    Positive and smiley, finds herself an energetic, curious and alert young person, in constant search of new experiences and adventures. Perhaps this is exactly why she was “introduced” to the Award in the first place and why the program became such an important part of her high school years. She sees her Award as the last day of her “old” life.
    Today she lives and studies in the UK. “The Award builds useful and necessary qualities in anyone who takes it on. The most valuable thing for myself was perseverance. As a curious person, I always wanted to try new things, but quite often left these new passions unfinished. The Award, however, motivated me to set goals to strive for and not give up until the end. In fact, through it I realized how good it feels and the sense of satisfaction one feels when they finish what they started. Three years later, I am still taking on many different things, but now I am persistent and see everything through to the end,” Rumi says of her experience with the Award.
