Although Caitlin is still helping out with the conclusion of the games, the rest of the Brightspot team came into work this morning. We are all feeling the effects of jet-lag after our long flight over the weekend.
We all arrived safely back in the U.S with a few souvenirs; some tangible trinkets and lots of incredible memories. While in Seoul the night before flying back to the States, the team wandered in and out of a few shops and we excitedly bought some Korean items to share with our families back home. Cecily's desk is now home to a cute Korean mouse pad!
However, we all came back with more than just souvenirs. I think for all of us, the meaning and importance of these games really hit home once we were on the ground helping to make the winter games a success. Our efforts will continue to benefit the Special Olympic athletes who display amazing skills and inspirational sportsmanship.
Even though I was exhausted by working 16 hours a day, just to see the happiness we all brought to the athletes and their families took my tiredness away
We are all looking forward to the LA games in 2015, and how we may get involved again. Learning from these games, we can see how Brightspot Digital can make an even bigger contribution. We would all like to thank Lisa and David for giving us the chance to take part in the event, and for trusting us to make the Brightspot team proud of our contribution.
