Can't believe I am writing my sixth president message to you all, and this half year mark is definitely not easy to capture in a few hundred words.
In June, Jayceettes' passionate journey started with international affairs (IA) as we visited our sisterhood pact JCI Yokohama and joined JCI ASPAC Yamagata. IA has always been my favorite area of all because of the interaction with different cultures and people. We were so grateful for JCI Yokohama's kind hospitality, and to participate in the Yokohama Port Festival was an unforgettable experience.
My third time to join ASPAC and this time, and once again, it was thrilling to attend the different meetings, trainings and parties. We are also proud to have our Prospective Member Flora Zhang to participate as part of the JCI Hong Kong team in the debating championship. More importantly, we got to meet with our other sister and friendship pacts to share our latest happenings and invite them to the 45th Anniversary.
Sapphire is the symbol and stone for the 45th anniversary. It is also known to represent truth and loyalty, as well as devotion and faithfulness, which we showcased in June at Long-Year Service Appreciation cum June Fellowship Gathering. A very high-energy evening to sincerely thank all members for their long service over the past 45 years. Truly, many events would not have happened without the strong foundation from our past presidents, senators and senior members. We also have to give a round of applause to the new prospective/new members (also known as "45th newbies") that decide to join us to take their passionate journey together. Last but not the least, we are most pleased to have our friendship pact JCI Entrepreneur Metropolitan (Penang. Malaysia) to join us for this special event and had a fruitful dialogue session the following day to discuss future collaboration.
Enjoy reading this Sapphire blue edition of eSnapshots and let us get very ready for our 45th Anniversary in October!
