DEAR STORY MAKERS,
This story begins a little bit before Monday, when I received the news: Miguel, you are gonna be proxy. To be honest, I didn't feel prepared to be proxy, I felt a lot of responsibility under my shoulders and I was on denial. However I had a talk with an amazing person: Mariana. I put myself together and I faced the challenge.
I realized many things, one of them: I was enjoying the experience so SO much that whenever someone asked how was I doing I couldn't reply anything but: I am SUPER HAPPY. But not everything was perfect. On the other hand, I felt a little frustrated because I also realized a very important fact: we are missing a lot of opportunities.
What the hell do you mean, Miguel?
- We need to close a cooperation and know which projects are run by which LC and we lack the information.
- We need to apply for a project and we need information of LCs realities and we lack the information
- We have the opportunity to apply to a prize and the missing information comes from our program.
I am also VP and I understand this both ways: sometimes we concentrate in trying to make things happen and we lose track of filling in a survey, signing agreements with our TN Takers, using podio for National Projects, and more. But now I also get it the other way around: This information is SUPER IMPORTANT to make BIGGER THINGS HAPPEN.
And this was my biggest highlight in my time here as MCVP proxy: Cooperating with our national entity will allow us to GROW DISRUPTIVELY.
So, are we gonna take the chance or miss it?

STORY MAKER OF THE WEEK
Last but not least...
I totally enjoyed this last week as MCVP proxy, I tried to help you guys as much as I could, I had the chance to be a little more in touch with some of you, and I even had the chance to talk with a couple of your LCPs. I know some of us have problems, trainees complaining, EB problems, exams, lack of sustain for our projects, troubles with members, many things. But consider one single fact: This is OUR YEAR. This is the first, last, one and only year we have as VPs iGCDP in our LC. What do we want to see when we look back? How do we see ourselves on January 1st? How do we want to see our area when we have to pass the baton to the VP 2016? This is not over yet. We still have A TON of TN Takers, members, families and trainees to deliver the best experience to. We need to hurry up and close sales, match, and get everything prepared for december, for january, for our legacy, for our committee, for our country, for ourselves and for everyone who surrounds us. We are not alone in this, we are all together, TMPs, TLPs, VPs, NSTs, MCBs, MCVPs. All it takes is a phone call, a whatsapp message, an email or a visit to make things happen. But we have to make it happen today, because there is no more room for tomorrow.
I leave you here with a video that I loved, probably some of you already saw it cause it was shown at Everest however I hadn't seen it cause I was not there. For me, it simplifies what our program me is: simple actions which become powerful stories to provide positive impact to our society. And again, this actions must be done TODAY.
