The Admirable American for this week is an African-American, female, chemical engineer, medical doctor, and astronaut. In 1992, Mae Jemison returned from space as the first African-American, female, astronaut. Before and after NASA, Jemison worked in universities as a teacher and researcher doing scientific studies in Cuba, Kenya, Sierra-Leone, Liberia, and Thailand. A truly global citizen, Jemison speaks Japanese, Russian, and Swahili, and served in the Peace Corps. She holds many honors, but her favorite first was acting in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
