⁣My face got a one-second feature on @NASA’s official Youtube channel, no big deal 🤷🏻‍♀️🌜☄️🚀🛰…????⠀ ⠀ One day over lunch, I got a DM from NASA (yep, the one with 57M followers…) and I almost choked on my water. NASA sliding into my DMs, now there’s something I never thought I’d see! They said they loved my super old and embarrassing “A Song About Space” video from my channel and asked if they could possibly use it for a promo vid. Nothing was set in stone so after I got over the immediate shock of the NASA DM, I just silently hoped for the best. Then I got an email back with the video link, and in my pride I took all the screencaps! I always get teased for that old Space video of mine because 1) I still had braces & 2) I lisped (lithped) – but each time I thought about taking it down, I couldn’t bring myself to. I figured it’s part of my history & it’s fun to make fun of yourself every now and then! Little did I know, it would be the video that NASA would notice and end up watching… it just blows my mind!⠀🤯🤯🤯 ⠀ I guess there’s a lesson in there somewhere – to honor yourself always – your lovable, bewildering, sometimes even embarrassing self! So from the bottom of NENE REESE’s heart – a sincere thank you to the universe for this tiny, tiny victory. (ALSO 🔗 click link in bio to watch a redheaded Reese lisping in song) . . 📷 @marecollantes

“‘A Song About Space’ is my open letter to the universe. I feel like a lot of us have that innate fascination for space and what’s beyond us, what’s beyond Earth, and I just wanted to translate my curiosity into a simple but catchy song.”
