Thank you

I am so much inspired by the work people have done in this industry, and I feel more confident about my work, myself and my dreams. It has not only boosted my morale but has given me some logical reasons which prove that my mission is achievable.

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of mentorship and networking that occurred at SmallSat. The many business cards exchanged and personal experience shared were invaluable to me and is something I believe will absolutely help me land summer internships, research positions, and even full-time positions in the industry after graduation.

This conference served as a career building opportunity, which will allow me to grow in experience in the aerospace discipline. SmallSat also served as a chance for me to open pathways for networking, with not only top companies in industry, but also with other students and other researchers. Furthermore, I am able to bring back the skills and knowledge that I gained through this conference and share them with the rest of my team. In this manner, knowledge and expertise will connect back to the academic community and inspire others to reach for the best in themselves and to promote scientific inquiry.

I also very much appreciated and learned a lot from talking with other universities who had booths set up near ours. I found that several of the teams working to build small satellites are facing the same issues that my team and I are going through, so it was helpful and reassuring to discuss those themes with other people fighting a similar battle.

This was extremely beneficial for me as it helped me understand the capabilities of small satellites in greater detail, as well as their limitations. Most of all, I had the opportunity to expand my network in the aerospace industry, both by meeting young professionals and veterans in the business.
