Dream Big, Dare To Achieve
I'm Tanya Singh from India. I'm a The Mars Generation Student Space Ambassador. The Mars Generation is a group for aspiring kids and students for dreaming big created by Astronaut Abby. I support her to help cheer up kids who are dreaming big. Now I'm saying my story.
I'm from India, a country which is full of cultures, festivals, and lots more. In India, I used to live in a small village where people only know a little bit about space, and some of them don't know anything about space, astronomy, or NASA. Being an astronaut is not only my dream, it's my granpa and dad's dream also. When I was in class 4th, I read the story about Kalpana Chawla and that is the time I felt that I also wanted to be like her. She is the first Indian woman astronaut.
"Kalpana Chawla was an Indian American astronaut and the first woman of Indian origin in space. She first flew on Space Shuttle Columbia in 1997 as a mission specialist. In 2003 Chawla was one of the seven crew members who died in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster."

My inspirations are astronaut Kalpana Chawla, astronaut Sunita Williams, astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, aspiring astronaut Abigail Harrison (also known as "Astronaut Abby") and aspiring astronaut Alyssa Carson.
In the place where I used to live, people would say to me that I can't be an astronaut because it's too costly and I don't have the ability to do it. Some of them told me to change my dream! But I say to them, "Dream Big, Dare To Achieve."
My parents are my biggest supporters, and also my friends who know me and understand me. I would like to tell all the people who think that they can't do a job, or else that their dream is so big they can't achieve it to please be confident and dream big! If your dreams are bigger, dare to success as well as fail.
Thank you so much everyone, for reading my story.
