I participated in the 19th world scout jamboree which was held in CHILE. That was the the first time i stepped in United States of America. 2 scouts from Maldives got the chance. I am one and the other guy was from EPSS. His name was THOHA ABOOBAKURU. The Scout Association had 5 scouts for the interview and among those 5 both of us got selected. And what suprised me was that i was the most junior one among the 5. I had only green cord while all other 4 scouts had junior or senior sash with bushman's thong. Among the 5 scouts 2 were from Majeediyya School, Me, and Ali Mubeen (younger brother of the politician Mr.Mahloof)
Well that was a cool and 100% FREE experience.
