My name is Justin Clark. I am 18 years old and have just graduated from high school. I live in Victoria, BC with my parents, my older sister, and cat named Pepper. My love for being in nature and learning about it has led me to this trip to the arctic. In grade 2, I had a student teacher from Tuktoyaktuk who inspired me to learn about Northern Canada’s culture and its natural beauty. I enjoy studying science, specifically about the environment. My plan is to go to College to study Environmental Science. I live near many nature sanctuaries and hiking trails which I love to spend time in because they give me a sense of calm and happiness. Other recreational activities I love to do outside include canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, and rock climbing. Visiting the Arctic is a dream come true for me.
