Last week, I watched Miracles from Heaven. The movie made me reflect on my own life and also made me realize how fortunate I am. The week before we were off for Thanksgiving, I got to talk to an astrobiologist at NASA. We spoke for a very long time and I am happy to tell you that I have very exciting news. I will explain exactly what we talked about soon. With that said, I realized how lucky I am because I am getting the opportunity to work with NASA at the age of 16 and that with one of the most prominent NASA Scientists. Of course, this wouldn't have been possible without the support of many people like my parents, Mr. Wysong, and my wonderful friends. They are the miracles in my life.My parents have given me the wonderful gift of freedom. They have been so supportive of my decision to study astronomy. They are always looking for ways to encourage me in my journey towards space. Next is Mr.Wysong. I am so grateful that he is my teacher. He has been nothing but supportive in ISM. Mr. Wysong has given me the strength to push out of my comfort zone. For example, I am now able to network with successful scientists and be successful in difficult programs like NASA's HAS. I am so thankful that he is my ISM Teacher. Last but not least,my friends: they are one of my biggest support groups. My peers are always encouraging me and giving me amazing tips. I couldn't have made it this far without them. I am definitely going to miss all of them when they go off to college. Like I mentioned in my past blog posts, I never knew the specific steps to become an astrobiologist but now I see a path in front of me and I am excited to journey through it. Apart from this, I have started to work on a case study on the accomplishments/missions done with Mars. I also designed a satellite that analyzes extraterrestrial terrains to see if they are habitable for life. The past few weeks have been full of excitement and now it is time to start working on research showcase!
