Tell us the story behind your photo:
This photo probably represents the greatest achievement not only in the DofE program but also in life. When I found out that I was really going on a 4-day hike in the Pyrenees, I imagined the hike to be completely different than it actually was - more difficult both physically and emotionally. The pictures that you see look easy and fun to others, but actually, personally, I struggle there. There were tears, there were scoldings and fears, fears of heights that I had to overcome and climb over. Those 4 days were probably the hardest days of my life, it would not be possible to convey it through pictures, it can only be experienced. This photo will show you, the team that had an adventure and saw great views, but it will not convey our hardship during this trip.
