Promoting STEM in Schools: My Very First Classroom Chat - Astronaut Abby | STEM Advocate | Scoop.it

The idea of speaking up and asking for what you want in this world is important. I would not havebecome Astronaut Luca Parmitano’s mentee had I not asked. I would not be attending his first launch into space if I had not asked. The truth is, I often say I am lucky to have these experiences, but all my amazing experiences have stemmed from me asking others to help me. If you don’t ask, people will not know what you want or how they can help you.
