Dr. Shawna Pandya Is The Third Indian Woman Going To Space & Her List Of Achievements Has Left Us Awestruck
What do you call a woman who is going to be the third Indian woman to go in space, is a neurosurgeon, is a published author, an international Taekon-do champion, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur , a model, and a lot more? You might think of an adjective, but let me call her Shawna Pandya!
An Indian born in Canada, 32-year-old Dr. Shawna will follow the footsteps of Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams, as she is gearing up for two space missions in 2018. Out of a talent pool of 3200 dexterous brains, Shawna was one of the two finalists that made it for this mission.
She pursued Neuroscience at the University of Alberta, then even went on to get an MD. She is multilingual as well since she is fluent with Russian, Spanish and French! She has surpassed the Wonder woman clearly.
With a talent pool of this depth, one not only feels crazily proud of her, you can also not stop being in awe of her! When you aim for the moon and fly in the stars, the Earth does become boring after all. More power to you our super girl!
