Corporal Jenson Smith – ACF Berkshire
With an interest in joining the Army, Jenson was looking to gain more experience and knowledge by joining the cadets.
Jenson said: “My confidence in leading has improved and my discipline has gotten much better. The best experience so far, was the exchange program to Norway. We trained with the Norwegian Home Guard, learning how to ski and how to survive in winter conditions.”
Lance Corporal Saranya Thillainadarajah – ACF Berkshire
Saranya was looking to be pushed out of her comfort zone and found the cadets offered more than any of the other clubs.
Saranya said: “ I found that the first aid skills helped me so much in my civilian life but also many other skills. Learning patience and good personal admin, have helped shape me into a better person. One of the best experiences was overcoming my fear of heights on the obstacle course.”
