Finally, I received my two-weeks holiday to Asia until the 15th of October 2019. However, I realised that I also volunteered to join the OU Students Association at the Harrogate Graduation Ceremony on 12th October 2019. Nevertheless, I left Asia on the 10th of October 2019 and flew to Switzerland where I left my car. When I arrived on the 11th of October 2019 in Switzerland. There were no flights to England that will arrive early enough for me to be able to attend the Harrogate Graduation Ceremony. Therefore, I drove my car to Harrogate for twenty hours to be able to join the volunteering team at the Harrogate Graduation Ceremony.
When I arrived at the Harrogate Graduation Ceremony, I realised that I had food poisoning! I was very exhausted and felt so ill. However, when I saw all the graduates smiling, happy, and excited, I forgot about my illness and tiredness. It was a wonderful and exciting day. It made me feel so happy since I have met kind people and saw happy faces at the Harrogate Graduation Ceremony.
