SJWP experiences from a former NatOrg
This is a brief recap of the SJWP that contains the experiences and main lessons I had (from 2013 to 2017) as a NatOrg and as academic coach of the Mexican Participants.
Having an age closer to the participants, gave me the opportunity to observe a glimpse of what younger generations are experimenting in a rapid changing, challenging world and the chance to be the link between them and the experts, whose main interest is water. This journey have been always full of surprises and wonders; fortunately, all of them have a name and a face to remember with love and gratitude.
Organizers have so much love to give… I’ve seeing them comforting nervous kids, encouraging teams, giving tissues and hugs to those that breaks under pressure or when kids win self confidence, fixing ties and hairdos, watching them being genuinely happy for our colleagues and the teams that won the prize.
A special mention is required for Ania’s team: they have been imbuing every action taken at a national and international level, propelling each edition of the prize into excellency and inspiring through their hard work, disposition and forward thinking.
It’s been a pleasure working with outstanding people at national and international level of the prize, whose commitment on their duties have been maintaining and improving every edition of the prize in their countries and strengthening the NO’s community over the years.
