Describe a profound experience and/or one that extended over several weeks. Give an example of when you reflected on any aspect of the experience. How did you change as a result of your reflection?

I once joined a outdoor camp in Canada and it was located near Waterloo. This two week program was an amazing experience, since I got to explore the wildness and meet new people. However, during my stay at the camp site, my opinion was completely difference. It all started when we entered the campsite, and realised it was very very different from Hong Kong. First, we had to shower in the lake, because there was no running water. Second of all, the food was mostly different. Lastly, I felt left out due to being the only Non-Canadian Camper.

However, after talking to my parents over the phone and reflecting about the experience. I started to like the program more and more, since it could potentially be a once in a lifetime memory. Therefore, I tried to be a little more brave and open minded to new activities. Allowing me to experience the bog jump, 5 meter driving board and sailing  smaller version of the catamaran boat.

The global issue I will engage with is sustainability. Every year in the Venturer and Scout Group program, we always visit the sandy bay beach near the Hong Kong University, Stanley Ho sport ground and help pick up all the garbage we see stuck on the shore line.  All these trips started when we realised that there are many beaches in Hong Kong that are not frequently cleaned by the government. Thus, we started to plan a trips to that beach at least once a year. After preparing all the necessary equipment for the beach clean up (e.g. gloves, garbage bags), we starting to pick up trash for 2 hours and 30 mins. We thought the trip was very successful, but then we realised that majority of the trash could have been recycled. Hence, by reflecting on our beach clean up trip, we were able to make an bigger positive impact towards our environment during the second time we helped clean up.
