Favourite memory of the Award:
Last week, I was entaming my gold training expedition in the South-East coast of Mauritius. On the second day, we departed from La Cambuse Public Beach towards Le Bouchon Public Beach. One of the participant from my team started to have some leg cramps after 30 minutes of walking. Everybody stopped to help her sit down to do some stretching and she was finally fine again to continue after a good 5 minutes. This was really nice of everybody to cater and care for someone in difficulty and it give us all a sense of belongingness to the Award family!
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
The biggest challenge that I had to face during my Bronze and Silver level is the time that I had to make to do all the award activities/sections, especially in today's fast-paced world. I remember on Saturdays going to tuitions during examination period and in the evening I had to go and help in giving hotmeals to Homeless people in the streets of Port-Louis. Though it was tough, it felt rewarding!
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yes, I still help to distribute hotmeals and clothes to the homeless people as I did for my Voluntary Service.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
It was during an expedition in the South of Mauritius. After an exhausting day of walking under the scorching sun, we decided to cook and bath in rotation amongst participant. I helped to set the grill, light on the coal and grilled the chicken strips. Then, my friends told me to go and take a bath. When I returned , a real feast presented in front of me; chicken fillet burger, pita bread with cheese and tomato sauce and coleslaw mix salad. It is an extremely good feeling when you do something with your own hand. Team work makes the dream work!
