Favourite memory of the Award:
My favourite memory from the Award was definitely collaborating with some of my other friends doing the Award and doing a 3 day tramp around lake waikaremoana. That trip expanded my boundaries of independence and allowed me to experience some special memories with my friends. we kept ourselves entertained with swimming and cards and even more exploring and despite the weather not being too great i loved every moment.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
The biggest challenge from my Award came from my residential project, I attended a 10 day voyage on the spirit of New Zealand Sailing ship. this was challenging due to knowing no one else on the boat with you as well as taking charge of the entire boat with these people during the trip. I came out of the voyage with many blisters and rope burn from hauling on the sails but also a more flexible mindset toward a challenge.
