I wanted to become part of the award community for many reasons. The most important of them that I wanted to be able to divide my time between learning a new skill, practicing a sport and volunteering within having to study.For me that was a great challenge as I am terrible at managing my time. The award has helped me in that as I started to understand the importance of planning, setting a smart goal and risk assessment and management. This has been really beneficial for me as it helped in managing my time. I alsa wanted to get out my comfort zone to know new people and make friendships which in return will increase my communication skills.
