An Ambassador’s eye view of this year’s Shell Twilight Ambassador Residential.
This time last year I was sitting in the same room as the Ambassadors are right now, arriving at Kilgrastion to complete the ambassador training weekend.
But this year was different for me.
I came back, but for the mentoring role. I’m super excited to take on this role and see what opportunities this will give me.
I have to admit I was a little worried about going on the residential this year. The thought of taking on a more responsible role was scary, but if the Shell Twilight Basketball staff didn’t think I was ready for it they wouldn’t have asked me.
This weekend was a lot of fun as I had the opportunity to create more friendships with the other mentors and this year’s Ambassadors, and I managed to develop my own skills on this weekend more than what I thought I would. Looking back on last year, I never thought that I wold be doing something like this.
I honestly would say that it’s down to my own mentor from last year being a great role model for me and I hope to be just the same for my Ambassadors this year. I hope if I show my Ambassadors a good role model example they can then become a great role model for the other boys at our session.
