    China | My Happiest Working Day!!!

    Today is four months and ten days since I arrived to China.

    From my perspective my responsibility was very clear:

    Get the Local Committees involved in projects (create teams, plan and execute) that generate exchange and learning around Sustainable Development topics using the external platform left by the last term.

    I found many challenges that I don't even want to remember right now.

    But I found a team willing to do crazy stuff: Dex, Natalie, Dan, Birtan, Susan, Yuan, Nick. And also two great CEEDers: Lucy and Regula.

    Today I was reviewing the survey where LCs were supposed to commit to run topic based projects...

    Honestly, I was not even expecting answers since it is hard for LCs to access due to Government restrictions at Uni to external servers...

    My surprize:

    • 7 LCs interested!!!
    • 12 Projects with responsible assigned!!!

    Besides that:

    • 2 Project Managers applying for Heroes Conference Grant in Malaysia!!!
    I am so happy!

    China | RIC Beijing

    Beijing and Shanghai are so different.

    At least, that is my conclusion after the Induction period.

    I believe that Shanghai people are more exposed to Western cultures.

    So, while in Shangahi it is easier to communicate, in Beijing you find more traditional chinese behaviors.

    "In the similarities we come together
    and in the differences... we grow!"

    China is amazing!

    I wonder what will come in the next quarte of my term...

    IC | Faci Life

    How does it feel to be in IC?

    How does it feel to be a Faci in your first IC?


    Imagine that one day you wake up and you are standing in the middle of the Santiago Bernabeu, the ball is at your feet, there is noise all around and you only see the flashes left behind by your teammates and contraries when they passed you by...

    And you are thinking:

    "I have to do it right, I have to do it right, I have to do it right... BUT... what should I do?!?!?!?"

    And all of a sudden, one of the flashes next to you make sense and you just feel like leting the ball flow, with no reason, just instinct...

    That's how I felt.

    Part of something much bigger than me, so big that nobody was above or below it, so big that it makes sense only by itself.

    When I read the application, I realized I had a few chances, mostly because I had a delegate profile.

    But I really wanted to be there.

    I decided that If I was not going to be selected, it will others decision, not mine.

    I have some of the best memories from IC, those memories that keep a person going in the tough moments.

    The memories I will tell my grandchildren.

    Future | Entrepreneurial or Corporate life

    Every year the time to make decisions comes.

    And every year, the decisions become more impactful in our lifes.

    I have been thinking about my future for sometime now.

    And I find myself in a junction: Entrepreneurial or Corporate life.

    Why is this importan right now?

    Well, the entrepreneurial life find no better ground than China and the Corporate is a bit more flexible.

    Whatever decision I make for next year has to reflect my final thoughts about this dilema...

    The price of opportunities :)

    This month I will be meeting Costa Rican business people from the China Ya Program. I guess the outcome of this meeting may help to concrete to which side the balance is.

    China | X-treme feelings

    During the last days I notice that my mood is becoming extreme.

    At some moments things are great and all of a sudden things turn and seem bad.

    In Gabiza's words, things are black or white, very moody.

    It is the hard period of the adaptation process but it is also one of the best in terms of learning. I am questioning somethings I thought I deeply believe. I reviewing my "escala de valores".

    Besides the moody moment, thing seem stable.

    We just finished the Energy Seminars which was a very good experience in terms of Event Management in China. This month we have the Induction Conference and I have 2 External days to organize. One in Beijing and one in Shanghai..., a city I have never visit :)

    Enjoy the pictures!
