    Being active and involved in various activities is my idea of living. DofE supports that and that is the main reason why I decided to take part in completing the Award. I would not be able to live happily without sport, meeting new people and trying out new stuff. DofE allows me to keep track of what I do and enjoy it even more when being awarded.

    I joined the DofE Award in my final year at the gymnasium. I was attracted by the possibility to gain new skills and experiences, get to know new people and take part in projects abroad. Pursuing the programme sections was easy for me as I chose activities I was interested in and I enjoyed them very much.

    I seek challenge. I need to constantly do something new and something different. And so when I have heard about the DofE Award, I knew that it was an activity that I needed to try. It required full commitment for over a year. I had to be physically and mentally ready to a four day hike and to top it all up, it was necessary for me to do a residential project on my own. The moment I heard the announcement about application, I was in.

    I love travelling and getting to know other cultures which is something I could do in the programme. Thanks to DofE Award I travelled to Russia as well as South African Republic. At the beginning it was hard for me to orientate myself in unfamiliar environment and start communicating with someone I've just met. But we all felt like this which created an unforgettable atmosphere that brought us all together in the end. In such moments inseparable friendships were born.

    I started the DofE Award because I was drawn to the challenge of hiking and camping. I knew that the expedition would be a lot of fun especially because I would be in a group with my friends. Besides the expedition I was excited by the idea of doing new activities such as playing the piano. I knew the DofE Award would be a challenge to finish which made me want to do it all the more.
