Description
Information
Anousheh Ansari tells of her childhood in Iran and her family's exodus to America after the Islamic Revolution. After settling down in Texas, Anousheh built a computer technology firm from the ground up, which eventually allowed her to achieve her childhood dream of spaceflight. As the first-ever female commercial spaceflight participant, her story became politicized, culminating in a debate over whether she would be allowed to display both the American and Iranian flags on the sleeve of her spacesuit. Later, Anousheh started The Ansari Foundation, a nonprofit which supports social entrepreneurship, and is especially committed to ensuring the freedom of women around the world and supporting female entrepreneurs. Ultimately, this is the story of a woman who has become a role model to people around the globe struggling to overcome economic and cultural barriers, as well as those dreamers who look upon the stars.--From publisher description.
