Meet Dr. Camille Waldrop Alleyne, the Woman Inspiring Girls Across the Caribbean Region
Dr. Camille Waldrop-Alleyne is a Trinidad and Tobago-born NASA aerospace engineer who has recently partnered with The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States’ (OECS) Commission to motivate girls in the OECS regions to reach for the stars against all odds.
Alleyne will use her personal journey and success story, along with the positive message of the film Hidden Figures, to inspire and empower 10,000 girls in various parts of the region to reach their full potential.
“When you empower and inspire youth to believe in themselves and their capacity for greatness, they embrace their power to be the leaders of tomorrow – leaders who will create positive and lasting change in their communities and our world.”
The Eastern Caribbean leg of the 10,000 Girls Tour will host 1,500 girls in each island, with emphasis on underserved rural and urban communities. Dr. Alleyne , along with her team, are aiming to visit at least ten Caribbean islands by the end of the year.
