Prove Them Wrong: Emma Kalayjian, NASA Designer

April 26, 2021

If someone told you they didn’t think you could do something, would you sit there and agree or would you do everything in your power to prove them wrong? Meet the Elle Woods of the automotive industry, our firecracker guest Emma Kalayjian:

  1. She is a user interface & experience designer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (UI/UX @ NASA JPL)
  2. She’s obsessed with cars
  3. She is also on the 2021 Forbes 30 Under 30 list
  4. She never thought a space company would be hiring for business majors. Did you?

In this episode, we’ll learn about stigmas around hiring practices, the importance of giving space (heh) to your feminine and masculine energies, and what it means to take responsibility for your successes. Emma is currently working to make educational content on aerospace and automotive more accessible to young girls.
