Thank You all For Coming: it was an amazing experience!

24 Feb

Convergencias 2013 is now over and there is a surreal feeling to it after so many months of planning. What is true is that all of the efforts put in by Penn students would have meant nothing without all of you. It might sound cliché, but I believe I can speak on behalf of all of the organizers when I say that the way you engaged with the speakers and other attendees throughout the day was extremely inspiring and simply amazing. We are incredibly grateful to you all for believing in this project and we can’t wait for Convergencias 2014 to see you again.

Hay un refrán maya que dice, “No puedes poner maíz en una canasta con huecos.“ Las discusiones que intercambiamos este fin de semana son sólo el comienzo del proceso para enmendar la canasta y es vital que las ideas no se queden en las hojas impresas para nuestros discursos. Sigamos con el mismo entusiasmo para lograr el cambio que queremos ver en el país que tanto queremos. Muchísimas gracias a todos por sus participación activa y por ayudarnos a tener un evento tan increíble.

Un abrazo fuerte a todos de parte de los estudiantes de Penn.

Hope to see you all soon. Let’s keep the conversation going!
