Hello! My name is Julianne Jager and I am from Canada’s capital city, Ottawa. I am 15 years old, presently in ninth grade. My school is called École secondaire catholique Paul-Desmarais. I am also bilingual (french and English speaking). I love hiking, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, whittling, climbing, gardening, camping, traveling, reading, exploring, learning and so much more! In addition, I am a part of several groups at school including Environmental committee, Cultural committee, Pastoral committee, Swim team, Band (saxophone), Art club and Student Government (Sustainable development minister). As a member of Girl Guides of Canada for 9 years, spending time outdoors is at the top of my list of priorities. I have always been mystified and astonished by the Arctic regions and cannot wait to get there!
