Anya meets Earl of Wessex
Anya, in Y12, spoke about her DofE experiences in front of the Earl of Wessex...
On the 22 March I attended the British Gas 10 Year Anniversary celebrating their partnership with DofE. I was invited to give a speech about my DofE experience and how I feel the skills I have learned will help me later on in life. When I first received the email I thought I would be speaking in front of British Gas employees and a couple of DofE representatives. In actual fact I had to present my speech in front of Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and 24 other highly influential people including The Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire! I had to give my speech during lunch where I was sitting opposite Prince Edward and all I could think about was trying not to spill water all over me! This was an extremely nerve racking experience, but one I will never forget and I am truly grateful for the opportunity.
