Favourite memory of the Award:
My favourite memory was after the completion of my first adventorous Journey whereby we sat under a tree and started performing some entertainment presentation. There was this group that made a very hillarious presentation which sent us laughing all through. It was a song and some participants were imitating the sound of some music tools such as a sollo guitar on a common song. Both the assesors and our Cordinator were there busy laughing until we forgot the hardship we had faced while doing our adventurous journey.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
Given the fact that I came from a place with no hills and hiking trails, I found it difficult to climb my first hill on my first Bronze expedition which we started ascending about 30 minutes after starting our hike. I was panting and sweating so heavily. What motivated me was seeing ladies trying their best to go up the hill (not knowing that they were used to it). I tried my best to prove them wrong only to find out that it wasn't their first time doing the hikes. It was really tough for me going up that hill.
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yeah sure. I'm a leader in a youth group in my home area and I do represent the voice of the youth.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
This was the day when I came across a beautiful waterfall while doing my physical recreation which is hiking. I couldn't resist to have a memory of this waterfall captured on a photo.
