Nicole, 25, Baltimore, USA
“To cut a long story short, I am absolutely terrified of heights.
I thought that if I jumped out of a plane while I was in Israel it would get rid of my fear. Well yes, I was wrong. It didn’t and I think I made it worse.
I felt so numb during the descent that it didn’t hit me til afterwards what I’d done, and once I hit the ground I absolutely freaked out – which is weird because you usually freak out before the jump.
So when I was walking back from the runway it just hit me. In the video of me doing the jump I seem pretty calm, but once they stopped filming I was a complete mess.”
