(CNN) – Landing an internship at NASA has been a dream come true for India Jackson, who balances her time between raising a preteen daughter and using advanced math to predict solar flares and radiation belts.

“I’m kind of like a space weather girl,” she said. “I will be using my mathematical background in order to try to predict solar flares and radiation belts.”

It’s a paid internship, but moving is expensive. Jackson said she’d have to fly with her daughter, Jewel Henry, to Texas, find a place to live, rent a car and keep paying her bills at home, so she’ll have a place to live after the internship.
