Award Level:
Favourite memory of the Award:
There are too many! I particularly enjoyed the late night conversations with my group where we bonded over shared experiences, told jokes and stories and discussed our dreams and aspirations.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
Developing the motivation associated with endurance-based activities (such as the hiking or kayaking). However, I feel that doing the Award with friends (made during the hikes and prior) made it easier because we motivated and pushed each other further, and this got easier witch each hike.
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yes - I am continuing all 3 activities; basketball, umpiring (netball) and surf lifesaving.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
We had just finished packing our kayaks (which was a lot easier than our Practice Journey) and we were ready to set off on what, possibly, was our last journey together as a group (as some people weren't doing Gold).
