Stress and pressure, totally worth it!

My goodness today was a challenge! A roller coaster! Nervousness, anxiousness, stress, excitement and happiness.

Week 5 of the Grow Academy Bootcamp and GivenGain was in the RLabs space this week and took me and the rest of the recruits on a whole new journey, well it was new to me at least. GivenGain basically let each group come up with a campaign to raise awareness and funds for GROW and present our campaign at the end of the week which was today. I belonged to the group called Team Xtreme and  they are such awesome people, Rabia, Lance and Justine. We created a facebook page called My Growth First and a twitter profile @MyGrowthFirst as well as an activist profile on GivenGain where people can donate to our worthy cause. We also created our own awesome video from scratch which is now on youtube under My Growth First by Team Xtreme.

I’m so proud! Everything we did in a short amount of time. The stress and pressure was totally worth it after the relief we all felt. There was other groups as well with different campaigns such as: The Digital Bootstrap (campaign name: Chain Breakers). Digital Artisans (campaign name: Growing Shapers). The Legends (campaign name: Eat2Grow). I am extremely impressed with all the campaigns presentations and some videos that were made by recruits in one week! Really a creative bunch of youngsters. Team Xtreme

even won a spot certificate for best video (Hoeraay!)

The Grow Academy really challenges you and takes you to new avenues you never knew existed! I’d encourage anyone to enrol at RLabs for the Grow Bootcamp any day, that’s if you want to add to your life 😉
