My name is Kimberly Jarvis. I’m 18 years old and from a little town on the “boot” of Newfoundland called Lawn. I’m in grade 12 and I go to Holy Name of Mary Academy. I was privileged enough to receive a full scholarship on the SOI expedition this summer. I love sports, Allied Youth, horseback riding and the outdoors! From the expedition I’d like to gain a better understanding of the Arctic and how it’s being affected by climate change. Learning about the vast environment of the Arctic with its breath-taking scenery is a once in a lifetime experience. By seeing this part of the world up close and personal, I hope to take all I learn and put it into my own life; change the way I look at the world and use those experiences to help others try and better the planet as a whole.
