“One of the things I didn’t know was his poor background. She came from a situation where, basically, there was nothing in her family, “says Weinstock. As the daughter of immigrants in New York City in the 1930s, Dreselhaus went through one of the most difficult times in American history. She got her first job at the age of eight, as a teacher for a special needs student.

Weinstock was also surprised to learn of Dreselhos’ deep love for music.

“Music played a major role in every phase of her life,” she says. “Without music, she would not have become a scientist, or at least it would have been a very different path.” , Received a scholarship to music school with Violin Prodigy, and continued to play the violin at least two days a week until her death, making music a focal point in her family and in her professional life.

Weinstock hopes his book will inspire the next generation. “If I had a book like this when I was growing up,” she says, “look at this example and say, ‘I want to do something like this too.'”
