UXPH + ADPList Kick-off: The Impact of Community & Mentorship

I celebrated my birthday and turned 24. Hosted a kick-off party with UXPH and ADPList. The event was entitled Kick-off: The Impact of Community & Mentorship 😎

We had ADPList Mentors share their insights about the impact of community and mentorship in the Philippine Creative Scene during this 1-hour session held on Zoom and Facebook Live.

This was my first time hosting an event. Happy to say that I also learned a lot from the discussion between the panel speakers we invited to speak! 🤩

Our initial plan was to host this event on ADPList Meet but we decided to host the event instead on Zoom and Facebook Livestream.

The community was super engaging in the chat with conversations and questions happening during the live panel discussion.

It was also our first time getting Zoom-bombed which led the UXPH Team to take account Zoom Security features moving forward. 😭

Here are some tips I learned after my session with Grace Ling and me checking out Zoom security features:
  1. Enable waiting room.
  2. Disable screen-sharing in security settings.
  3. Mute participants upon entry.
  4. Don’t allow participants to rename themselves to avoid trolling.
  5. Have multiple co-hosts to moderate the session.

Shoutout to UXPH Team and ADPList Team (Ina, Aldrich, Kaizen, Mikka, Ely, Jade, Jentz, Lindy, Charlotte, Jake, Angela, Felix, Winona, and Jun) as well for the support, partnership, and event planning!

Opening night of our school's Academy Actors One-Act, Our Place! This is an absolutely hilarious and simultaneously heartbreaking series of vignettes each taking place on the same rustic dock that each group claims as "Our place."

I played Jonathan (an old man with Alzheimer's) and Corey (a dedicated but clingy boyfriend), so fun times all-around.

See photos 3 and 8 for proper equipment of life-safety gear and turkey and cheese sandwiches!

Manage to travel during the pandemic. Both a blessing and experience in itself. 
I travelled before the travel lanes were announced between Singapore and America, and I know that was quite a privilege itself. The chance to experience somewhat normal life and to be with my friends is something I’m so thankful for. 

Practiced Cooking
Cooked Indian food
Tried cooking for the first time in a while. 🙈😁

It was "Khichdi" (Indian dish) - also burnt it a little bit though 😐
Secured lunch
Went to get dessert
Anyone who knows me know I’m a huge fan of sweets & pastries. I’m a foodie but moving back to Atlanta might have turned me into a real sweets connoisseur. I stumbled upon Cinnaholics via TikTok & have been satisfied ever since then! They have a great selection of different cinnamon rolls & all options are also vegan! 🍩

If you want a home cooked meal and don’t feel like sweating over the stove go get you some Mikkey’s. They catered a recent event I was part of and that shit was hittin
