Vinita Marwaha Madill is a spacesuit designer and engineer. She explains how encouragement and representation helped guide her career.

From This is Engineering:

When I saw pictures of astronauts in my library books when I was five years old, I was immediately hooked on all things space. My parents and teachers encouraged this fascination by encouraging me to tinker with things and to learn about technology. My dad even helped me to take apart the TV!

At 11 years old, I printed out the NASA astronaut candidate requirements, stuck them in the front of my school folder, and told my physics teacher I was going to work in Mission Control. Now I have fulfilled my dream by studying and working in the space industry in Spain, America, Russia, France, Canada, Germany and the UK.
