Alissa Love from Rapid City, South Dakota

Hi! My name is Alissa Love. I am an aspiring astronaut. I have my Undergraduate Degree in Chemical Engineering and I am currently working a Masters Program for Green Chemistry. As part of my research, I work at an underground lab (SURF) at an old gold mine in Lead, South Dakota. Being an astronaut is a big dream, one that forces me to live out all of my smaller dreams along the way. My next step is to get my private pilots license, which is why I applied for this scholarship. It’s been an amazing journey and I’m excited to see where it takes me – hopefully all the way to Mars!
