What an incredible 6 weeks. You can only prepare so much for an experience like this and you never really know what to expect. I remember being so mentally and physically drained by the end of it but I’m so glad that my hard work and perseverance pulled through. It was one of the most challenging experiences of my life and one that I will never forget. ??? (oh and disclaimer.. the dress was provided..)
