Jett Carter was born on the island of Hawai’i in 2002 and spent her childhood growing up around sandy beaches and lush landscapes. Jett has always excelled at school. She found an early interest in robotics, which she pursued for four years until she reached high school. She dipped into various things– surfing, tennis, archery, and starting a few businesses. By the time she was in high school, Jett had focused on two new interests; botany and marine biology. Attending a school that specialized in both, she worked with NELHA’s Jan War to observe deep-sea creatures and the company Smart Yields. She started paddling for Keauhou Canoe Club and SHEfound, a community within Kailua Konas eSports league. After winning a few competitions in both, Jett was on her way to college. It wasn’t until the summer of 2021 that she began work on a coffee farm at home– and found a great fascination and career interest in botany, business, and agriculture. Jett wishes to one day make strides in the world of sustainable agriculture and create a better future through her work.
