What does it take to go from teaching middle school to leading digital efforts for the Artemis missions at NASA?
As we celebrate Space Diplomacy Week April 30 - May 6, 2023, we talk to Thalia Patrinos, an ExchangeAlumni using art, science, and space to connect to millions of people. Thalia, an alumna of the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) program, works as a full-time Communications Strategist contractor at NASA Headquarters. Her proudest accomplishments include leading digital efforts for the Artemis missions, overseeing the Faces of NASA photo series, and co-leading audio strategy for the agency.
The Artemis I launch last year was the first in a series of complex missions that will land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon. The mission is also uniting multiple nations around the world through the Artemis Accords, a coordinated effort between the U.S. Department of State and NASA.
Interested in exploring the overlap between science and art, how NASA connects with audiences in innovative ways, getting a job in the federal government, and learning a fun fact or two about South Africa? Tune in to this episode on Facebook @InternationalExchangeAlumni, and we’ll see you online!
