In anticipation of our event with NASA’s Ellen Stofan, this animation of the ‘known universe’ will blow your mind.

Last month the FT Magazine also ran a great article on the First Lady’s work called ‘Women of 2015: Michelle Obama‘. We recommend you have a read.

What we learned last month

Farah Pandith, former Special Representative for Muslim Communities, would give her 24-year-old self this career advice:

  • In your career, listen to who you are and not what other people think you should be doing.
  • Don’t rush to get to the next level or title. If you are passionate about what you are doing, you will shine.
  • If you are in a job that is too easy and there is no learning curve, it is not the right job for you.

    Have a great January!
