Dr. K’Andrea Bickerstaff
At age 12, K’Andrea Bickerstaff discovered that her grandfather’s unrealized goal had been “to attend MIT—the best school in the country.” Later that year, when Bickerstaff’s father got sick, “I asked my mom how I could help. She said, ‘Do well in school, so I don’t have to worry.’ From then on, I got straight A's, and MIT was my long-shot dream.”
