What makes Team Tumbleweed special for our members?

Team Tumbleweed has given me so much more than just an opportunity to bring together my organizational skills with my passion for science and space exploration. When I joined this team almost 3 years ago, little did how much I'd learn and grow academically, professionally and personally. Every team member inspires me to be a better person everyday, and I can't wait to see the wonderful things that we all together can achieve!
