This week Chole takes us on an emotional roller coaster with the incredible story of Dr Kalpana Chawla. Dr Chawla was the first woman of Indian descent to fly in space, and was a skilled and accomplished astronaut. Her final space mission was aboard the ill-fated Columbia Space Shuttle. Dr Kalpana Chawla and her 6 fellow crew members would not survive the flight. Hers is an incredible determination of determination, ambition and the pursuit of childhood dreams.
Chole recommended skincare brand Frank Bod, which has sorted her skin out like a real grown up with a proper skin care routine. She also recommended an episode of Ahn’s Brush With Fame, with Missy Higgins.
Jussy recommends the new Disney movie Cruella, after taking her kids to see it.
