Sue Eng


As a little girl, not close to pretty, a bit heavy, with thick glasses and uneven teeth, seeing you on tv was magical. You were the most beautiful woman I knew – smart, empowered, gorgeous. Each week I looked forward to seeing your on screen, charisma, grace and leadership was life changing. Seeing a woman on the bridge in a position of power cemented the idea woman we’re leaders. My mom always showed me that and your Uhura helped perpetuate that dream. Thank you. Rest in peace.
