Back in 2002, I joined a trip to Houston, to attend the World Space Congress (WSC) and visit some tech sites including NASA JSC. During this trip I heard that an organization called Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) was celebrating its first Space Generation Summit in conjunction with the WSC. The name stuck in my mind. I was still very young to join, but this picture of students and young professionals actively contributing to something I was also passionate about inspired me.
