Favorite MAJET Experience:
My favorite MAJET memory occured right at the end of my term on the committee. It was during the leavers party on Oshima island. After a long day of barbequing and games on the beach, a bunch of us went for a late night swim in the ocean. As we did so, we noticed a subtle glimmer of electric blue bioluminescence as we swam through the water. I remember this stirring excitement amongst us as we ran back to tell the others.
However, my fondest and favourite memories of MAJET are the little things. Meeting so many great people, road trips, board games, drinking games and just all the chances we’ve had to sit around and share each other’s company. Collectively, these moments and the people are, for me, what makes MAJET a special community.
