Ms. Nagin educated us about the robotic mission to Mars, "Curiosity" of which she was a vital part. She also talked about the importance of women taking an active part in progress, the barriers that they face worldwide, and the best ways to tackle problems in different cultures. Having a NASA Engineer in Pakistan was not only inspirational, but also gave courage that women can breach new barriers everywhere!
