Going to Buckingham Palace was a dream come true!
Going to Buckingham Palace was a dream come true.
After such an amazing DofE experience the palace was a time to get together with fellow participants to celebrate our success. The gardens were beautiful, blooming with flowers with the sun shining down on us.
We got to meet The Duke of Gloucester who spoke to us about our experiences. However we didn’t get the opportunity to tell him how we got interviewed on our expedition which got published online.
Colin Jackson gave us a really motivational speech about how he never gave up, how he met his hero and how he reached his goal of getting his name shouted at an event by breaking the world record while winning his race. He made the event so memorable.
This trip was definitely one to remember as we got to share our success with some of the best role models around. The experience has given me motivation to continue to challenge myself to become a better me and to never give up no matter how hard things get.
