Perfect Timing

Sometimes I have perfect timing. Arriving on the sky train platform just as the train arrives, bumping into someone in a strange and random place, JUST catching the bus… I could go on.

Yesterday I experienced amazing timing. I was on my way to the final awards presentation for the Global Agents Micro Credit Challenge, an event which I have been promoting extensively as part of my LEAD program team project. They had asked me to make a video/slideshow compilation of the project so as I took the sky train to the Global Agents HQ I edited some photos and videos together. My laptop battery was at 20% so I tried to be really efficient. I finished the project and then exported the final video with 8% battery remaining. I had my fingers crossed as I exported the video. With 1% battery remaining I transferred the video to my flash drive, ejected the flash drive and closed my laptop to avoid losing everything I had open. *phewf* OH, and this all happened just as I arrived at my sky train stop! As I was walking to the awards presentation I bumped into my friends Diana and Justin from IATSU! They had just come from a conference our Faculty put on (which I missed out on but wanted to attend). Perfect! I arrived at the awards event on time and really enjoyed seeing all of the creative ideas the teams came up with.  Check out all the photos from the event here!

now… GO HAVE YOURSELF AN ADVENTURE : )

THE GLOBAL AGENTS MICROCREDIT CHALLENGE:

The microcredit challenge is simple: your team has one week, $100 and only the limits of its own creativity to create as much social change and raise as much money as possible.

The Microcredit Challenge is a one week competition where Global Agents funds competing teams of 2-5 members with $100 “microloans”. Teams have one week to use their entrepreneurial skills to raise as much money and create as much social change as possible using only this original loan.

At the end of the week the loan and proceeds are paid back to The Global Agents Catalyst Initiative, which are funds used to help developing world entrepreneurs pull themselves and their families out of poverty.

I worked on the blog, poster and these videos. Check it out!

DEADLINE TO REGISTER MARCH 4TH! Pretty much anyone can participate! DOOO IT!
