I tell you this event in the record website Vocaroo:
I’m going to tell you about some good news that I received last year related to my work. It isn’t been a long time so I can remember that day so well.
First at all, I was working in my office where I work as an architect, when a new email arrived from my phone. Unexpectedly, I received an official notification to attend a conference about BIM (Building Information Modelling) technology. So, I got the chance to assist to the program called “Deux jours exceptionnells” (two incredibly days) which was in Lyon during three days. I was highly delighted to hear this news.
Several months before that day, I had applied for a recruitment process in the University of Lyon, then they had accepted my application. During the process which was very competitive, we were tested about our knowledge of technology in general as well as French language level. Though it required time and effort, the result was very rewarding.
Immediately, I said to my family, “I pass the recruitment exam”. And my sister said, “Your success is truly inspiring for all of us. You make even the most challenging tasks look easy. Truly proud of you. Congratulations”. To be honest, I expected not to pass the exam. Finally, I promised to pay for dinner so we agreed to have it this evening.
So, as soon as I received this email, it took my brain a few seconds for this news to sink in. I was speechless, then shouted my heart out and finally, I screamed out loud because I was extremely excited. I had been waiting for this email since I reached the admission.
After that, I managed to convince my boss that if they didn’t allow me to step out of my comfort zone to explore the world, my dreams would be small.
Eventually, everything was smoothly, so it was an eventful conference where fortunately I met people from diverse backgrounds.
Even now, I still keep this lucky email in my mailbox. I wouldn’t mind receiving good news like this more often in the future.
