Favourite memory of the Award:
My favourite memory was on the adventurous journey when we prepared our breakfast with our group mates. Seeing all of us get together was a wonderful experience and we got to eat lots of delicious food afterwards that we had prepared! In particular, my group had prepared fresh fruits such as sliced oranges, strawberries and grapes which were vibrant on our plates. We also had tuna sandwiches and cereal drinks! I remember another group had made pancakes and another made baked beans! It really was a fun experience getting to know everyone while preparing breakfast.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
The biggest challenge I faced was probably doing most of my activities during lockdown, it was hard to meet up with assessors and buy materials needed for my activities. However, it worked out and I tried my best to communicate through the difficulties we face today due to the virus. Staying safe and trying our best!

Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
I continue to play badminton at my school and enjoy it very much. I believe that due to me choosing badminton as my physical activity, I have improved greatly in my skills and I also want to try out for the badminton squad at my school.

During our travel for the Adventurous Journey component, many trees could be seen from our van and this one photo was very eye-catching! A lone tree standing tall with an array of trees in the background.
