I first joined the award when I was in Senior High school and i am really proud of the person i am today. The skills I have developed, the impact I've made on so many people. To me, the Duke of Edinburgh Award was more than award - it was a platform where I could show my abilities, talents. I have developed self confidence. I have good experience in public speaking. With the help of the award, I gained so many skills. My best part of the award scheme was the adventurous journey where we all work together as a team to achieve a common goal and that is one of the greatest skill you can every get - teamwork. I'm very grateful to HRH Prince Philip and everyone at the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award.
