Hello, my name is Sidharth, though many people call me Sid! I’ve been coming to Northbourne since September 2015, in order to do my Duke of Edinburgh award. I am currently 16 years old and in Year 11.
I’m currently working towards my Silver award with the DoFE, with cooking having been my skill, and karate having been my physical. I hope to use blog writing for Northbourne to fulfill the volunteering component.
Being a relatively shy and reserved person, I often struggle to talk to new people. Northbourne has helped me to expand my friendship circles and become better at communicating with people. Thanks to Northbourne, I have also been pushed to do activities that I normally would be too afraid to do, like the high-rope fun at GoApe; and other adrenaline pumping activities like go-karting. Without a doubt, Northbourne is an extremely welcoming youth club that will certainly reveal a side that you never thought you had.
The volunteering component is all about using one’s personal skills and talents to help a community. I hope that my skills in writing will encourage and inform more people about the activities Northbourne has to provide. Every volunteering job is also a learning experience, so I hope to improve my writing skills.
I know Northbourne will continue to provide great activities, so stay tuned to see what happens next!
