Remember the challenge Jacqui gave me before going on vacation? I had to throw a party! Well, it took place on April 11th and everything went better than I expected!
I was alone to organize everything, and it was pretty complicated! There are a lot of aspects to think about such as food, prizes, decorations, theme, etc. I decided to organize a casino party! Here, guests love to play games and it's an easy way to have fun.
I had to respect a budget of $50, not much for a big hostel such as ours! So, Dollarama became my best friend for the preparation week of the party. With the help of Desmond, one of the managers, I received real poker and black jack tables for free
I had to contact volunteers so that they would help me and be behind the tables as croupiers. Nele, Prashant, Udi and William all came and did a wonderful job! Some of them even stayed after to clean up with me. Obviously, we were all dressed up to add to the casino feeling and most of the guests too.
For the food, we had a lot of snacks: popcorn, candies, cookies, chips and even more! The games we played were poker, black jack, lucky 7, yahtzee and casino war. Everybody was given a bag of fake money which consisted in their budget for the evening. The party started slowly, but ended being successful! A lot of guests participated and seemed to enjoy it.
Oh and why is the title "infinity and beyond"? This internship and particularly this challenge made my realize that I can achieve anything with effort. I just need to be pushed a little, to be courageous and take the lead because I can do it! I can tell you I would never have done something like that 2 months ago with that much confidence in my work...
This quote is really inspiring for me right now and really represents my internship.
