Q: What was your worst Duke of Ed moment that you now look back on and laugh?
worst Duke of Ed moment was the first time I went winter camping/ spring hike
for my adventurous journey (Bronze). I didn’t bring enough warm clothes, which
led to me being so cold I couldn’t sleep half the time in my tent. For my
silver I did the same adventurous journey and brought much warmer clothes, but
it turns out that they were not effective in keeping me warm at night because
it turned out to be much colder than it was on my bronze trip. I laugh at this
because I learned from my mistake but still ended up being cold during the
duration of my trip, but I pushed my way through it. We also had to make our
way back to the cabins because it got way too cold to stay there for the last
night and our whole group agreed to leave. I also find this funny because who
knows what could’ve happened if we stayed there during the last night in the
cold for my silver adventurous journey.
Q: What do you hope to accomplish in your term as a Duke Delegate?
hope to meet other Duke of Ed participants in Manitoba and the other Duke
Delegates across Canada. I also hope to inspire others to achieve the award and
encourage them to reach the gold level. I also hope that my Duke of Ed story
will inspire others and help them learn about this life changing award.
Q: What do you think of the qualities of a great Leader what comes to mind? What
does Leadership mean to you?
I think of the qualities of a great leader, I think of authenticity.
Authenticity is a quality of a great leader because if people don’t know the
real you, how will people trust to follow you and learn from you? Some other
qualities I associate with being a great leader is open mindedness, positivity,
inspiring, courageous, a team player, and someone who is focused.
to me means leading someone or a group of people towards a shared success.
Everything a leader does is to benefit the whole group and by doing this,
anyone can be a leader.
Q: What excites you about being a Duke Delegate?
excited about meeting other Duke of Ed participants and learning their stories
and interests. I also look forward to promoting the award via social media. I’m
also excited to meet all the other Duke Delegates from all the other provinces
and work with them to encourage the award in Canada. I also look forward to
working with the Manitoba division of Duke of Ed.
Q: Can you give us one interesting fact about yourself?
enjoy working on Photoshop to create artwork that is unique and pertains to my
interests (such as tv shows and bands and even just making art in
also have an interest working on a tv set doing set design, directing, script
writing, producing and many others.
