NYC DCs Reflect: Haikus from Training Day

February 10, 2015

At the end of two longs days of training, we asked our NYC Democracy Coaches to reflect on the experience in the form of a haiku. Lots of mixed emotions – from excitement to anxiousness to plain old fatigue after a long day.

Boston, Bay Area, and Rhode Island DCs: you’re not alone! We’re all in this together as we kick off GC’s best semester yet.

 

Terrified for this

But I learned more than I know

Excited for this

 

To write a haiku

Cannot possibly contain

My full excitement

 

I am a student

This is very difficult

Work together, please

 

Me being part of

Generation Citizen

Will be amazing

 

We will work hard in

Generation Citizen

As the wind blows on

 

The flowers today

Are like that democracy

Of the USA

 

Civic engagement

Is so very important

So you must learn it

 

The great nature of

The lovely democracy

Of the USA

 

The democracy

Is a tool for us to use

To our advantage

 

Inspiring students

Of today for tomorrow

Empowering the youth

 

These two days were long

But I learned a lot of things

I am glad I came

 

It’s my fifth training

I’m very excited now

My DCs are great

 

Listening, guiding

Everyone explore yourself

Lead to civil change

 

Haikus are not fun

But GC is lots of fun

Have a good weekend

 

Generation is

Citizen democra-

Cy to see for all

 

Everything was new

I am excited for it

I am ready to start!

 

On an adventure

To empower youth

Venture forward, cheers

 

I’m excited for this challenge

I cannot wait to learn from others

And watch us all grow

 

I love my DCs

Girls take on the world at Pace

So excited to know you

 

A very long day

Generation Citizen

It was so worth it

 

Ah! Public speaking!

Two day intensive training

Not so anxious now.

 

Busy, so much to do

I keep so busy

Tons and tons to do
