Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski, a physicist and Harvard Ph.D. candidate, has been awarded one of Marie Claire’s first-ever Young Women’s Honors. She has been named-checked by Stephen Hawking, called “the next Einstein” by her Harvard mentors, and currently has a job offer from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. As a young girl, Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski wanted to design spacecrafts. When she was 12, Pasterski began building a single-engine airplane from a kit in her garage, which took two years to complete. At 16, Pasterski was admitted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and was the youngest person in history to build and fly her own plane.
