Hello, my name is Jack Patterson and I was born in Petawawa, Ontario. I lived in Petawawa until twelve I was 12 years old before moving to Ottawa, Ontario. In the fall, I will be going into grade twelve at John McCrae Secondary School. I am very interested in history mainly the Ancient Roman Period. I plan on studying history in a post-secondary setting after graduating from grade 12. In my spare time, I enjoy playing sports; I play baseball competitively as a catcher throughout the summer and for my high school team. I also spend a lot of time golfing during the summer. I am excited to go on this expedition with Students on Ice, where I can learn more about the environment as well as experiencing and seeing a whole different part of the world.
