Community

19 Nov

It wasn’t until recently that I realized how important it is for me to be involved in the community that I am living in. And by saying this, I don’t mean just on a social level. Philanthropic involvement, spiritual involvement, physical involvement, I could go on and on… After graduation last year, my key focus, priority numero uno, was getting a job.

So, that happened, work is going great, but there is something missing.

I’m one of those people who perform better, do more, and am generally a happier person when I am BUSY. So I joined a running clinic, signed up for a French class and was going to yoga a few times a week.

Still, something was missing.

About a month ago a friend took me to a mixer after work, there was wine, appies, and young business professionals, lots of them. All chatting, networking, mingling and in general having a good time. And in that moment, watching this happen, it hit me like a tonne of bricks. What I was missing was a community.

After the mixer I asked more about how I could get involved with the group throwing the mingle, Prodigy Group.

Fast forward 1 month…

I am now apart of the team, focussing on developing Social Media for PG and super excited to be involved with this organization. There are some amazing people who sit on the board who have  a focus on community, mentorship, events, and in general, being awesome. This little bit from their website explains it best “The Prodigy Group is a diverse network of emerging professionals who reside in the Greater Victoria Area. Through our ties to the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce and other business and community organizations, we provide our members the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and to affect positive change in Greater Victoria.”

Thanks Lindsay for bringing me to the mingle & introducing me to PG. Super excited for what is to come over the course of the next year.
