Growing up Priteni was never sporty or particularly active, she liked being indoors as much as she liked being outdoors. It was not until sixth form that she did anything really adventurous and even now she thinks she only decided to do the Gold DOE Award because her friends were.
That experience, till this day, is one of her most precious memories and turning points in her life, when she looks back at it now she realises it was a catalyst, it showed her she had some wild in her and that it needed to be nurtured.
A year later she planned a trip with her friend to South East Asia and Japan. However it was not that big adventure that showed brought out her wild pursuit, it was DOE, walking across Dartmoor with map in hand and her existence on my back that gave her the courage and the confidence to feel she could achieve things and she has not looked back since. She now thrives on planning adventures whether it be sleeping out under the stars or dreaming of cycling to Australia to see friends.
Priteni talks to World Extreme Medicine host Jennie Sherman about supporting Bex Band and her adventure across the UK which was completed in August. You can find out more about it here https://www.loveherwild.com/about/
