The coming of the end is nearing. During my stay here at RIM, I had the most wonderful time yet I too had the worst of nightmares. When one of my seniors told me that one year here would be just like a dream, I was too excited. At times I felt my stay here like ages, at other times I wished my student life never come to an end.
As a leader here, I know I have failed in some areas. I might have also failed to display the character of a perfect leader yet I tried my best. 'You cannot make everyone happy.' I heard my senior say. I know I could not impress everyone. However, it gave me the best opportunity to learn and grow. Every day experience lead me to achieve more and move towards attainment of maturity. It gave me the platform to know myself more.
I was often split between my roles as a leader and the need to fulfill my own roles. So often I wished I was among the crowd, relaxed, with no worries of programs, time management of the speakers, anxious over things not getting as planed, or not having to force people who did not want to work.
Occasionally, I wanted to lead my life my way with no roles. With no people expecting anything from me, with no judgement passed about me when I was spotted with a little drawback. After all, all humans are bound to mistakes. But something that kept my spirit burn was being able to initiate activities, bring smiles on people, cheer the crowd and be the voice of people.
My cohort was the best of people I ever meet. I was able to learn from everyone. I know we have been through blues but we stood united against all the forces that affected us. Yes, we battled it well. It may not have been the best of our times here, but I always appreciate the way we supported each other.
When I will look back after 10 years, I would not regret to say : "those were the best people I meet in my life."
To all my friends I would like to thank for your support. I would cherish all our times together: our nights to booze out, several birthday celebrations, our trip to Simtokha, another to Talakha, our campaign to Lamperi. Those were the most amazing experiences we had together.
I thank all people who supported me and would like to wish you all luck, success and happiness every where you go. All the best in your careers ahead.
