My friend Ndoni Mcunu who’s a world renowned scientist herself recommended me for this insert with CNN. She captured this particular image and sent it to me after the episode aired.
She has inspired me, advanced my thinking and uplifted so many lives for black women in STEM. https://t.co/zjvbyLUlp2
