My name is Jakub and I am 15 years old. I live in Slovakia and I am a member of team The Dreamers. I am studying at primary school. I have been interested in astronomy and space sciences since fifth grade.
It was my team-mate. Because we were on summer astronomical camp and we were talking about Odysseus. And she told me that it could be fun to try this competition and we will have new experiences. So we joined this amazing contest and I do not regret it.
I enjoyed everything, because me and my team, made a project about something, what I want to do in my life and it was great feeling.
I learned lots of new information about exoplanets and how to detect them. On the other hand, I learned, that we need to focus on the Earth and actual situation (wars, famine, deforestation and much more) in the world, too. Because we live here and now!
The work for my project made me realize that this is what I want to do. It also showed me that I choose the best way to make my dream come true. I am really grateful for this opportunity, which has been given to me.
