“I am a global citizen,” Namira Salim said , “and I literally live in the stars.” She says this quite simply, as if it’s a matter of fact. Namira is a space diplomat, trained as an astronaut, a proponent of space tourism and hopes to be soaring into space soon. When she does so, she will be the first Pakistani to go to space. “I keep reading captions where I am touted to be ‘the first Pakistani woman who will go to space’. But I will actually be the first Pakistani,” she smiles.
