A few years ago, I decided to launch a camera into space.
The idea was born one afternoon on a video call with one of my managers at my internship. I finished my college applications but was still trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. At that point, I thought that I wanted to study a combination of business and computer science. I was taking STEM classes and preparing myself for my future, but I still didn’t feel challenged enough.
My manager suggested that I set a high-achieving goal for myself and reach for the stars. I took that literally and decided to launch a camera into space. Oh, and I wanted to do it in 30 days so that I could send it to admissions offices before colleges made their decisions.
