When I first started doing Duke of Edinburgh (DOE) I didn’t think it would amount to much. Never have I been that wrong… From the Bronze expedition all the way to the Gold Expedition I have memories that will remain with me forever. Just recently, the Gold has taught me several new survival skills and I will never forget our continued encounters with cows on the Gredos forest. If I can come to any conclusions from this experience, it is that I am looking forward to camping and hiking with my friends and family. The DOE has given me some of the best moments in my academic and recreational life.
