"Honoring girls by providing access to a quality education is honoring the humanity within each of us" ~ Dr. Camille Wardrop Alleyne
Dr. Alleyne is a rocket engineer, space scientist, internationally-acclaimed speaker, writer and global STEM ambassador who founded the Brightest Stars Foundation in 2007 when she realized there were no young girls of color in the space science and engineering pipeline. She felt the Foundation would be an effective vehicle in which to change this narrative and influence girls to pursue STEM careers. She has traveled around the world empowering and inspiring youth but specifically young women.
Known as one of NASA Modern Figures inspired by the story "Hidden Figures", Dr. Alleyne holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Howard University, a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Florida A&M University, a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from University of Maryland, College Park and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Houston.
