“My mother always tells me to ‘dream big’ and meeting Dr. Todd Mosher and astronaut Dr. Don Thomas made my dreams even bigger. I believe a STEM education combined with my aerospace aspirations can expand to Sir Richard Branson offering me a career opportunity as an astronaut aboard a Virgin Galactic spaceship!”
