Victoria Alonsoperez SSP11, winner of the ITU Telecom World Young Innovators Competition

victoria alosonsoperez

 

Victoria Alonsoperez is a 25 year old Telecommunications and Electronics Engineer. She graduated from the Universidad de la Republica (Uruguay), specialized in Aerospace Engineering. Her experience with the International Space University (ISU) started in 2011, after receiving a scholarship allowing her to participate in the 24thSpace Studies Program (SSP) taking place that year in Austria.
 
She took part in the 25th SSP in Florida, but this time as the Teaching Associate of the Engineering Department. Her best memories is the rocket launch that was organized on NASA Launch Pad 39-A. Indeed, she was part of the team that supervised the construction and the rockets’ launches of the participants of her department and collaborated with other faculties to build a scaled space launch system. This experience was very moving because it was from this legendary place that were launched Apollo and the Space Shuttles.
 
Victoria’s hard work paid off in 2012 since she won not only a Space Generation Advisory Council Young Leadership Award but also the ITU Telecom World Young Innovators Competition.  Her project to develop a system to detect earlier on, outbreaks of foot and mouth disease has been rewarded. Nearly 400 young entrepreneurs from 77 countries around the world participated in this competition.
 
Victoria is currently starting her own company to implement her winning project. She is also the Space Generation Advisory Council Coordinator for South America (an organization in support of the United Nations Program on Space Applications) and working on two books: one on aerospace engineering and the other, on small satellites.
