Tanya Hockaday


As a child, I watched in complete awe Lt. Uhuru. I was mesmerized by the fact that a Beautiful woman, who looked like me, was 'in Space'. From that moment onward, I wanted nothing more than to be 'Like Her'. Science and Foreign Languages became my interest. I finally got to meet her, in person, when I was 20 years old.
Ms. Nichel Nichol aka Lt. Uhuru, you inspired and transformed my life. I will be forever grateful for that. I love and respect you!!!
Rest in Power!!
