Volunteering in Garba Fest
Garba fest was an event organised by two of my colleagues and I was the head of the decorations department along with Avina. I was very happy to be in the decorations department as I love doing the same but it was one big responsibility as the main glam of the event would be the decorations.
There was a lot of work to be done from preparing the photo booth to the lightings of the venue which was a challenge to coordinate with academics . Avina and I had to work collaboratively to ensure that the work is done on time. But because of less experience our planning did not go right due to which Naomi( another volunteer) and I had to work on the photo booth for the whole day on the main day which was hectic.
This definitely taught me time management and gave me experience of how things are managed which will help me in future as well.
Moreover it was the first time I had to talk by myself to several dealers of different things which again increased my knowledge in the field. It made me realise the strength I have in the field of event management and made me want to participate in more such events.
We found ourselves pondering for a solution to the social issue of global significance : Wastage of food. A lot of food was wasted on that day because not many people consumed the food. We thought about what we could do with the food; give it away to someone who needs it and thankfully our school also has a compost system.
The outcome of all the hard work and time we had put in was great. Not only I was proud and happy with the beauty the venue had but other as well who appreciated me and Avina. In the end everyone enjoyed the whole event by doing garba in the beautiful atmosphere that was created.
