After the two successful Campus Tours Jean and I did, we immediately think of another event for follow up for the students who attended the Campus Tours, Spearheaded by Jean he set the date and the venue. The date was March 24, 2012 and our Venue is at Nuvali Sta. Rosa Laguna at Starbucks. Jean Confirmed that there would be 7 students that would come from Pamantasan ng Cabuyao and I said that I would have 4 students coming from Letran-Calamba.
Jean and I are both excited for this event, As the days passed by the students from Pamantasan ng Cabuyao is settled and for the Letran-Calamba Team the students went down to 2 reps, the other 2 students has school works needed to be done immediately. The time that the meet-up would start is around 1am, Jean already headed to Nuvali to reserved seats for us, While me and the 2 students namely Jyra and Joanna left Letran at 12pm and arrived around 1:30pm at Nuvali.
We sat down and had a little chat, and ordered our drinks, the heat outside was so intense that even inside the coffee shop it was a little bit of hot. The students of PNC arrived around 2pm, we told them rest first and relax and also order their desired drinks.and so we started, Jean led it by giving a recap about what was been talked about on their Campus Tours and I barge myself when there is more explanation needed, generally we talked about what was being a student reps would be, we also planned about future events, ideas for the engagement team, shared tips for students, career and business.
(Joanna and Jyra was tasked to do the minutes of the meet up, THANKS GIRLS!)
Then the heavy rain started to fall and the coffee shop atmosphere became cold. And yes! part of our Meet-up was the brainstorming activity which we share ideas for our favorite browser, and how they would contribute to the community, the students identified what they want to share to the community, everyone wanted to be in the Engagement Team(YEAH!!) -there are developers,graphic artist and for advocacy. I also shared to the students the experiences I received being a Student Reps to becoming a ReMo. Question that were asked was about the benefits of being a student Rep.
We talked a lot and didn’t notice the time, it was already about 5pm, we waited for a while for the rain to stop but it just keeps on pouring on and on. Fortunately there was a 7-eleven store near by and grabbed some umbrella and off we go, We we headed out the streets to get a ride, we rode a tricycle and was dropped at Paseo de Sta.Rosa. The team thought we could all go home, unfortunately we can’t, Heavy traffic caused by flood, Heavy Rain and Zero Visibility. Ahh! by the way! Jean took a photo of us during that night in the rain with his handy dandy Samsung Galaxy Note
So we decided to eat at the home of the Firefox pizza the Big 30’s, but before we arrived there, Jean met his High school friends and they chat for a little while and went to the Pizza parlor. unfortunately we can’t order the pizza. The pizza is so special we need to order it atleast a day before.Every one had fun, extended our networks and even had a a full belly!
That day was so awesome and one thing is for sure. This is just the beginning of a wonderful adventure for our community! Rock On Mozilla Philippines Community!
