There is always something that interests you and you have to work towards it, inspiring people along the way. Let us start as students and end up serving the human race. Read More...

Achieving something I dream of!

Then I got to visit the Sharjah center for astronomy and space sciences at Sharjah, UAE, where I met an astronomer named Ahmed whose words inspired me too. He told “so I'm an astronomer and you are an astronaut. Hoping to see you up there” Then I got to meet Astronaut Chris Hadfield who really helped me along my way to success, by providing me and the other aspiring astronaut in the world with videos of living in zero G, that really helped. I met him after his talk in Dubai about his journey. The most inspiring part was when... Read More...

The Mars Generation and The Astronaut Club

There I met the Mars Mission project manager MR. Omran Sharaf and a few of the other people who work at MBRSC, their words were inspiring, they gave me a push like never before.

Then I got recognized at my school as an astronaut in training and after... Read More...

Go Orion. This is the dawn of Orion, the dawn of America's new age of space travel” the following year I joined twitter as an aspiring astronaut and got to know many kids who had the same dream and I started to get noticed. The first person I met was Mackenzie as @JrAstronaut who supported me and inspired me. Then I met Astronaut... Read More...

The Beginning of my journey

At a very young age around my 7th year of standing on this planet, I dreamt of travelling through the stars. Right now I live in the United Arab Emirates, where 6 years ago when I was a third grader during a science class on the solar system, I happened upon a picture of the Milky Way and at that moment our teacher was explaining about living in space. After the class I went through what had been taught that day and I wanted to be a part of NASA's space program, so I talked to people around me and... Read More...
