Learn to know, Learn to do, Learn to be, Learn to live together
Comment from Erin:
Throughout my year 12 school year, I found that completing the award was a very easy and pleasant task. I enjoyed taking part in community service, academics, athletics and any other key factor of the award. By the end of the year I was able to interview for my certificate and realized that I had participated in a lot of activities under each aspect. All in all it was a very enjoyable experience.
Erin is also the Pillar Leader for Adventure in her current school and works hard to ensure that students and teachers are regularly challenged to go out of their comfort zone physically and mentally as part of their personal growth and learning process. Erin was also nominated for the Brittany Tang Award for outstanding global citizenship and won the award last year, largely due to her commitment to service learning and community partnerships, particularly with the Pattaya Mercy Centre.
Congratulations Erin on being an amazing Global Citizen. We look forward to hearing about your progress and achievements in becoming a Global Mentor.
