Michalina's Story

My passion is aviation.

I started my aviation adventure during summer of 2015. As one of ten lucky students, I have received a scholarship for gliding course near the city that I live in. The course was taking place during summer holidays, so I had to wake up at 3AM so we could start flying at 5AM. Although it was hard and exhausting, it was best holidays I've ever had. Now, I would like to devote my future to aviation and the science of astrophysics.

My biggest dream is to fly into space as an astronaut. I know there is a lot of work ahead of me, but every man or woman who was in space was a student at some point just like me. I want to study astrophysics, and I believe that Harvard Pre-College Program is perfect start for me.

A Note from Sobha Kizhakke Covilakath, Michalina's Teacher

Michalina has her mind set on becoming an astronaut / astrophysicist. She has a good basis of physics, and is mastering the math necessary to further her studies and succeed in the more advanced topics in Physics. She works hard and is not afraid to dream big.

The Harvard Pre-College Program will be, needless to say, unique in how she will be exposed to the expert knowledge and guidance of the practicing astrophysicists there. She will learn about the methods of astrophysics, current research, and probably participate in experiments. She will also be able to differentiate between various fields and plan better for future studies. This is such a unique opportunity and will, shall I say, open the doors of the universe to her.

Looking forward to this summer

I am going to be participating in the Harvard Pre-college Program this summer. I am really excited to be joining the program because it will give me the opportunities to gain new experiences. I am looking forward to working with other people my age and sharing ideas and advice with one another. Now I am trying to prepare myself so I will be able to do my best.

Success! Sobha Kizhakke Covilakath helped Michalina raise $4,650
