This sporting event took place in the old town of Geneva. It’s an event everyone can take part in – from famous international runners to beginners, children and adults alike. Distances vary from 2km to 8km depending on the category.
Congratulations to Tanya, Hai Ngan and Lola for doing an excellent run in the race today!! Great job ladies!
December 1st has arrived and we are getting Villa du Lac ready for the Christmas season!! Aida made a beautiful Advent Calendar filled with treats and special privileges. Lola was the first to open a box!
Thank you to Olga, Tanya, Irina, and Sofia for helping at the Christmas Market today. Despite the cold weather they were smiling and eager to sell our baked goods for a Charity organization. Also, thank you to Lucélia for making her delicious Pumpkin jam and Paracuca (sweet peanuts).
Yesterday some of the girls had the opportunity to attend the CDL Talks where they had the pleasure of listening to Reginald Bien-Aimé who focused on The Future of Work. He is a successful project manager specializing in marketing and management.
Yasmina attended the talk and came back to the House with a smile on her face, as many of the girls did. She told us, “I loved it! It made me realized the opportunities we have nowadays to make the world a better place. Overall, it motivated me to start working on my future.”
For one of our Well Being activities Lola, one of our Middle School students, came up with a wonderful idea. Each of the girls wrote something on silhouettes that they liked or found unique about each other. It’s a way to acknowledge our differences, whether culturally or personality, and that we should respect and embrace these differences. We have hung them up within our office space so every day we are reminded of the positive qualities we share within the House.
This week we had a great presentation by Stacy as she shared with us a very strong message on how we impact each other’s lives. Stacy explained that the values of RISE are essential as we support each other in our international community. Well done Stacy!
