2012 in review

Hello everyone!

We can’t believe our blog has reached its first anniversary a few months ago and now we’re finally celebrating the new year. We hope 2013 will bring at least as many beautiful activities and memories as 2012. Although all of us are in our senior year in high-school, this year has brought so many new projects and rewarding activities. We’re more than happy to share all our achievements with you, our readers and our friends. We hope 2013 will help us become even more close to you and more dedicated to the blog and all its incredible implications. We can’t even begin to express how happy we are for all the support you have shown us and we set as our goal never to disappoint you, our faithful readers! May your year be incredible and full of rewards!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 57,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 13 Film Festivals

Back in Business

We told you we’d be back and I’m really excited to tell you that we are back big time! We have some very exciting news to share with you in the next days so stay tuned!

Ok, to begin with, since June our partnership with Special Olympics extended to our high school too, and we’ve been the liaison between the two. With the occasion of Kira Kegel’s visit, the Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia representive, and another secret project that is yet to be revealed, our school hosted a very interesting event.

The six of us made a presentation in order to show the progress of our blog and project in connection to Special Olympics. Before I post the many photos that we took, I would like to thank, once again, the Special Olympics team for supporting us and helping us fulfill our dreams. We would have never gone so far without their help, if they hadn’t believed in us all this time.

Here’s a gallery with all the photos we took, our teammate Alex presenting three of the Special Olympics athletes, Emilia, the Special Olympics coordinator and Kira Kegel, our guest. We hope you enjoy them! Please feel free to leave your feedback in the comment form below.

Cheers!
