Alyssa Carson
"I Am The Mars Generation"

Alyssa Carson is an extraordinary young lady.
(From Innovation & Tech Today)
Her story is contagious. In a world where young women rarely gain global popularity for their intelligence and hard work, Alyssa has made a name in the relentless pursuit of her goal: to be the first human on Mars. With the awe-inspiring support of her father, Bert, Alyssa travels around the world delivering speeches on the importance of exploring space, as well as science in general. Just 13, she’s truly a remarkable person. She’s attended every Space Camp in the world, and speaks Chinese, French, Spanish, and some Turkish in addition to her native English. People can’t help but tell her story.

Please take a moment to read more about her journey!
