From TechRepublic:

For Trujillo, who is originally from Cali, Colombia, her interest in space started when she was a kid, grappling with the idea of how much there is out there to know — things that we don’t even know that we don’t know.

Heavy stuff. But, for a kid, it’s as simple as knowing that you want to touch the sky but can’t, she said. It’s there, but you’re only seeing a very small fraction of what it alludes to.

Trujillo started her degree in aerospace mechanics and biomechanics at the University of Florida, and finished it at the University of Maryland. She had applied and been accepted to an internship called NASA Academy at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. After her internship, she worked there as an operational manager for the program.

From there, she went to the Orbital Sciences Corporation, which builds launch vehicles and satellites, and worked for nine months on a contract bid for a vehicle that would dock with the space station. They got the contract and she learned a lot about working with NASA.
