Being the Person That Represents Humanity
Diana Trujillo reflects on her journey to NASA, and on where she wants her journey to take her next.
DIANA TRUJILLO: I still want to be an astronaut. I'm still shooting for that target. And I think that the difference is that right now I am enjoying my journey as a lead to the Mars Curiosity rover. I am enjoying my journey as a mother, as a wife, a daughter, right? Recognizing that I have multiple jobs, and it is not just one-- and that if I can excel at all of them and find the right balance, I can be that human being that I actually want to be if I ever make it to space and represent humanity.
