“Like most people applying I’m certain I am amongst a group of incredibly idealistic yet courageously passionate human beings who are willing to put their foot where their mouths are. These people are called leaders and I would describe myself as such. I have always believed space is the next frontier for humankind and was born with my eyes fixed into the galaxies. It did not seem such a far off dream, as both of my parents worked in the aerospace industry. Astrocamp was my first camp.”
