Valentina Arismendi

"One Small Step for Woman" is a story of persistence, equality, and possibilities. NASA's Project Artemis is a milestone not just for women in space, but for women everywhere as it puts us one step closer to gender equality.

It took the first place prize in Society for News Design's 2020 International College Competition.

See Valentina's portfolio for more information on this project.
