I wanted to be the first Puerto Rican astronaut. Through Civil Air Patrol I learned to fly an airplane before I learned to drive a car. I earned my pilot license in 1979. In 1978 I applied to be an astronaut when women were finally allowed to apply to NASA. I didn't make it but I did eyewitness human space exploration history at NASA-JSC.

I connect with the explorers for the past 500 years with my interest in human space exploration.
