Shane and Kate Plus Eight

Spread the love

September 10, 2010We are team one, and because there are ten of us and our road team leaders are Shane and Katie, we have dubbed ourselves, “Shane and Kate Plus Eight”Today we had to be up and out the door at 6:20am. SOO EARLY. One of our neighbors wasn’t too pleased to wake up to the sound of our bus engine so she decided to let us know!Then he went onto the bus. The drive to Bishop Ryan Catholic Secondary School was once again another quiet ride. Everyone was so tired and anxious to present our second Think Day presentation.Once we arrived at the school we were in a crunch to set up. But we started on time and the students were instantly interested in the opening video. I watched the facial expressions from a few students go from not giving-a-care to quite excited within seconds. Once Shane and I entered the stage to start, the students were right into the show. The girls LOVED Bondless, our band that is touring with us this semester! They were clapping and singing along. It was great! When it came time for LiveDifferent (formerly Absolute)’s “Disband” (where we have a group of students and teachers pretend we are on American Idol), the students (judges) were very great and cooperative, they stayed in character and had fun with it. The teachers were great as well – they rocked hard and the students decided that they had what it takes to make it in today’s music industry.After the show, there were swarms of students surrounding the Bondless table. When I talked to a few of the students, a comment I heard multiple times was, “the stories are so real” and “[Shane’s] story reminded me of then I was [2] because…”. It was encouraging to me as a student to hear how these students can relate to our stories. Overall, I’d say that the students loved it! We were a hit!~ Emily, LiveDifferent (formerly Absolute)’s School of Leadership student
