Being a volunteer was quite a big challenge for me because
in this team we experienced hardships. In
spite of what we went through, still we faced them with
patience and understanding. It was one of the most amazing
experiences in my life. When I decided to volunteer I
couldn’t imagine how grateful I would be
that I was given the chance to be part of the team.
Having the chance to be a NAMFREL 2013 volunteer
was beyond words and an amazing opportunity for
me. During our market campaign, I met different kinds
of people who had different stands and ideas on current
political issues. It was an opportunity for me to
develop my leadership skills.
No words can explain how thankful I am to work in a
team of such energetic, vigilant, and accommodating
people coming together with the same passion. I felt
like I found a new family. Being part of the NAMFREL
team brought me a great challenge, helped me
expand my circle of friends, and gave me the opportunity to
cross paths with some “extraordinary” people with different
personalities most especially the people in (COGON) market
where we had our first market campaign. I also learned many
things such as how important a volunteer’s job is and how to
work as a team. I felt more energetic, strong, and
passionate when I participated in the NAMFREL team.
Volunteering is a great way to discover oneself by
cooperating with others. Thank you all for this experience.
It was really a soul-lifting experience that I will never
forget... God Bless!
