Greetings!  

Hello everyone. My name is Valentine :) 

Today is Thanksgiving in the USA (my home country) and a large majority of my father's side of the family is Native  American. To me, it doesn't matter if others consider us a "nation" or not. My ancestors weren't considered as living in a nation because they didn't have a flag. Asgardia has a bit more than a flag, including a physical presence in space with our name on it,  so I'm not sure how anyone has an argument about whether this is "real." 

I can see how someone could see this as a "scam." Regardless, I spend much more time and energy on other meaningless things in life so I'd much rather run the risk of being "scammed" into having fun and developing things for a hopeful space kingdom. ;) 

I don't have money and I'm a college dropout because my country somehow hasn't been able to provide basic funding for higher education for impoverished Americans, though they'd love to claim that they do. That being said, I do have a background in computer science and I hope I can do everything in my power to help us grow! I believe that we can make this happen, and in our age of political unrest and military hell, this may be the only way humanity can finally expand into space. 

I do have one critical concern: are dogs allowed? I'm serious. Unless you want to see a grown man ugly-cry about his dogs, you should allow dogs in space. Man's best friend, y'all!
