My name is Radoslava, I am 15 years old and I am studying first year at Grammar school in Slovakia. I have been interested in astronomy and space science since I was a little girl, but the first contest in that area that I carried out, was 6 years ago.
When I was at primary school I was also a member of the astronomy group for 5 years. I am still a member of that group, not as student, but I help with the organization. We do various activities and trips related to astronomy there. Aside from astronomy I also like drawing (I am studying my 10th year at Art School), travelling and playing volleyball.
Well, I want to try something new. I thought it would be a good chance to make new experiences, meet new people – people with similar interests, but maybe completely different. And by making this project I wanted to refer to some problems we have on Earth, like light pollution or human attitude towards nature. And if we don´t stop, we will destroy everything.
Our project contained a story. I liked writing it with my teammate. We wanted to have a story from the future, but with real facts so we had to find lots of information. I really enjoyed it.
I learned lots of important things during the preparation of our project, but I think the most important thing I learned is that, if we work like a team, we can do anything, however if you work on your own it is very difficult.
I have not completely decided about my future studies, but I like space science and I hope that somehow I will devote my time to this area in the future.
