Nicole speaks about her Groundwork NCS experience.
"I heard about NCS after I was an advert on Facebook and my friend had also done it earlier this year and had really enjoyed it so I decided to sign up.
The best part of NCS has been getting to know my current friends even better and also getting to know new people too. My favourite part was definitely the water sports. I even jumped into the freezing lake, which was so much fun!
NCS will look great on my personal statement for university and I really wanted to work on my leadership skills. I'm looking forward to the social action project because I'll be able to get involved with the community.
I would recommend NCS to other people my age. It's a great opportunity to add something to your CV and have a nice time in the process!"
