Favourite memory of the Award:
For my silver voluntary service I helped to coach a young local boys soccer team. Seeing the team execute what we had practised in training during games, and being involved in the excitement whenever we scored or won a game was always so enjoyable and exciting. You couldn't help but smile!
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
Having to balance so many different activities and sports with schoolwork has been a challenging part of the award. However I have progressed through bonze, silver, and am now completing my gold award, and have gained much experience in time management and organisation along the way. Whilst it has been a big commitment, it has been worthwhile in so many ways having learnt how to manage my time and having made new friends and amazing memories.
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
I continue to keep up physical activity, running and playing soccer every week. I've also made some great friends through my soccer team and continue to catch up with them when I can outside of soccer training.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
My sister and I did a coastal hike along the Great Ocean rd in Victoria for our Silver adventurous journey. Over the course of 3 days we walked about 60km. We did get a little lost and found ourselves on a tiny track through lots of scrub! However overall it was a great learning experience and I feel I gained much more confidence and independence in planning and travelling alone, as well of course as getting to see some beautiful sights along the way.
