Jeunes Citoyens / Young Citizens

Colin Richmond, British Columbia

Fair address: Richmond Regional Heritage Fair

Project: Chris Hadfield

The project is about Chris Hadfield. From his early life to his 3 space flights, achievements and socializing with the world.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

Chris has gone on 3 space flights. In each of them, Chris has done something significant to Canada's history. On the first one, he was the first Canadian to operate Canadarm in orbit, the second, first Canadian to do a spacewalk. On the last, he was the first Canadian commander of the International Space Station.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Chris has been loved all over the world. On his last trip to space, he used social media to connect with people all over the world. Before, he had not much twitter followers, now he has 2 million followers. @Cmdr_Hadfield

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Chris wants to be an astronaut since he watched the Apollo 11 Moon landing. He worked hard to make his dream come true. I also want to set my goal and to make it a success in the future.

    Great use of backgrounds made it more interesting to watch. Also the moustache and ukulele was a fun touch.
