After a few months of hard work, interviews, and racking my head to come up with fresh ideas from which to approach the many tasks that we were given, I've made it to the Top 16 of the Your Big Year competition.
As I type this, I'm in Doha waiting for a transfer to London, where I'll be meeting the organisers of this global competition, and the other 15 driven, ambitious individuals whom I'll be competing against. Exciting times ahead!
As I embark on what will be an exciting two weeks ahead, I'd like to take some time to say a huge Thank You to everyone who has supported me along the way. Without your votes, support and faith in me, and help in pulling together videos and organising CultureRun's Big Idea, I would never have made it this far.
So, Thank You. This trip's not just for my country but for those nearest and dearest to me. The ones who've seen me at my worst, yet still believe in the best of me. The ones who've seen how far I've come and know that this journey's a testament to the amazing ride that can take place for every single one of us when we step out of our comfort zones, stop limiting ourselves, and fly as far as life will take us. This trip is for you. Regardless of whether I return a winner, this journey is already an achievement in itself, and I don't regret a single bit of it. :)
Wish me luck / send me your prayers / good thoughts / whatever you want to call it in Liverpool!
