But she could get excited about the planets, sciences and math, which is just what she did. Discover how Harriet went from graduating from university with a degree in mathematics, to a career in finance, to Outreach Coordinator of the Planetary Society, to that fateful day when she landed a major role as part of the Astroscale team. Harriet’s story will make you laugh, feel inspired, and most importantly, remember to never doubt yourself. Space needs Harriet. And space needs you.
