Do what you’re passionate about – coz that’s what you do best!

Why does a person that’s not motivated by money, sign up for a marketing & fundraising job? Obviously, this person must be motivated by the cause but can this person ever be successful at marketing and fundraising? Maybe… but the chances are that this person run out of enthusiasm really quickly… especially if it’s a fulltime job and there are no other more suited mentally stimalating projects around to keep this person in touch with the mission! In conclusion, this person must have been very confused indeed at the time of signing up…

Luckily, I found a project that does keep me happily busy, outside of my working hours of course. The only downside is that it has nothing to do with my job so it doesn’t function in terms of keeping me in touch with the mission I’m marketing and fundraising for. I’m a part of the Model United Nations at UPEACE organizing team, more specifically, the Co-Chair of the Peacebuilding Commission for Afghanistan. The conference will take place on January 31st – February 2nd. For me this is the perfect assignment as it fits my passion for international education and allows for quite some creativity on my behalf running the event while I am not responsible for any of the logistics or finance, only the substantive and executive parts. Best of all is the fabulous group of UPEACE students, faculty and staff, whom I’m working with!
