We're only a little over an hour into our ‪#‎DiscoChallenge‬ and I have no idea how people survived the 70s. This music is terrible! And I've only been listening to it for a little over an hour. But the challenge won't end until we raise $10k, so please donate to The Mars Generation and save me from this disco music! Plus on top of allowing me to change the station, you will also be supporting ‪#‎STEM‬ and space education! https://www.givemn.org/organization/themarsgeneration #GivetoMarsDay #gtmd15 #PotatoChallenge

Thank you everyone for your help with the #GivetoMarsDay #PotatoChallenge ! Not only did we raise a lot of money today, but we also raised awareness about #STEM and the importance of space exploration. And we couldn't have done it without you! I'm signing off for the night, but you all rock!!

I'm 18 and aspiring to be a NASA astronaut with a goal to be the first astronaut to Mars. You can follow my #JourneyToMars here! I work to inspire my generation, The #MarsGeneration to dream big, act big and inspire others and while doing that find their own Mars! I run a worldwide outreach program called the #FutureOfSpace the focus is to excite kids and adults about space and STEM and also educate people about why human space exploration is important. To learn more click here: http://astronautabby.com/space
Introduction
I'm a girl with a dream. I want to someday be an astronaut. But it doesn’t stop there, I plan on being part of the first crew to Mars. I know my dream is big, but with some hardwork and a ton of support from people around the world I know it will come true. 

My Google+ page will be a mixture of updates on my journey and other interesting space and STEM information. As much as reaching my dream is important to me, it's equally important that I share and inspire other kids to reach for their dreams too!
