All walks of life. One event. One mission.
I walked into Charles Ward building in Coventry University at 9am this morning, greeted by hundreds of faces. Young and old, from grandfathers to school children. Whites, Blacks, Asians and anything in between. Working adults, and students on holiday. You name it. I was amazed.
Excited! To think that all, or even if just some of them could be my new friends. And there's still the participants, coaches, team managers, delegates and loads of others who will be coming to the Games. Wow! :D
I am ready for the challenge, and the fun!
The day's training consisted of issues relating to Child Protection, a tour around the Games venues (mainly at Warwick University), and a general outline of the role of a Team Host. It is quite a bit of work, and as the facilitators put it, the information we were given were rather "overwhelming". The thought that crossed my mind was, "Whoa! This is big responsibility. I can't mess up." But it is true that we will be provided with sufficient support throughout. I guess, at the end of the day, what it comes down to mainly is to be confident to deal with anything and everything thrown at us at any times, with calm and a positive attitude.
I look forward very much to meeting, getting to know, and assisting my team, come this Wednesday, the 6th of July! :)
It has been a wonderful day. I think I made a new good friend today, from the training programme :)
And, what can be a better end to the day than to enjoy a yummy dinner over a funny movie with good, old friends, and cap it off with a few games of tetris! Thanx, pals!! hugS :))
