On being named Royal Ballet School International Scholar, Jetro said:

I am very excited because being a student at The Royal Ballet School is my big dream. I’m so happy for the opportunity I’ve been given and also a little curious about what to expect in this programme. I am also very grateful for everyone who helped me in my journey as a dancer: my dance teacher Stefano Giuliani and all the dancers from ADE Company, my parents, and my grandmother, who is my biggest fan.
