Omaze and Virgin Galactic Announce Winner of Spaceflight Experience 


We are excited to announce that Keisha Schahaff of Antigua is the winner of an incredible trip to space aboard a Virgin Galactic flight and is Space For Humanity’s first citizen to join our Citizen Astronaut Program. 

Sir Richard Branson, Matt Pohlson, CEO and co-founder of Omaze, and Rachel Lyons, executive director of Space For Humanity, surprised Keisha at her home in Antigua to share the news that she would be fulfilling her dream of traveling to space. She hopes to be bringing her daughter, an astrophysics student, as her guest on this incredible journey.

“I’ve always had a lifelong love of flying and a fascination with space, and this is truly a dream come true for me,” Keisha said. “It means the world to me. I hope to share this experience with my daughter so together we can inspire the next generation to follow their dreams.”
