CSBR Member News: Alires Almon

Posted: June 20, 2017 

"If you could write a letter to yourself when you graduated high school, what would you say?

Alires Almon, the Orchestrator of Engagement for 100 Year Starship, would tell herself it’s OK to be nerdy.  It served her well in the long run. Ms. Almon is part of a team whose goal is to make human travel beyond our solar system possible in the next 100 years."


"Look to the stars - it is your destiny.  For some reason, you don't know that Grandpa/daddy's work at NASA was part of the early Space race. He worked with the Mercury 7 astronauts, supported all of the Apollo missions. You have the pictures, medallions and the NASA Snoopy Award to prove it.  He is a buried hidden figure. 

Just go ahead and learn to embrace it - you love science and are a true nerd (it’s okay to call yourself that in this day and time). Science is your friend - embrace it even more.  All the time you spent in the library reading instead of playing with friends will start to pay off. Your fascination with the human mind will be your foundation - between NPR and Phil Donahue's the Human Animal, it will be the foundation for all that you do. Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series is the inspiration for your career - psychology, modeling human behavior, and space travel. The love of that book is your connection to one of your personal heroes - Dr. Mae Jemison.  Being yourself - geeky, excited, opinionated allowed you to forge a friendship and working partnership. You like to bring things together that most people don’t think are connected, but you see the value in it."
