Award Level:
Favourite memory of the Award:
My favourite memory must be when we had to cross a very muddy river and the majority of my group fell on or into the mud. It was very funny and very messy.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
The heat and the sun were for sure one of my biggest challenges as it was averaging 37°C whilst we walked for hours on end.
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yes, I have continued to cook at home couple days a week and continue to weight lift in the gym on a daily basis
Tell us the story behind your photo:
In this photo, it is the first day of the Silver AJ hike just after midday when the heat began to really affect us. I complained about the heat, and one of my group members threw water at me in order to “cool my body down”, and all my clothes got wet. It was a very funny moment and allowed my body temperature to also decrease by a bit, making the heat bearable.
