I’m from a small town on the mid-north coast of NSW and was given the opportunity to go to Space Camp in October 2019 by One Giant Leap Australia Foundation. I received a grant that provided me with the most life-changing experience anyone could ever have.
The trip was an eye-opener to me. It made me realise that there are many STEM pathways in the space industry. You don’t just have to be an astronaut. The trip was an amazing experience, and I would go back in a heartbeat. I made some lifelong friends from all over Australia.
This trip is an incredible experience. You get pushed to your limit. You work with others that have the same goal in mind. But most of all – you gain confidence in yourself. I recommend this trip to anyone. It can help you decide what career path you want to take. The best thing I have ever done.
