Personal background
I would probably considered a young Setizen. I am 14 and from New South Wales, Australia.

Ever since 2007, I've been fascinated by space and the solar system. In 2010, I began to monitor NASA's progress in the cosmos and watched their exploration. Although I couldn't travel to the US, I saw the launch of many space probes such as Dawn, Juno, GRAIL, Mars Curiousity online. In 2011, I got my first home telescope, and although it was very basic, I did manage to find Jupiter (observed the faint 4 Galilean Moons), Mars (a red tint) and Venus (very bright). I hope to get a new telescope in the future.

Astronomy topics I like include the study of the outer solar system and dwarf planets, with the majority being the Kupier Belt Objects and the Scattered Disk. One day I would hope to send a spacecraft to the far reaches of our neighbourhood - possibly to a target such as Eris. In fact, I wish to work at NASA as an engineer or mission controller.

In 2013, while I was reading a book, I saw a website called SETI@home, and saw that it is used to find extraterrestrial life. Interested, I downloaded the program on the site and that is how I met SETI. I am a member of the Australian SETI team and I hope that I would give the world a helping hand on finding intelligent life.

The universe is so vast, and there should be at least millions of types of intelligent life. All we have to do is find them, and we will eventually find them. I believe that whatever aliens we find will not be hostile, and an interplanetary alliance will be achieved. Now imagine that happening in your lifetime!
