After an excellent networking dinner, hosted by Stephanie Gaddin, Technology Coach from Rocking Rose, I was inspired by a trip idea from our conversation. As a recently welcomed citizen to this “Lucky Country” of Australia, I’m aware of my obligation to vote, but not really sure about the nuance. A fellow immigrant who raised her children in Australia told me that her kids went on a field trip in grade 6 to Canberra to learn all about how the government works. Lightbulb moment: “Ah-hah, that’s what we need, an adult field trip for immigrant citizens to catch up on their missed grade 6 lesson!”
With names of grade 6 teachers to contact bouncing across the table, I was inspired to make this happen. So as I sat waiting for the 96 tram home, instead of being disappointed by the 12 minutes displayed on the screen, I pulled out my phone and logged into YouLi.
Before I got home, I sent Steph the public link to the trip we are going to make happen: https://youli.io/t/jenfein/grade6-canberra-for-immigrants
Sure, we have to build an audience, find the suppliers and all that – but now we have a beautiful representation of what it could be, which makes it much more likely to happen.
