Margaret Bourke-White took many famous photos all over the world. Bourke-White completed her undergraduate education at @cornelluniversity in 1927 and was an original staff member of both @Fortune and @Life magazines. She became the first western photographer allowed to photograph inside the Soviet Union and covered the invasion of the Soviet Union by the German Army as well as the Italian Liberation. In 1945, she accompanied United States troops as they liberated Buchenwald Concentration Camp. She covered Gandhi’s campaign of non-violence in India and apartheid in South Africa. Since her death in 1971, her photographic works have been used by the United States Postal Service @usps_service as postage stamps and her life has been portrayed on television and on the movie screen.

“Anthony Edward Stark, are you going to stop complaining and torturing your guests? Look at me Tony, I know you far too well, you are EXACTLY like your father! Don’t tell me “no”, I worked with him! Theeere! You can’t fool me! Alright! Science, you promised me science, you promised me technology. Dear god, look at all these marvelous inventions…This is extraordinary! When I think that back in my day we were doing almost everything by hand, can you imagine! Is it true that the King of Wakanda wants to meet me? Well, let’s not make him wait then. By the way, who is this little raccoon who tried to exchange my glasses and my earrings for…a wheel, I think? He seems to be interested in my wheelchair as well. What an extremely intriguing creature!" (INFO: Katherine Johnson is an African-American mathematician who made contributions to the United States' aeronautics and space programs with an early application of digital electronic computers at NASA. She calculated the trajectory of the first moon landing BY HAND. She was portrayed on screen by Taraji P. Henson in the critically acclaimed movie “Hidden Figures”. Katherine Johnson turned 99 this year.) #buckybarnes #stucky #sebastianstan #steverogers #chrisevans #marvel #comics #captainamerica #thewintersoldier #civilwar #fanart #art #illustration #artistoninstagram #photoshop #avengers #disney #portrait #infinitywar #avengers3 #tonystark #rdj #ironman #nasa #katherinejohnson #hiddenfigures

When our founder @sphoenixjones first started LPF and STEAM Power, she was unsure of how the program would be received or how she would find communities to serve. Yet she continued on. In time, help came. Communities reached out. Children eagerly awaited our return. Although 2017 has been truly amazing, we are excited for what 2018 will bring. We are #takingSTEAMtothem and we love it! Thank you all for your support! #stemforgirls #hiddenfigures #mentoringinplainsight #MentoringIPS #womeninstem #steamprogram #stem #youth #youthempowerment #nonprofit #donate #communityservice #volunteertoday #giveback #ward8 #STEAMminority

As 2017 comes to a close you maybe fearful of what 2018 holds for you. Reflect on what you've encountered and achieved. Recall all the reasons you wouldn't be able to do somethings. How many of those things did you achieve? Or did you stay in FEAR - False Evidence Appearing Real? In 2018 don't let FEAR control your life. Do it in FEAR. No matter what IT is just do it in FEAR.
