[] Fwd: Dr. Shawna Pandya Is The Third Indian Woman Going To The Space!


Dr. Shawna Pandya Is The Third Indian Woman Going To The Space!

Update:  The original article contained information that was based on previous media reports. However, post the clarification by Dr Shawna Pandya, we have edited the article to match the facts. The inconvenience is regretted.


Shawna Pandya made a public announcement on her Facebook profile correcting the mismatched credentials that were attributed to her.


What do you call a woman who is an astronaut, a doctor, a published author, an international Taekwondo champion, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur , a model, and a lot more? You might think of an adjective, but let me call her Shawna Pandya!

Born in Canada, 32-year-old Shawna will follow the footsteps of Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams, as she is gearing up for two space missions in 2018. Out of a talent pool of 3200 dexterous brains, Shawna was one of the two finalists who made it for this mission.

She enjoys singing and has trained in Muay Thai from NAVY SEAL.

She pursued Neuroscience for a while at the University of Alberta , but is a general physician.  She is multilingual as well since she is fluent in Russian, Spanish and French! She has surpassed the Wonder woman clearly.

She is currently in Mumbai and is visiting her family. She has also been a TEDex speaker and is now motivating students across the city while she is in her homeland.


With a talent pool of this depth, one not only feels crazily proud of her, one can also not stop being in awe of her! When you aim for the moon and fly in the stars, the Earth does become boring after all. More power to you our super girl!
