I love the sky, stars, moon, sun, and all the universe. Every night I speak with the stars and they speak with me. I don’t know what they tell me, but when they wink to me I think it means “Be happy and enjoy your life and be kind toward every thing.”
My dream job is to be an astronaut. It is a unique and wonderful job. It is hard work and people think that it is impossible for a woman to be an astronaut. But I want to do hard work. I want to do the work that others can’t. I want to do impossible jobs and change impossibilities to possibilities. I want to show that girls and women are not weak and they can do whatever men can.
We can get what we wish. We people think that only Earth is in the universe. We think so small. We are jealous of each other. We think how if some people were not on Earth, we’d have more places for ourselves. When we are all crowded together we don’t see each person’s value but when we separate we can see it.
I am sure that by traveling to other planets an astronaut increases her own love toward our people and our planet.
I read a passage where it was written, “When we are small, we go out of our small house.” And when we come to our small house we will say, “Oh, thanks to God I am in my home.”
When we are big and we go out of our country and we come back, we will say, “Thanks to God I am back in my home.” And when we leave our planet and then come back we will say, “Thanks to God I am back in my home.” I think if all people see Earth as our home so we could live in peace.
I love astronomy because I love sciences like physics, and also because it helps me understand the power of God and the beauties and wonders of the universe. I am not as good in mathematics and chemistry and to become an astronaut I know you have to go to the best universities and know perfect English. But I can work hard in mathematics and chemistry, practice English and go to an English-speaking university.
One of my role models is the first woman astronaut—Valentina Tereshkova from Russia. She was so brave. When she was 26 years old she went into space for three days. She was not rich and she didn’t have access to a good life and education, but she was so courageous she applied to go to space and she succeeded in being chosen from hundreds of women. I love her because she had a very big dream and achieved her goals.
She had to learn how to use rockets and a spaceship in a short time. No one, not even her mother, knew she was traveling into space until the TV and radio announced the success. Now she is 76. Her husband is an astronaut and she wants to go to Mars, even if she cannot return. She says “Space is my life.”

Brava, Frozan! Your words and dreams are so beautiful. Keep writing, keep visualizing, and you are paving the way to your dreams’ fruition.
I especially appreciated:
“We can get what we wish. We people think that only Earth is in the universe. We think so small. We are jealous of each other. We think how if some people were not on Earth, we’d have more places for ourselves. When we are all crowded together we don’t see each person’s value but when we separate we can see it.”
So very wise. Please keep writing.
Very good dream and thoughts, of course. I wish you become what you want.
i love what you wrote😊😘
Very brave woman proud of her
Me too as well.
I want become an astronaut in ISRO. And I put the flag of India in black hole. I am from Bihar and I am reading at banasthali vidyapith in 7
Awww .when I was reading this, I thought it was my feeling. You described every single thought so nicely . I also feel the same but I can’t express my feelings in black and white as you did . I am in love with your essay . Keep it up .
Excellent but too much *and* is used. Difficult to deliver but, overall..GREAT!!!!
Yes ooo you really tried keep it up
I am inspire by you
Me as well
You are the best i also want to be like you
Not much good
Dear Frozan, What a wonderful line, “We think so small.” It’s true, we do. But maybe your essay will inspire us all to think bigger. Abby
We can get what we wish. So, go girl!!! Don’t let anyone stand in your way. xxx Suzanne
My special Frozan-jan,
I am SO proud of you! This is an excellent essay. There are so many interesting and important things to think about in what you have written. I have NO DOUBT that you will be Afghanistan’s first woman astronaut. When you fly over my house, please wave to me and I will blow you a kiss. Congratulations on a wonderful essay.
When I was young I too talked to the stars but there were no astronauts that I had heard of so I never even imagined anything more than maybe flying in an airplane! How the world has changed and people lie you with big dreams are the ones that make it change. You write with passion that makes me want to hear more from you. Keep on dreaming.
Love to you
Well i want to be a astronaut when I grow up
Brava, Frozan! I am so happy to see your essay! You have done a terrific job with it! I wonder what stars you are able to see now, and I’m very curious if we can see the same ones. I am trying to find a star map of Afghanistan for this time of year but haven’t found one yet. There is a lot of light at night here, so we can only see Ursa Major, Vega, Polaris, Mars, and Saturn (plus a lot of other stars I don’t know the names of). Earlier this summer we could see Draco. My favorite is Orion, but he doesn’t come for a few months… I hope we can see the same ones, even if it is at different times of year. Keep up your amazing work!
I fell really happy and thanks so much for sharing this to us.
I Love your this essay and you are so talented and I am sure that if you try you can be whatever you want I hope that one day.
Please continue your writing and be the best.
Best Wishes in the world.
I feel happy that u wrote such a beautiful essay 🤗… I hope that whatever u want to become u can… 😀
Frozan–We look at the same stars from different parts of the world. You have made them come alive. Thank you for your beautiful essay.
May you travel to the stars one day!!!
This is beautiful! I especially love these lines: “We people think that only Earth is in the universe. We think so small. We are jealous of each other. We think how if some people were not on Earth, we’d have more places for ourselves. When we are all crowded together we don’t see each person’s value but when we separate we can see it.”
I loved your essay. I sent it to my friends here in America and to new friends I have met in Canada. They loved it too. I didn’t realize, at first, that YOU had written it (remember we emailed each other last spring?) This piece is so wonderful. I used to teach science so I loved the science part you wrote about. But I also loved how philosophical you are in describing our place in the universe. You really have a gift when expressing your thoughts and dreams. I wish you all the best!
Great name by the way, but I am a young male from the U.S. who loves writing. And here we arent as repressed as people are there but everyone no matter who they are, all deal with great struggles in our lives. But reading this I know that you be a great person in this world. I don’t know what you look like or what your lifes like. But I know whats in your heart. And for that you’ve gained a friend who will think about you everyday and you have made me a better person at heart. I will wait for your greatness. When it comes I will rejoice with you. Writers all have stories to tell. Our tails are different but we can change the world more than anyone else, no matter how powerful they are. I will pray for you, and I wish the luck of a thousand stars. For you will glow, and light the way for others.
Good luck Frozan, I wish you the best in everything. Your essay was amazing and I’m so glad you have such big dreams. The bigger your dreams are, the higher you will achieve. You are not thinking small at all, and that is such a good thing! I hope you are the next Valentina Tereshkova, and I’m know you could be.
I hope you, out of thousands of women, are chosen to go to space. If Valentina Tereshkova can do it, so can you! BELIEVE! Yes, with hard work, we can do anything we want to do. It is true that we see the world with blinders on when there is so much more to be seen.
Frozen you are luckiest than me.that’s also my dream I have 16 years old I am also a girl from Afghanistan.I use from my father phone.don’t worry Allah is with us.I know Allah will help both of us
This essay is beautifully written!!!!!!
I do not think the English language is going to be an issue, because I have only known English in my life, and you speak in your essay….. not only with correct grammar, meaning, sentence structure!!!
Yet your writing is more correct in regards to the english language and communicating with exactitude then I could write……. and my only language is English!!!
Your passion, and dreams and goals are expressed in a manner that if I was head of NASA or Space-X, or any other Space Program, I would already choose you to receive the funds and education and space training you need to be a great astronaut!!!!
I am not in a position to do that but I am hoping and praying that your dreams and goal come true!!!
I especially am inspired by your reasons for why you want to be an astronaut, which come both from your interest in the Universe, but also your motivation comes from things of the heart….seeing that if we expand our understanding we will want to live in peace and harmony on earth, ….and also because I am a believer in God also,
I know you have the right attitude to be an astronaut that wants to use what you learn to help us all understand life better!!!!!
I know that if you keep the same positive positive attitude towards your goal, no matter how difficult all the steps to get to that goal are, that you WILL BE AN ASTRONAUT………..do not even let a seed of doubt, or anything anyone else says stop you from reaching your goal!!! If your heart, sould and mind are in harmony with your goal and stay in harmony with your goal YOU WILL SUCEED!!!!
I will pray for you because I believe God will help you, as long as you keep your faith strong, and also because God reaches out to those who’s dreams come from the heart and are in harmony with the love of God……………May God bless you, and I look forward to turning on the television one day to see you as you take off for your first visit to space!!!!
I do have one suggestion, ……there is a website called Kickstarter , you can set up a page their and you should include your essay…..It is a website for people with dreams, inventions, ideas for businesses in which certain people help with funding……..this may help you if you need assistance for College/Universities etc, I’m not sure if this site requires you to promise something back to those who invest, but if so there are other sites for raising funds…….
If you give me your permission……..I am also going to share your essay, with major universities, companies, and politicians here in the United States……as long as you don’t mind…….Also I could share your essay with local and national television news stations …..as they are always looking for inspiring stories to share on news shows……please let me know if I have your permission to share your essay with people in the United States
May God bless you!!!
The essay is beautifully presented
Oh my dear friend don’t worry we look like sisters that’s also my favorite job I have 16 years old I am also from Afghanistan you are luckiest than me.don’t worry Allah will help both of us.Allah is with both of us.
Rush & Flush towards your dream , that no one can ever stop you from getting there….
What’s your dream
I do understand your feelings as I also share the same aim you have. I want to become an astronaut. But people often criticise me. No matter what people say your dreams are your and you have to accomplish them . All the best dear. My age is 15. I am a girl. You can reply me or text in my number 8906057710. Please do reply . Do not hesitate.
I am deeply affected by your beautiful essay. I feel so connected with your thoughts and feelings, as I, too look up at the stars and sometimes feel as if they speak to me. I especially like the part when you say “I want to do impossible jobs and change impossibilities to possibilities.” Your determination to change the hard things into possible things is inspiring. I feel like your soul is a wonderful star shining brightly in the universe you have so poignantly described. I hope you will be able to continue to pursue your dreams.
Its so good I like it so much
You can succeed

I want a essay for a dream I have seen to become an astronaut. I want night dreams not like this. Bad essay.
Your essay gave me confidence again frozan, I dreamed of becoming astronaut from my school days, but due to my family financial condition & my parents dream to see me as doctor forced me to choose medical field but I failed to become docter,because its not what am dreamed of.
Now am in a position where I don’t know my way to go ahead.
I said to my parents I want to become astronaut, but they told me you are a girl you can’t do it .
They didn’t have pinch of respect on my dream
But still they are my parents,
I wanted to show them what I can do,in this process I saw your essay & it gave me more confidence.
Even girl can do wonders i will prove my parents.
best and your dream is so beautiful. I also want to beacome an astronaut
Yes me too it is very nice
Thank you for sharing your desires for the future ahead of you. I truly see you as an inspiration. I appreciate that you shared your dream to become an astronaut, and I like how your writing expresses the excitement you have for your future. You stated that you are not the best at chemistry and math, but I believe that you are capable of working hard and improving in those very subjects. I am curious to see where you are now, and I cannot wait for you to accomplish such great things. I hope you are able to reach the stars one day and keep up the hard work. The reasons you have that explain why you desire to be an astronaut amazes me because it stems from an interest in the power of God and the beauties/ wonders of the universe. You also pose good points in your work, for instance, you explained how you wanted to show that girls can be just as strong as men are and they can do what men can. I definitely agree with this point, because many times girls and women are seen as incapable of difficult work that men can carry out. But in reality, gender does not define how much one can excel in a skill or subject. Thank you for sharing your lovely dreams!
