Alumni Mireya Featured On PBS Web Series


Former Miami Dolphins Cheerleader Mireya Mayor discusses her life as a National Geographic Correspondent on the Emmy-nominated PBS/NOVA web-series The Secret Life of Scientists.   

In a series of three short films, Mayor tells us about her overprotective mother (who wouldn’t let her join the Girl Scouts because it was too “dangerous”), her life as a Miami Dolphins Cheerleader, discovering a new species of mouse lemur, her encounter with guerrillas in the jungle and having her canoe overturned by an enormous river otter.
