You are a goddess,
I hope you haven’t forgotten.
