Jere Williams is a young black woman that is currently working on a special research project for NASA to develop long-lasting batteries for space exploration.
The 20-year-old honor student Jere, who is a junior student at the Xavier University in the USA, works as a researcher for the program.
Jere explains: “Xavier received a $5 million (N1,5 billion) grant to fund a research project that would a build a solid state battery using chemical elements to complete the mission to Mars in 2021.”
She added: “My ultimate goals are to become lawyer for a chemical plant or chemical engineering firm, and then start my own cosmetic line for people with eczema, since I have eczema.”
To other young people her advice is: “Never allow your situation to determine your destination. No matter how tough times get, never allow it to determine your future. No one said it would be easy, but it is up to you to keep striving.”
