Shaunita Owens




It brings tears to my eyes to hear of Nichelle’s passing. Although the original Star Trek series ended long before I was born, I watched all of the reruns and was captivated by your gorgeous face. As a little Black girl from Virginia with a love for science, who was called a nerd, today I am proud to work in the computer science field, thanks to you inspiring me. Job well done. Rest well our Queen. Over and out.
