My name is Yordel Jackson. I am a grade 11 student at Ascension of Our Lord Secondary School. I was born in Jamaica and I came to Canada when I was four years old. I love the outdoors, cycling with my mother, swimming, and travelling. I’ve done a lot of volunteering in my community. I just recently participated in the Peel Region Police 5 K Race Against Racism. I also participated in the production of the Region of Peel Blue W commercial. I am an active member of the Advertising and Science clubs at my school. I am excited to be apart of the SOI expedition 2014. I will be happy to share my experience with my school and community when I get back home.
