As I sit here counting down the days until the big day of departure, I am both eager and excited for all the new people and challenges ahead of me. However, I also sit here full of fear for the unknown that I will be soon to face.
What a befitting name for a young, ambitious female, beginning to take the first steps on her journey of adulthood.
I’m excited to go to Outward Bound because it will give me the opportunity to explore the world out of Auckland and beyond school; I will be better equipped to influence positive social change when I get back because I will have the skills, experience and motivation to volunteer more to improve society’s obstacles to better living conditions for all.
I cannot wait to go to Outward Bound! I’m so excited to make new friends, really challenge myself and find a new mindset. I think this will be a great refresher to get me through my last year of high school and maybe even help me find something I want to do with my future.
