Student, International Space University (ISU)
Don't give up on your passions.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I am a multidisciplinary lawyer, currently completing a Master of Space Studies at the International Space University (ISU). I am broadening my horizons thanks to my current interdisciplinary studies in space engineering, space applications, space management, space policy and law, and human performances in space. I aim to have a substantial impact on research and the space industry.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I consider the space sector a platform for experimenting with the human capacity for collaboration and integration, in achieving objectives common to all humanity.
The idea of a final goal that unites students and professionals, different from a cultural and interest point of view, is what fascinates me most in this area.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
As a child, I wanted to study space, but I thought I was not sufficiently prepared in scientific subjects to be able to face the study in this area.
So, I decided to study law (a choice that I don't regret) and I found a way to adapt my skills to my greatest passion. Today, I study space in all its aspects, without being afraid of not being prepared enough.
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
I love working in this area, because it allows me to imagine the future through new technologies, and therefore something that I could create with my own ideas and hands
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
Not to give up on your passions.
When I was 6 I wanted to be an astronaut.
When I was 14 I wanted to be an archaeologist.
Then I graduated in law.
What do I do today?
A space lawyer trying to protect archaeological sites on the Moon, studying its geology and future space exploration missions.
