P2K: After working 48 hours a day when you're here, what do you do on the outside? What are your hobbies?
Nagin Cox: First and foremost, that I try to spend as much time with my husband as possible. We like to do a lot of things together. We like to travel. It seems pretty logical to me that if you're interested in exploring other planets, you would be interested in exploring this one. I'm also involved in some volunteer work with a women's self defense program. I think a lot of the situations in the world have to do with how well women are able to take care of themselves and how strongly their rights are represented. So one step at a time here the program teaches women about having self esteem, taking care of themselves physically and everything that goes with that.
