My Reflection on completing Gold Award
My Award Journey had taught me a lot, and I would like to reflect how the different sections has taught me and how it has changed me as a person.
I took powerlifting as my physical recreation; the activity presented unique challenges and full filing them was really rewarding. Powerlifting helped me grow not only physically but mentally as well; it taught me with time and effort anything is possible.
For social service section of the award I volunteered in a government children’s hospital. I worked for an Foundation called Social Action Volunteers (SAV) which helps underprivileged children get proper health care and checkup. With the help of my friend I managed to organize a fundraiser and raise Rs. 60,000 for SAV. Helping people and seeing them happy gave me a different scene of satisfaction and I will never forget this unforgettable opportunity to touch the lives of so many people.
For physical recreation I took Mixed Martial Arts, through this activity I have learned to protect myself. One of the great things about MMA is you can use the skills that I have learned in my daily life. MMA taught me the skills to protect myself and helped me push my limits. MMA tought me that life is a constant battle from your first breath to your last. MMA has made me a better person physically as well as mentally.
For the adventurous journey we went to Langtang, the oldest and most beautiful trek routes in Nepal. The view was heavenly and so enjoyable. We not only say the beauty of nature but this destructive nature as well; the route was covered with stones, rocks and rubbles still evident as a reminder of the 2015 earthquake. I got a chance to step out of my comfort one and visit a local old man who had lost everything in the earthquake; me along with my friends had a chance to talk to him and hear his story. This truly was a humbling experience and this moment really helped me grow as a person and see how lucky I was for having what I have and not take it for granted.
