My favourite & Successful post was the post about my acceptance into the PhD program. Those who know me know that doing a PhD has been a lifelong dream of mine since I was a little girl and this was incredible success for me. Especially because I am doing my PhD at the University and program and with the professor who were my first and only choice.


I received the 2022 IAF Young Space Leader Award this week and the post about it was probably one of the most successful posts on my page.
