Duke Delegate Madison – Prince Edward Island

Q: What level of the Award are you currently working on?
A: I am currently working on my Gold Award

Q: What activities do you do for each section of your Award?
A; For my skill I cook and play the violin. For community service I volunteer at pediatrics in the hospital, coach girls softball, and I work at my school’s breakfast program. For physical activity I normally do lots of softball training but I recently injured my shoulder so I do workouts at home, and I would like to start some yoga classes. 

Q: What was your worst Duke of Ed moment that you now look back on and laugh?
A: My worst Duke Of Ed moment was definitely when I snowshoed during a blizzard for my silver adventurous journey. At the time it wasn’t fun at all, but now we have lots of stories and pictures to look back and laugh at. 

Q: What do you hope to accomplish in your term as a Duke Delegate?
A: As a Duke Delegate I hope to inspire more people to complete the award. Here in PEI we have lots of people that do their bronze but they don’t try to go any further. I hope to show people how the Award helps you in all aspects if your life. Some qualities of a great leader are responsible, respectful, motivated, and empathetic. 

Q: What do you think of the qualities of a great Leader what comes to mind? 
A: For me leadership is all about leading by example. If you are able to inspire people by your actions instead of bossing them around, they will respect you, and be more excited to help. 

Q: What excites you about being a Duke Delegate?
A: I am most excited to share ideas with the other Delegates across Canada to make Duke better for young people in every province. 

Q: Can you give us one interesting fact about yourself?
A: An interesting fact about me is that I have been involved with sports since I was 4 years old.
