“I am so honored to be selected to participate in the National Academies’ Space Science Week Early Career Program! My sincere and heart-felt gratitude to the Academies for recognizing my professional accomplishments and passion to contribute towards expanding space exploration efforts. Importantly, a big thank you to SGAC for working hard to establish such opportunities that enable people to follow their dreams! I look forward to connecting with and learning from distinguished experts during the meeting; I look forward to using the knowledge gained to help give back to the community as well!”
“I’m so thankful to SGAC and the National Academy, and am thrilled to have the opportunity to experience first-hand the excitement of interacting with some of the most accomplished and involved scientists in planetary science as we work on defining the scientific goals for the future. As a graduate student looking to continue into academia and planetary science, I view the work done by the committee to be a crucial service that I hope to continue to be involved in later in my career.”
