Celebrating Women Who Dare
Anybody here?

Wow, awesome comm! Jerie? Wenona? Sarah, Marina? Anybody here?
Well, I'd like to join, even if I'm late and ya'll have already moved on to each saving the world her own way...

  1. Your real first name: Lora (really, I'm not that creative!)
  2. Your geographical location: Texas, US
  3. Age: 33
  4. Occupation: Systems Engineer (because it sounds better than Political Engineer!)
  5. Dream job: Astronaut
  6. Cause most passionate about: Freedom (Amen, Marina!)
  7. What's your best personality characteristic?: Perseverance
  8. What's your worst?: Demanding
  9. Favorite Fictional Heroines: Morgaine (C.J. Cherryh's moreso than MZB's), Ellen Ripley (of the Alien movie series), Captain Signy Mallory of the jump-carrier Norway (again, C.J. Cherryh's), Zoe Washburn (actually, all the women of Firefly/Serenity, even the villains)
  10. Favorite Non-Fictional Heroines: Valentina Tereshkova, Sally Ride, Benazir Bhutto, Amelia Earhart
  11. Favorite Girl-Power Movie: Aliens, really.
  12. What has been your most heroic moment so far: Nothing dramatic, every time I don't give up, every time I keep going even though it's hard, I lead the life of a person who might inspire others. College 1100 miles from home, followed by five years in the Navy, then a return to the vicinity of the Johnson Space Center to find a job (which I did), and now going to school at night while working full time as an engineer. Not quitting, not going back to where I grew up, even though it might be easier. Those are my heroic moments.

Howdy, howdy. *watches tumble weed blow by* This place has been deserted. I forgot that I was a member. lol. Kudos to you for not giving up. You'll get to where you need to be. :)

Thanks, Sarah. Nice to meet you.

Please think some happy thoughts for me: they are taking apps this year and I am in the window. I hope I can make myself sound cool enough to get an interview: I'll call it a roaring success if I succeed in getting them to take that serious look at me, even if they don't take me. It would mean I had done everything in my power to get there, right.
