    Meet NASA astronaut Dr. Ellen Ochoa — a Mexican-American from California. In 1993, she became the first Hispanic woman to travel into space — spending a nine-day mission aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery.
    .
    In addition to her “out-of-this-world” adventure — Dr. Ochoa is a distinguished engineer, an inventor, and also went on to become the 1st Hispanic — and only the 2nd woman — to be named as Director of the Johnson Space Center. Dr. Ochoa is truly a Champion of Change!
