In my opinion everyone should have a hero and a dream.
And everyone should have a teacher that pushes them to dream bigger
become someone else's hero.
Colleen and Diana are two friends, teachers, mentors that have helped mold me into the Flight-Controller-in-Training that I am today.
They are brilliant, they are inspirational, they are women.
They promised they would root for me...and here they are.
I am here because of them.
Thank you both for your selfless gift, cultivating young minds and stressing the importance of science, problem-solving, communication, teamwork, commitment, respect, and determination.
I can't wait to meet the new pilots, astronauts, and engineers you inspire!
