Amira Rae Collier, a college sophomore from Chicago, has dreamed of the skies since a young age. She hopes to one day work for an organization like NASA or Lockheed Martin, and she has grabbed every opportunity she could to get closer to her dream—joining the National Society of Black Engineers and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

But it wasn’t until Tuskegee Next that she was able to actually learn to fly.
