Award Level:
Favourite memory of the Award:
I remember vividly the day I stood up and got the confidence to speak in a crowd due to the things I had learned during my skill of public speaking. The first time people clapped for me, appreciated me and made me feel like I can do anything.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
The biggest challenge from doing the Award was getting my family to understand why I was taking part in the activities in each section, especially the Adventurous Journey section.
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yes, I have continued to offer services at the library and to serve as a leader in different spaces. I have also continued with my skill of mat making and is now a means of earning extra income. I have a routine for exercising which allows me to stay fit and healthy.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
To go out and adventure is to loose oneself but more to find oneself. The smiles and happy memories that I hold from the expedition are beyond words.
