I have two daughters, both of them interested in science. I like to show them examples of how ordinary people can do amazing things, just by following their passion. Carolyn Porco is an amazing, brilliant and delightful example of that. I’m tempted to call her the embodiment of girl power, but that would be selling her short. She’s an ambassador for the power of finding and pursuing your passion. Ask yourself this. How many people talk about their job with this sort of excitement? How many people can hold your attention like this?
Kids, I hope one day you can look back and tell a similar story of how you discovered your passion, chased it hard and made a positive difference.
At the end of the day, that’s all that matters.
