Nico’s Perspective


It’s been one month since the Life@50 conference in Boston and people are still talking about it!

The energy hasn’t died yet!

 The event was a gigantic production; a long, but rewarding process for everyone involved. What was really amazing though was the dedication of our volunteers. We wouldn’t have been able to pull it off without them!

Nico was one of those volunteers.

He braved the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center’s showroom floor putting himself right in the thick of the action!

“I helped mostly with technology: tablets, twitter, instagram and other social media. I helped them connect to the world”

Nico was a consistent presence throughout the entire conference, choosing to Mentor Up each day.

So why did he do it?

Why did he volunteer his entire weekend?

Luckily he told us exactly why!

Here’s what he had to say about it all:

Its a good way to give back what I knowWhat I know can benefit other people.

 I think a lot of people dont understand that we grew up with this technology, and it comes easier to us than older people who didnt.

“I taught somebody how to make a twitter. It was a good experience because I helped her make the account and then saw her on twitter using hash-tags and understanding the technology.”

I felt like a better person knowing that my knowledge can help others.

Boston was my first time doing something like thatyeah, I would do it again!

 

Thanks to all our volunteers who helped us accomplish this feat!
