Computer and Astronautical Engineer
For someone who never thought she would work for NASA, this STEM shero has come a long way and is a bright example for young girls with Hispanic heritage. Scarlin has racked up many accomplishments within the space industry.
Awarded a full scholarship by the National Science Foundation (NSF), she interned at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and was on the ground control system team for the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM). She went on to become the mission planning lead.
3 Things We Love About Scarlin:
- Being a part of SWE (Society of Women Engineers) inspired her to start a women’s empowerment program at her workplace.
- Her advice to girls is, “Keep Going! Nothing’s impossible when you believe in yourself!” We couldn’t agree more.
- She loves what she does and hopes that it inspires others.
