Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
The Expedition in the Donegal while guiding my group I had a leg injury and the place where we stayed overnight was too remote for any vehicle to assist. I still managed to make our goal being then assisted by the emergency and having the best memories from all the group and monitors support. And for sure on the Talent area the 9 months I´ve spend in one of the biggest newspapers in Portugal while still attending my university degree, provided me with one of the best and more complete professional experiences I´ve ever had.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
During the Medal Ceremony of the Prémio Infante D.Henrique I was stuck in traffic and my name was already mentioned to receive the award when I arrived. But I had then the unique chance to receive the award directly from Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex, on the terrace of the Belem Tower in Lisbon, with a little chat that still till to the day bring the best memories to me and my parents. this photo that still remains in the communication of the Award in Portugal and made it to many media, reminds me always of that unique moment when I made it to join that extraordinary group and be honoured defining in many ways my future achievements.
