Favourite memory of the Award:
This would have to be my favourite memory! I went out and enjoyed nature with my family, who I love.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
The biggest challenge of this award was being consistent. For example, when doing community service it is more impactful to come back each week instead of hammering it out in a day. I used to think hammering it out in 1 day was better but DoE taught me to think otherwise. By only letting me log 1 hour a week I learnt about the power of commitment and consistency.
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
I love all the sports that I play. So I did continue the 'Physical Recreation' award activity. My school offers a variety of sports each term and I love picking a new one when the time comes. So far my favourites have been swimming and softball.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
To prepare for my school's year 9 camp I convinced my Dad to take us hiking. We invited Nani (my Grandma) and she joined us too. The goal for this hike was to practise walking on rocky and uneven ground. We went to the beautiful region of Martin to experience 'Sixty Foot Falls'. This hiking trail was only 2 km, but little did I know, on camp we would walk 10km in a day! Overall I loved this experience. And, if you look closely you can see me on the rocks with my brother!
