I’ve traveled around the Sun eighteen times on a floating blue rock — Earth.
When I turned eighteen last week, I started to reflect on the biggest learnings I’ve collected during my time on this planet.
I tried to choose my top 18, but there were so many knowledge nuggets…
I ask myself this question, quite often because I love thinking about what the future could look like and I believe that the best way to predict the future is to create it. 🔑

Five… Four… Three… Two… One…
And lift off!
The space race to get to the Moon kicked off a future with space exploration and brought awe to humans around the world.
Humans are curious beings. We want to understand the unknown and something many of us are curious about…
And other photosynthetic organisms.
Yep, you read that right!
I know that’s amazing.
When I read that I was mind blown. 🤯
Why is this so dope?
