Hello, my name is Alyssa Carson call sign “Blueberry” and at 3 years old I wanted to fulfill my dream of being an astronaut. I have been to Space Camp in Huntsville AL. 13 times. I attended Space Camp 7 times, Space Academy 3 times, Robotics Academy 1 time Advanced Space Academy 1 time and Aviation Challenge 1 time. The first time I went to Space Camp I did a parent/child camp with my dad and won the “Right Stuff Award”. Other than Space Camp I have been to MIT for Sally Ride Camp, attended 3 Sally Ride Day camps, and have witnessed 3 Space Shuttle launches and engine test firings at Stennis. I was invited and attended International Space Camp at Space Camp Turkey in August 2012 & Space Camp Canada in July 2013, becoming the first person to attend all three NASA Space Camps in the world. I speak Spanish, French, Chinese, and English. On October 9, 2013 I became the first person to complete the NASA Passport Program, going to all 14 NASA Visitor Centers in the US. There was a ceremony for being the first at KSC on November 18, 2013 in connection with the MAVEN launch, which I also witnessed. I was invited by NASA to be on the MER 10 panel in Washington DC to discuss the future missions to Mars in the 2030s on January 7, 2014, live on NASA TV. In the summer of 2014 I gave a TEDx talk in Kalamata, Greece, spoke with kids at Space Camp Turkey, met with the Mars One team in the Netherlands, toured Cambridge and International Space University where I will attend college, attended Euro Space Camp in Belgium, National Space Center in the UK and graduated from National Flight Academy in Pensacola and VA Space Flight Academy at the NASA facility in Wallops Island, VA. I also graduated from Gladiator School in Rome. September 12, 2014, I was invited to the Ribbon cutting of the VAC for the SLS rocket. The VAC is 170 ft tall and will be the tool to make the rocket to send humans to Mars. January 30, 2015 I gave the closing speech at Pangea 2015 Starting Point in Madrid, Spain. I was one of the speakers at X-STEM in Washington D.C. April, 2015. In the summer of 2015 I graduated from Cosmosphere Space 201 & VA Flight Academy Advance Rocket. I audited classes at International Space University for two weeks and intern at Space Camp. I hope to be the first or one of the first on Mars.
