Interesting facts:

During my IChemE role model days, I was lucky enough to meet Princess Anne at the WISE Awards when I was a nominee. I unfortunately do not have a photo. I did however get a photo at a dinner with chemical engineering 2 times Astronaut Al Sacco, Jr. He was payload specialist on Space Shuttle Colombia mission STS-73 in 1995.
