      I wanted to be an astronaut when I was young and I was inspired by Helen Sharman, the first British astronaut when I was around 6. I’ve always been interested in space and would go to space if I had the chance, especially on a suborbital flight for a short period. The opportunities that commercial space companies are creating including Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin are really exciting and they’re opening up space to so many more people.
