World Neothink® Day Gala – A Genius Idea!
Being the A-Team Coordinator I had the Area of Responsibility of planning and preparing for our local A-Team World Neothink® Day Gala which was truly surreal.
When the time came for me to plan my attire it triggered memories regarding my being stood up for my high school prom. It also reminded me of the fact that I was cheated out of the opportunity to wear the elegant designer wedding dress and accessories that I had meticulously purchased regarding my formal wedding in Nigeria.
On prom night I was dressed up in a beautiful peach gown and wearing pearl accessories with no place to go. Feeling the pain of my disappointment my dad offered to escort me but I was too embarrassed so I stayed home.
During my Nigerian journey, I was forced to travel back to America prior to my wedding, and when I returned to Nigeria, I never saw the expensive wedding dress and accessories, which I left in my husband’s possession.
Planning for the World Neothink® Day Gala gave me the unique opportunity to finally experience my very special day. I was excited! In preparation for the “gala” with a child’s heart I created elegant jewelry pieces daily.
Creating the ambiance for the “gala” on World Neothink® Day was another truly magical moment. Transforming the party room into a professional entertainment hall with a control room for our managing staff and stage area for the talent was exhilarating. Being an apprentice rocks!!!
Finally, I had a chance to experience a magical moment that every woman longs for, yet that moment had always eluded me before, but not this night! The magic filled me with excitement. I shared the same feelings that a child experiences the night before Christmas.
