28-year-old Lady sets record at US university, becomes first black woman to earn PhD in Biochemistry

A 28-year-old woman named Chantrell Frazier has made history as the first black woman to earn a Doctorate degree in Biochemistry at the Florida International University in the United States.

Chantrell Frazier, a student-athlete made history by becoming the first-ever Black woman to earn a doctorate degree in biochemistry at Florida International University, United States. She said she was able to achieve the feat because of the good foundation she had from her alma mater.

Chatrell graduated from Savannah State University, United States a Historically Black College and University (HBCU). She said her attendance helped establish her foundation and readiness for graduate school.

“Who can look out better for us than ourselves, It prepared me to not falter. It prepared me when things got difficult not to quit,” she said, according to Atlanta Black Star.

Chantrell said the transition from an HBCU to a public university was challenging as there were too many. However, she said what fueled her academic journey was her passion for forensic science which she discovered at the Savanah State University.

She mentioned that she persevered through the challenges because of her passion, unaware that she was on the path to making history. “I don’t know how far I would have gone, but I just took it to the farthest I could,” she said.

She said her studies while at Florida State University involved investigating the biology and chemicals of human body odors for forensic identification use. She added that her findings led to the identification of a person on the basis of gender that affects their body odor.

“It’s just being an example for them showing them that the ceiling is open because I feel like I’ve broken a lot of glass ceilings with what I’ve done,” she said.
