Recently I was given a once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel across seas and create unforgettable memories with unique individuals in Morocco. Some people may think my team and I went on a fun holiday under the sun, but in reality this was a challenge: a challenge of strength, responsibility and teamwork. When I joined up to visit Morocco I believed I would gradually pay off the bill, but I found out that I needed to work before I even went on the trip. I had to fundraise the full amount of money independently. This shock made me determined to complete the task so I could achieve my target.
When we first landed, the students needed to take control of the situation and find the correct transport to get to the right accommodation. Therefore, we needed to be responsible and organise our team so no mistakes were made. Throughout the trek we needed to turn this group of individuals into a team so we worked together and helped anyone who needed aid. Out there, we pushed our boundaries, learnt many new skills and accomplished achievements that we thought were unimaginable. It was certainly an unforgettable experience!
