Chopin beats & droppin Brahms.

The upside about time is that there is always something to look forward to. Its downside is that once something happens, you can never gain it back. You can only relive it through the memories that you have gained, the lessons you have learned, and the facebook pictures you were tagged in.

I relive the awesomeness of yesterday in my head every chance I get. The vibe, the energy, the inspiration, even the anxiety. The fact that that was SCPASA’s third Summit astounded me. I can’t wait to see what great things will mobilize in the near future.

When you gather a group of people together united for a cause, you can sense the energy of passion, strength, and connectedness.

However, when you gather a group of people united for many causes, many with varying opinions, and beliefs, but are together for the sake of creating a platform, a common ground, and open space to create new things, new opportunities for EVERYONE to succeed…

that feeling is indescribable.

22 schools, hundreds of people, 1 day.

I had the honor of being part of such a cause–SCPASA Summit 2010. And I was truly humbled by all its attendees, vendors, sponsors, speakers, facilitators, FUNcilitators, and volunteers. It felt as if the soul of the conference perpetuated through the USC Campus.. filled with young, ambitious, fiery individuals.. anxious to make a difference, to inspire, yet be open to new ideas..

As much as I value independence, I value more the spirit of teamwork, and what great things can be achieved by respect and understanding.

It gives me great pride to realize that I took part in this experience. The entire day my cheeks hurt so bad from smiling, all the positive vibes kept us all energetic and chipper throughout the day. And after all the stress, planning, and all the things that could have gone wrong.. and DID go wrong.. it’s amazing how it all comes back together at the end of the day.

If you are reading this, and you weren’t able to go to Summit, you missed out on a great event. But you didn’t miss out on EVERYthing. Every single person who attended was able to bring back a new “lesson” to place inside of their metaphorical Balikbayan box, to use and share with their community.

Ask almost anyone in attendance and they’ll say they’ve learned something new.

And it is through events like these that we are able to truly see the talents of our peers,

and the fruits of our success.

Collaborate, converse, communicate, CONTINUE TO INSPIRE.
Rejoice in the little victories! & be the change you want to see in the world! (Gandhi said that)

SCPASA.. you did me proud. (:
