I’ve been elected again as the Vice President of the Marketing Committee of my organization. Compared last year, I’m not feeling any pressure - coz if I did, that’s kind of stupid. Why would I be pressured by my own self? Haha.
I remember the time when I was newly-elected. I felt very happy but soon enough, fear had dawned me. Various “what ifs” popped out everywhere inside my head. “What if I can’t comply with my committee’s tasks?”, “What if my members will hate me and end up disliking the org?”, “What if I didn’t really deserved my position?”.
Pressure. That’s what made me ask those questions to myself. I know it was natural though. Besides, the former VP of my committee made a great job doing his responsibilities. I’ve always admired him (not in a romantic way. ew) to balance his obligations for the org and his academics. I have always looked up to him whenever I’m not sure of the decisions I made.
People would always compliment me, telling me that I did a great job being the VP of my committee. But little do they know that it was thanks to my former VP and of course to my members and especially my assistant.
I didn’t expect it but, I can count on all my members (disregarding the two gentlemen) in every responsibility I gave them. Our committee’s tasks are not easy. Well basically, Marketing is in-charged of all the visuals, props, costumes, videos etc. if there was an competition event our organization had joined. And we’re not “seasonal”. Whenever there is a need for costume designs, we’ll provide it. Whenever a need for a support poster arises, we’ll make it. Whenever the org needs to glitter itself, we’ll make sure it’ll outshine the others. That being said, what we do can’t be accomplished without the right plan and execution.
And my members understood that clearly. Take the Yo! event (group dance competition) for example. The dancers’ practice would start 6 PM onwards. Even though one can’t come, he’ll make sure to help on another time. Sometimes, they attend not just because its their responsibility. But instead, it’s the mere fact that they just want to attend.
And of course, there was our org’s fashion event. I gotta say, the members of committee think alike. And when the theme for our fashion event was revealed, not one of them was thrilled. I was not too. Well it’s because we didn’t like the theme. But putting that aside, my mems still worked hard on our designs. I’ve gotta admit, even though we didn’t like the result of the theme-voting, we made a great gob doing our designs. Greater than our designs from the past year. It was really fulfilling. I knew they were half-hearted when they discovered what the theme was. However, that didn’t stop us to make our designs, beautiful and astounding.
Our tasks wouldn’t be a success without our coordination. I’m really thankful to have the chance to work with Dan, Jiel, Chin, Faye, Jairo, Louie, Carlo, Ruf, Bea, Edu, JC, Djo, Celina and Jem for whole year.
Maybe they’re the reason I’m not pressured a lil bit? Coz we’ll make sure that everything we’ll do the next academic year will be more greater than what we did for this year. :)
