Do you know this feeling when you see the result of your hard work? This delight when you finally admire it?
3 weeks ago we received information that we should prepare a decoration for the carnival. Our task was to prepare the carnival wings. This project was important because many people would like to see it during the parade.
Our main task was to prepare the material and then cut from it feathers and then transformed it to the big wings. We were looking for materials that are shiny, with glitter or with nice patterns. Together with other volunteers, we quickly started to working on this project. We’ve been working hard all this time. Until the end we did not know what the final result would look alike.
The carnival day has come. Together with the crowd and two other volunteers – Zeynap and Tugba, we were watching the parade. We saw many dancers, beautiful costumes and listened to samba from the speakers and suddenly … We saw our work! The wings were beautiful, large and very colorful. We felt very proud that with other volunteers we have managed to do this beautiful job.
After the parade, we felt amazing. It was a beautiful experience to see the result of your hard work.
