She's been working with NASA for 9 years, so I think she is owed this trip.
Brave? Yes. A pioneer in the making? Without a doubt. Had a childhood? Extremely doubtful.
She has had her childhood stolen, so she is due a payback. Fair play to her, I say.

...Plus their could even be a change in requirements by then, needing younger people, as she'll be near 30 then. Best of luck however.

a 13 year old takes an early interest in Mars and suddenly she's the FIRST person to attend all THREE space camps? THE FIRST to do so?? How is that the case?? Not one other person has had the time (or money?) to attend three 5-day camps??? I know I would have done that in a second, were I given the chance.
my point: just because she is young and has had a good education (I do wish I had parents that exposed me to multiple languages early-on), in what way is this person suddenly supposed to be a possibility for the FIRST PERSON ON MARS..??
I'm sure there's only a billion (or so) other people upon the planet which are just as (if not moreso) qualified.
sorry to be a downer haha

I don't see anything from NASA that confirms she will be the first person on Mars. It's all made up!
So what, she went to NASA camps, anyone can do that.
