MiMi grew up in Burma (Myanmar), with no television and few amenities, and having to pump water from a well. But she looked at the night sky, and the view of space, with a sense of wonder.
Coming to the U.S. by herself at 16, she found her passion in engineering. Today she is leading the project to develop a Mars helicopter technology demonstration, an entirely new type of space flight.
