Our house name is Pocock. Maggie Pocock is a space scientist. She is very inspirational because she never gave up on her dream. When she was a child she wanted to be a space scientist but she was told she couldn’t be because she was a black female and most scientists were old, white men. She was also dyslexic.
When she was a child she told her teacher she wanted to be an astronaut but her teacher said she would be better as a nurse. But she didn’t let that bother her; he was determined to become a scientist.
