Miller is one of four ambassadors chosen from communities across the country.

She and the other ambassadors will be spending eight days during June on board the "nautilus" during its six-month expedition.
They will have the chance to work alongside scientists and engineers, and hold question-and-answer sessions with audiences back home.
