Path to The Stars: My Journey from Girl Scout to Rocket Scientist by Sylvia Acevedo
When Sylvia Acevedo was a child, she loved counting sidewalk squares in Spanish and English. Her mami couldn't guess where her daughter's curiosity would take her, but she supported Sylvia and helped her learn. When she joined the Girl Scouts, her troop leader encouraged her fascination with science and the stars. Sylvia was determined to pursue her interests though a bit unconventional at the time, to become one of the first Latinx to graduate with a master's degree in engineering from Standford University. A barrier-breaking rocket scientist and more, she is now CEO of the Girl Scouts of the USA.
