We kicked it off with a very inspiring talk by the first All Woman Singaporean Team to summit Mt. Everest. Five ladies who had little to zero experience in mountaineering, had by chance and opportunity, come together to prepare, train, and fund the massive undertaking of conquering Mt. Everest. It took them a period of five years, and the big take away for me was that as women we are Strong Alone, and Unstoppable Together.
We also had a quick workshop on photography basics and social media (how to hashtag, I kid you not). No lessons on taking selfies though! :p I think this bunch of girls are all highly-skilled on that front.
And later after our workshops, we were presented with a set of lockers, and we used the key pendants to open them up. So cool to see each locker personalized with pics from our instagram accounts, and with Nike kicks and apparel perfectly sized for each of us to change into for our first workout. And we also received personal notes from a mysterious "P." I wonder who had the tedious task of scrolling through 20 instagram accounts and picking out the perfect pics to print! Definitely a highly experienced social media stalker :P
