Winner of Cool Friend Award
My friend Laia in London is the winner of the newly developed Cool Friend Award. She generously skyped with my HR class and told them all about her career in fashion. My students were totally blown away. How cool that we were able to see and talk to her while it was 9pm in the UK and 1pm in California. At the end of our conversation she took her laptop and turned it to the window so that we could see the evening sky. There was my old street, as Laia was my neighbor when we lived in London. What was even better was that we could see our class' reflection in her window from the skype video image. Suddenly we all felt like we were with Laia in London and that gave us the giggles.
