Ahmed talks about his experience as a Groundwork NCS participant.
"My favourite moment was definitely learning martial arts. Our teacher was a black belt and he taught us self-defence which I think is a really useful skill in the real world. Kayaking was also so much fun because while we were on the water, we were playing loads of different games with balls and rubber ducks.
I've met people from different areas of Sheffield who I didn't know before and now I would consider them as really good friends.
The thing I've learned about myself during NCS is that I can pull all-nighters and still be ready for breakfast in the morning! NCS is great for getting out of your comfort zone. It gets you doing something you'd never normally do".
