On making history, Mareena wrote: ‘First black woman to earn a PhD from MIT in Nuclear Engineering. ‘No one can tell me God isn’t. Grateful is the best word I have to describe how I feel. Grateful for every part of this experience – highs and lows.
Every person who supported me and those who didn’t. Grateful for a praying family, a husband who took on this challenge as his own, sisters who reminded me at every stage how powerful I am, friends who inspired me to fight harder. Grateful for the professors who fought for and against me.
Every experience on this journey was necessary, and I’m better for it.’Mareena also has a B.S. in Physics from the historically Black College, Florida African-American University.
