Meet John, one of our kids in the Taking Up Space program. Visit our outreach program here: taking-up-space.org
This year, we received special funding to take a very unique individual to Space Camp. John is nine years old, is a member of the Pascua Yaqui tribe, and is very interested in both space and his own cultural roots.
Since John was three and a half, he has been involved with traditional dancing. He would like to train to become a Temasti, which is the highest spiritual leadership role he can attain in the Pascua Yaqui culture, earning the respect of the elders.
John asks lots of questions and is very curious.
He also loves to read and sing, and is in his church choir. One day John started coming home with space books from the library and told his family that he wanted to become a NASA scientist.
“He’s like a sponge, soaking everything in and always wanting to learn more.”
Naomi Escalante – John’s mom

Hi, Bryan. Thank you for you comment. I will drop one in the mail for you today. Hope it finds you soon.
Hi. I hope Czarina Salido sees this. Thank you for the Facebook invitation. I’m afraid I’m only active on a personal level in FB. Barely even that lately. I’m happy to connect through Linkedin. Best of success with this. It’s especially nice to read about Taking Up Space.
