This son of Mexican migrant workers had an incredible journey to become an astronaut for NASA
I love this story. He didnt wait to be handed what he so desperately wanted to be since he was 10 years old, to be an astronaut. He fought hard for it. Tons of rejections didnt put him off. He even learnt Russian so he could work on a project that would take him a step closer to his goal. Tenacity, perseverance… a Lesson for lots of us I reckon.
