There was an air of excitement in the Creative Space while setting up for Day 1 of the Legacy Program. This seemed to be shared by the students and Rlabs staff alike when everybody had a chance to “check-in” during the introduction session run by Rene Parker.
The first session was run by Craig Ross who explained the benefits of using Gmail. Most of the students already had email accounts, however some of the students needed to setup new ones because the names they used aren’t suitable in the event they apply for a job. Craig explained that we (the class) needed to maintain a level of professionalism in process of building a legacy.
Andy and Sue Horne facilitated session 2 with the group about “Dreaming Your Dreams.” Andy went on to explain what the students can expect over the next 6 months. Some real life stories were shared about a person who dared to dream their dream about becoming a pilot at 40 years of age as encouragement to the students. Later on everybody had to write down the things they all wanted to do before they die and then share that with the group. It was great to hear the excitement in the voices of everyone who shared their dreams.
