Georgia O’Keeffe once said ‘I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing that I wanted to do’ a phrase which can apply to anyone at a Jamboree. An event like this can be useful for a person to overcome a fear of something and this is what happened for Seth at ‘Up and Under’. Seth was scared of heights and it took a lot of convincing but he managed to complete both the abseiling and the climbing run by BAT. When I asked him about it he said ‘I was scared, I felt the fear but I am still here, and I now have the confidence that I would try it again’, His St Albans leader Ant was impressed and pleased that ‘he gave it a go’. So all you ‘keeffey’s’ out there go and challenge yourselves in your last few days at EIJ!
