A young social entrepreneur on a mission to educate, engage and inspire the next generation of space pioneers in Australia.

With the recent establishment of the Australian Space Agency and the development of the Australian space industry and community, it is important to help Australians be aware of the importance of space. There are stereotypes of space that need to be deconstructed, such as ‘space is only for people who like STEM’ or ‘space is a waste of money’. It is usually seen to be a ‘complex’ scientific discipline that requires a high level of knowledge. I believe a fresh perspective in the midst of the ongoing development of space in Australia makes this topic unique.

Space is a multi-disciplinary field requiring many different professions, with a rising interest in the areas of space tourism and asteroid mining fuelling the idea.

We live in exciting times, where space is reachable for anyone.
