Shauna Hogan (Fifth Year) wears the Gaisce Bronze MedalGaisce is the President’s Award. It is earned by young people in Ireland aged 15 and 25 for participating in several activities over a certain period. There are three awards: bronze, silver and gold.I had to participate in four key challenges. One was community involvement; it is all about making a difference to other people lives. The second one was a personal skill; this gives you the chance to develop a new skill or interest. The third was physical recreation; I went for an hour walk once a week with a group. The final one was the Adventure Journey; we went to Kilfinane and did a 26km hike and stayed for a night. It was very enjoyable.I am proud to wear my badge because I worked extremely hard to achieve it. It is also an internationally recognised award for young people!
