Good day Warrior Team
Duardu just finished his first Warrior Quest. It was also the longest he has been away from home. As parents we were a bit nervous as to how he will cope with this new adventure.
Through his school years we never thought that he will choose the “adventure road” as his future as he never showed any interest in the outdoor life and I must say when he start mentioning this career choice we were a bit sceptical.
He joined Warriors and from the first phone call we had, after the Toltec course, we have noticed a huge change in him, and that was just over the phone.
Then he came home on Friday. I just could not believe the change in attitude, his excitement and just all over positivity!!
We always knew Duardu had it in him to soar in life and for me as mother, the emotional side of any person is far more important than academics or being in “first” place.
We followed all your webisodes and one of the things we have noticed, besides every one having an absolute blast😜, is the way the team really carried the students with positive talk and constantly guiding them!
So the reason for this email is to say thank you! Thank you for the way you treated Duardu, thank you for guiding him, thank you for your positive input in his life this past 7 weeks.
I am sure there were more than a few difficult moments BUT (and it depends where you put your BUT) there were so many awesome moments!
There is truly not one negative comment from Duardu regarding this quest. When he talks about all the moments, hikes, ups, downs, the running, the people, the cycling, he relays it with a very wide smile that comes from within, and for that we will be forever grateful!
He cannot wait to return for the Spring Quest. And we as parents will let him go with pride and with the certainty that he is in the more than capable hands of an awesome team with a passion, that is very visible, for young people!
Good luck to you all
