Favourite memory of the Award:
This was when the Vice President of Nigeria hosted us at the presidential villa for the Gold Award Ceremony and was opportune to give a speech, it was indeed one of the most remarkable moments of my life.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
That was the physical recreation which is not much of a challenge anymore, because it keeps me mentally and physically fit, but also entails a lot of discipline, focus, and determination.
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yes, as alumni, I volunteer in helping other awardees on their adventures journey and educate them on how the award framework helps bring out their potential and leadership skills, which enables them to find their place in the world.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
My Award photo story, tells a remarkable, challenging, and happy experience I had during the Gold Adventures Journey On 28th February 2021.It was an expedition mixed exploration Journey, a 3.6-kilometer walk from the start-up location to end at the waterfall, we were split into four (4) groups, each with their first aid kit, Compass, and a Map, and the groups were asked to choose their leader, navigator and first aid, my group chose me as the leader, I was excited and honoured about the confidence they all had in choosing me to lead.So the journey started, and all groups got moving following the route they picked, but my group had a major challenge, one of our group member wasn't feeling to well, her temperature was really high, we had to wait to address it, while others got a ahead of us, the group was concerned about her health, we adviced she stayed back but she insteaded on participating despite not feeling well, so the first aid administered panadol to her help ease the temperature, and we all decided she stay close to the first aid we got started with our journey, we bonded and had fun, we worked as a team, having every member of our group actively involved in, map reading, expedition data and analysis, etc. with accurate map, compass reading and help from goodwill city occupant, we arrived at the entrance of the waterfall, we couldn't see any group, so we taught they are already at the waterfall, unknown to us that we were the first to get there, so we decided to call some of our friends in other groups and was told they were still on their way, we were so excited we couldn't believe it, The award coordinator congratulated us for arriving first, and told us coordinate the other groups into the waterfall. Anytime I look at this photo, it reminds me of a fun filled, exciting, great teamwork, bonding adventure.Yours truly,Kennedy Kris Ubani
