Meet the Winners

While most people can only dream about this one-of-a-lifetime trip, one person got lucky by winning a trip to space on Virgin Galactic’s first commercial space flight. Keisha S. is a health and energy coach from Antigua and Barbuda who managed to bag not just one but two tickets for the Virgin Galactic flight all because of Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic’s Omaze sweepstakes. Now you might be wondering if Keisha won two tickets, who is going to go with her? Keisha is planning on taking her daughter, who is an astrophysics student, along for the trip.

While being interviewed by People, Keisha said that she was speechless and unable to explain how happy and excited she is for this opportunity. She joined the sweepstakes thanks to an ad but had no idea that she was going to win. She then went on to mention that her daughter is studying STEM and is looking forward to working with NASA.
