Space Scientist ● Consultant ● Founder ● Public Speaker
I was a guest on the International Astronomical Union Online Discourse Series and talked about the concept of "owning one's story" as path to empowerment. It was a whistle-stop tour of my life journey: budding, becoming and being. I also talked about Joan Feynman's cobwebs and blamed Red Riding Hood.
