Seize your Passion
Carpe diem, a Latin phrase for "Seize the Day" (活在當下) or defined as to live in the present moment, to put aside all differences and fears, and just go for it! And if I can describe the month of May in simple words, I call it as "Seize your Passion". Jayceettes, we truly went for it in May!
We started the month with the much anticipated JCI Hong Kong "2014 Nothing But Coffee", a one-of-a-kind campaign in support of Nothing But Nets of UN Foundation to fight against malaria. For almost a month and half, the project committee met every Sunday afternoon to plan this event. Not only am I just impressed with my organizing committee's determination, but most importantly, I was touched by how this project truly 'unite to impact' with a long list of businesses, community partners, members and public that donated to the cause.
Then we seize our day to make a one-of-a-kind chapter fundraising event title "Dream a Little Green", which we took life away from town and visited an organic farm. The event may looked as if it was just another fellowship gathering and fundraising, but the most special was the committee was comprised of five prospective members and this was their first project in Jayceettes!
Lastly, I have to admit, it is not easy to plan any projects of any scale; however, seize your opportunities, passion will make an impact wherever and whenever. Enjoy reading this eSnapshots with a very unique feature interview that truly tells you how to seize the day with slow living.
June is just hours away, and JCI Asia Pacific Area Conference (ASPAC Yamagata) just days away, so coming up, stayed tune as we seize our passion abroad.
