Providing accessible content for students not only helps them succeed in school, it equips them to flourish years later in the workplace. Denna Lambert began accessing RFB&D books in the third grade, and continues today in her role as a young professional at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. The bright young woman in this two-minute video reflects RFB&D's mission in action.
