My Space Adventure

I'm Going to Space!

As the first Black woman confirmed to fly with Blue Origin on New Shepard, I am expected to be the sixth Black woman to cross the Kármán line – the internationally recognized boundary of space!

New Shepard is a reusable suborbital rocket system named after astronaut Alan Shepard, the first American to go to space.

30 years after former NASA astronaut Mae Jemison became the first Black woman to travel to space in 1992, I am honored to follow in her footsteps as we begin to realize the potential of public access to space!

“Aisha's story is inspirational, and she is an engaging speaker with a magnetic personality. I highly recommend Aisha if you are seeking a fascinating keynote speaker.”

Dr. John Wensveen

“Aisha is a phenomenal young woman who spoke with our entire employee body for Black History Month.  She is a Modern Day Hidden Figure and we enjoyed hearing her story of overcoming obstacles and dreaming big!  She wowed the audience by sharing her road to success and the impact she made along the way - and she's just getting started!  Knowing that she is a true history maker helped us continue to celebrate our diversity within Karat and the importance Black Engineers have in our everyday lives and the impact they are making on our future! #BrilliantBlackMinds”

Portia Kibble Smith

Director of Programs and Partnerships, Karat

"During February 2023, I had the honor and privilege of hosting a Fireside Chat with Aisha Bowe in honor of Engineering Month and Black History Month. Aisha was captivating and authentic in her storytelling as she inspired the audience of 350+ attendees. Aisha took us from her humble beginnings in Ann Arbor, MI, through her unconventional education path and unique career journey, to becoming a 2X tech start-up Founder & CEO. Aisha isn’t just asking for a seat at the table - she is building and owning her own table. The impact and inspiration that Aisha provided by sharing her own life story and the many ways she’s giving back (founding LINGO, creating a funding source for Black students pursuing Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan, & more) is a testament that you are in control of your own journey. Aisha is an inspirational leader and here are a few of her quotes that strongly resonated with her audience: "I spent way too much time questioning myself when I should have been questioning you. / Think bigger about who you are and what you think you can be. / You are a role model as soon as you think you are.”  - Thank you for being amazing, Aisha!"
