Hear From NCS Graduate Samuel
Tell us about your experience on NCS
I think I had heard about NCS before, a few of my friends did it last year, but I didn’t really know much about it until they came to my school to do a presentation.
The first week, which was the activity week, I didn’t have to worry about meeting new people as everyone was so friendly and our team got on so well. We were given the opportunity to really challenge ourselves physically by doing a trek that included wild camping; rock face climbing and abseiling.
What was the best bit for you?
The best part was definitely living at University, cooking and doing media skills, it was a laugh but also in terms of what I want to do as a career and gaining experience in media.
Now I talk about NCS all the time. People at school always joke and ask me Sam did you go on NCS?” because they know I just don’t stop talking about it. I recommended it to all of my mates.
What have you been up to since NCS?
Since completing NCS, I have had a keen drive to do more adventures things outside of my comfort zone, complete more charitable deeds and run more ambitious campaigns.
As a result of this myself and my friend will be climbing the highest peak in England and Wales, Mount Snowdon, to raise money for a fantastic charity called Norwood.
Norwood dedicates all of its time and effort towards helping children and adults with learning disabilities. Whether it’s boys or girls, anybody of any race or religion who is in need of help, Norwood will be there to support them.
