So, crew EJN presented their crew name suggestions to Miss Robinson in last week’s crew hangout. They were prepared, confident, and articulated their reasons for each individual really well.
I was very impressed!
After almost an hour of presenting their slides, Miss Robinson decided that our new crew name was going to be…(drum roll please)…
This is after the famous Mexican artist ‘Frida Kahlo’. You may recognise some of her artwork below:
She created a number of self-portraits as well as paintings about her disabilities.
She had a really tough time and was in a lot of pain throughout her life.
Here are some of the pages that Arthur in our crew prepared to describe her:
So, as you can see from Arthurs slides – she didn’t have it easy. She had a lot of challenges to overcome in her life – but she was so determined and courageous!
Harrison read through most of the slides as Arthur had a few technical issues and was losing connection. Harrison read really well, he was clear and confident. He showed a lot of courage as I know he was not in his comfort zone whilst doing it. Well done Harrison.
For Arthur’s last page he described why he thought that we should name our crew after Frida Kahlo…
The reasons that he gave above absolutely blew me away and actually brought a tear to my eye – thinking about how far we have come as a crew and all that we have been through!
We have been through some hard times, some challenging times, some difficult times – but we are crew and we can get through it! We support each other and back each other up.
I am a very proud, emotional, embarrassing, and ‘cringy’ crew leader – but I don’t care!
I’ll leave you with this quote from Frida which I think is VERY true.
