Blog post following an Outward Bound experience by Halberg Youth Council member Kiran Dixon:

Outward bound had always been something that I wanted to do, especially after one of my friends went on the course and has the time of his life. I had always wondered what it would be like to participate in the course. I was given this opportunity by the Halberg Foundation to go on the course in 2015. For me, I found that while the course was physically challenging, it also challenged my perception of what I was capable of, and broke down those mental barriers. While at Outward Bound, I summed up what I wanted to achieve during the week into a statement “Break the stereotype and push the limit” but recently, I realised that I have been living by this statement since. The Halberg - Outward bound partnership itself embodies this idea, showing the world that people with disabilities don’t have to be part of a negative stereotype. Outward Bound really is a once in a lifetime opportunity, just the fact that so many people are willing to put so much effort into the course so that a young person with physical disability can be included, makes it worthwhile. However, also engaging with the beautiful Queen Charlotte sound, a pristine environment opens your eyes to how amazing New Zealand’s natural environment is. Couple this with physical challenges, the course allows a deeper understanding of who you are.
