Ellen Ochoa

Ellen Ochoa is known as the first Hispanic female astronaut, and growing up, she wasn’t always encouraged to aim high. “Usually, girls weren’t encouraged to go to college and major in math and science,” she said. “My high school calculus teacher, Ms. Paz Jensen, made math appealing and motivated me to continue studying it in college.”
