Entrée Room – South East

Presenter – Holly Walsh, Comedian and Gold Award holder

Holly told the Gold Award holders: “Massive congratulations on getting your Gold Awards. It’s a huge achievement and one worth celebrating. Doing my DofE taught me how to apply myself. I learnt how to push myself in a very practical way. It shows there’s more to life than academic success and I’m sure that’s a big reason employers and universities value the DofE as it demonstrates you’re going to turn up and muck in. If you have a passion, keep at it, keep plugging away because that’s what I did and I’m so glad I put in the groundwork.”
