Success Stories By Melissa Davis
It never fails. The same question comes to mind each time I enter through the gates of NASA Johnson Space Center.
How in the world did I get here?!
Im still amazed by the fact that this small-town Indiana native has worked for nearly two years at the home of human spacefight. Im even more amazed that I went from being the Centers newspaper editor to recently being promoted to Senior Communications Specialist, serving as my teams lead. Sometimes I find myself shocked that the chief of Mission Controls Flight Directors doesnt laugh at me when I call for an interview or an astronaut doesnt stop in the middle of a press conference to point out that I dont belong there.
Dont they know that basic algebra terrifies me, or that I never took physics? Cant they tell by looking at me how pathetic …
