Shawna Pandya made a public announcement on her Facebook profile correcting the mismatched credentials that were attributed to her.
What do you call a woman who is an astronaut, a doctor, a published author, an international Taekwondo champion, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur , a model, and a lot more? You might think of an adjective, but let me call her Shawna Pandya!
Born in Canada, 32-year-old Shawna will follow the footsteps of Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams, as she is gearing up for two space missions in 2018. Out of a talent pool of 3200 dexterous brains, Shawna was one of the two finalists who made it for this mission.
