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!
