Wow! What an honor to be a part of the Space Girls Space Women Exhibition. The exhibit is an effort of SIPA Press in partnership with ESA (European Space Agency). SIPA Press worked with female reporters over the past few years to meet and share the stories of  “the girls who have their heads in the stars, female students passionate about space, and women who are today at the heart of the space adventure.” The result of this worldwide effort is an exhibit that will travel Europe over the next year starting in France. The exhibit includes photos, stories and videos of the different women interviewed.

I was fortunate to be interviewed and photographed for this project while attending Space Camp in Huntsville Alabama in the summer of 2014. A photo of me and my friend, Kim Spummets (seen above) has been chosen as part of the exhibit. Pretty fun to appear in French articles!
