Sharing our speeches
So it’s the penultimate day of the expedition. This trip really has changed me not just as a person but on how I perceive everything!
Today we travelled back to Islamabad and continuously went over the speeches for the celebration this afternoon. When we got back to the hotel I had the longest and hottest shower which felt amazing. If you are ever going to spend a night in the mountains make sure you are prepared for a COLD night!
We then went to the Pakistan National Council of Arts for our final celebration where everyone who we'd met over the two weeks came and watched us as we gave our speeches. Giving the speech has actually made me realise just how much my perceptions of this country have changed. Now I feel inspired and motivated and want to change others’ perceptions.
Speaking to all the MP's and people after just made me realise that what we are doing is a really positive thing and if we all carry on working hard we really can make a change.
[Editor’s note: The celebration was attended by the UK Foreign Affairs Committee and the team had a chance to speak with the MPs about their experiences afterwards].
