AIAA SciTech Conference – 2024

Through my collegiate and professional endeavors, I had the great honor of speaking as a Higher Orbits Panelist at the incredible AIAA SciTech Conference , a professional convention focused on aeronautics and astronautics, this past January. I had the pleasure of meeting some of the greatest astronautical minds of our era, as well as immersing myself in the industry for the first time.

I am so grateful for this amazing opportunity, one that wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the HIGHER ORBITS FOUNDATION and AIAA! Thank you so much for giving students, like me, the experience of a lifetime.

This was my first professional conference, let alone one that I got to present my experiences at. I would highly recommend any middle school and high school aged students to check out the Higher Orbits Foundation (https://higherorbits.org/), an organization that empowers youth and ignites interests in aerospace through creative and challenging projects. I’m so grateful to have been a part of their program during high school.
