She said herself in an interview in the Spokesman Review from Spokane that her third grade teacher nominated her because " She knew I wouldn't have trouble talking in front of the crowd!" When Kiki, who is going to be a sixth grader this year, left for Boise she still hadn't decided on the question she would ask. I'm sure by now it will be tough to narrow her questions down to one.
Tomorrow the twenty minute questioning session will take place at the Discovery Center in Boise. It is a proud time for me to have a teacher representing our profession in space. It is icing on the cake to have my niece talking to her in space! This auntie's proud buttons are popping tonight! You can read another post about Kiki Aru's trip to Boise on my sister's blog here.
Kiki Aru will be joined by NASA representatives and members of Idaho's congressional delegation at the Discovery Center tomorrow.
Way to go girl . Your Aunt C and Uncle E are very proud of you!
