2018 Space School Student - Jarrett

Hello! My name is Jarrett Murray, and I'm a 16 year old grade 11 French Immersion student at William Aberhart High School. I have always been very technical and at a young age I became fascinated by both aviation and space. My mom, who works for WestJet, always made sure I got to go up in the flight deck and talk to the pilots, crystallizing my goal of becoming a pilot.
