This day was the last day of our internship. Ms. Roch handed us our completion documents, and before she leaves for a conference abroad, she made sure that it will be an unforgettable experience for all of us. EILER is one another special door that landed me memorable times, and sure that it will stay with me for a lifetime.
Another film was shown to us, and I must say that films from EILER were one of a kind. It is something that you cannot just erase from your consciousness. It lurks deep inside. It lets you think, reflect and gauge you into doing action. These films are what this generation needs in order to understand the real plight of our fellow Filipinos.
Ms. Roch dedicated this day for briefing on the finality of our internship requirements though she needed some help with sorting some files and logistical assistance in the office.
Ms. Roch needed the article, and I was nervous at first handing it to her. She said that there’s nothing I should worry about. She said that I did my best and I will be the one to have encountered this special task. I was glad that I have contributed something purposeful for EILER.
It was the last day of furnishing my feature article. I was fulfilled to imagine that it will appear somehow to the pages of EILER magaizbre, and that would be an honor to my part. More importantly, it will serve a great purpose of being the voice for the oppressed workers.
Ms. Roch again asked for assistance and help in the office. If it is not research work, it will be about organizational help or support. Since there are only a fee staff in EILER, it is a must for us interns to take initiative in helping Ms. Roch.
I continued my feature writing. I admit that it is enjoyable and I do not find it too much exhausting, because it is always writing that makes it possible for me express my thoughts freely. It is my passion to tell stories. And this taks proves that I am able to write a piece that will effect the lives of readers, particularly the workers.
This day, I and Ms. Rochelle made our way to IBON Foundation, Inc. It’s about the conference that Ms. Roch will be attending abroad, and she said that I must accompany her there so that I will be further oriented with the way of NGO work.
Ms. Rochelle, Carla, Yang and I went to UP Diliman for a Worker’s Conference there. Being in UP makes it a nostalgic experience and I always adore the ambience that it brings everytime I set foot upon it. We learned a lot, and we also got stuffed with good food. The food delights never end at Hotel Jen Manila! Haha
Ms. Rochelle tasked us to organize the files and documentation reports. She said that we will a anchor it to a conference type format of documentation report. We were happy seeing the fruits of our job, and we made it sure that we also keep copy of photos for ourselves.
