How This Aerospace Engineer is Breaking Down Barriers

Tiera Fletcher inspires us to dream of limitless possibilities and new frontiers.

Aerospace engineer Tiera Fletcher grew up in a small town outside of Atlanta, Georgia with limited views on life’s possibilities. To see limitless opportunities, she looked to the influencers in her life – her parents, teachers, and African American women in history.

The dream seemed further away as I became the ‘only one’ in many classrooms… the only African American female. My mentors changed my perspective and pulled my dream closer to my view.

Tiera’s story encourages us to break down barriers and create new frontiers so that young girls everywhere can see themselves in the history books of tomorrow.
