Is Borneo Blockchain Summit a Success?
The Answer is : The Volunteers
Its pretty obvious to see its a success, but the success answer goes to the Volunteers. As you may not know, this is organised by Steemians around Kota Kinabalu with a few volunteers from Team Malaysia. (No Doubt Team Malaysia in Malaya plays big role Too in helping for Crowdfunding, Donations in Steem & etc).
The point is this, these volunteers just happen to be a normal bloke who apparently likes to write and earn in Steem, and this community in Sabah happens to only know each other for about 8-10 months and some even lesser. Think about it for a sec, I had this conversation with @danieldoughty during @zamifara Raya Open House, we barely know everybody here but if in Steem, its like a Family thing and we pull off together to organize first Borneo Blockchain Summit. Fucking HELL!!!
We literally became a family in Steemit, some are medical officers, engineers, most of them are physiotherapist, valuers, housewife, student, professional event sound engineer, musician and etc These people took work leave to attend the briefing on the 7th Sept, some even took unpaid leave just to be a Volunteer in this event. Could you believe that ???
These are remarkable people, they are the kindest heart at its best. A moment that struck me is when I saw them carried the Hot Big Tray of Food from the Cafeteria to the Canopy, serving food to the hungry participant. My heart literally melted, blew me away that they can go to that extent to help and make BBS a success. Mind you, most of the Steemians Volunteers are ladies, they carry and walk about 100 meters under the Hot Sun, one tray after another just to fill up and keep adding the buffet line (back and forth).
From coming to attend briefings, meetings and discussion, you volunteers never shed a lite of tear and complain, it was purely from the heart to contribute and help out for the community and the people of Sabah. Without you Volunteers, they wont be a Borneo Blockchain Summit.
The success goes to each and every one of you volunteers, I would like to name each and every one of you
