I expect that this bootcamp will be our stepping stone. That this is not just a contest, but an opportunity to enhance our skills as IT students, an opportunity to bring the best out in us, an opportunity to shine through our ideas. There will be participants from other schools that day, and I hope we could make friends with them, and that we could make connections that would build our future relationships as professionals. I also expect that in this bootcamp, we could win the prize—the many, the better. Last year, two ideas from our school made it into the top ten list, and this year, I believe that more than two ideas could make it. I am hoping so.
IdeaSpace is a foundation that will help turn your techno ideas to reality. If you have great tech idea and passion for business, you might be what they’re looking for, and they might help you what you’re looking for. They help create start-ups with local and global impact.
I admit that at first, I was hesitant about this upcoming bootcamp. I never ever imagined that I could think of an idea which could meet the standards, expectations, and requirements of the said bootcamp. I was never like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs who had great motivations and aspirations especially when it comes to technology. I mean, I like technology, a lot, but I never thought that I could contribute something that could make it even better. But I was wrong. I was really wrong. I am often wrong. I regretted that I didn’t have confidence. I regretted for nearly surrendering when in reality, I could actually do it, I was just full of doubts and never had trusted myself.
Fortunately, this techno bootcamp proved me all wrong. Because this bootcamp actually gives me the hope. True, I was hesitant about it in the beginning, I wasn’t entirely excited about it, but just because I wasn’t excited about it doesn’t mean I should give up—so I gave it a chance. And this chance makes my life turn 180 degrees. Because right now, I am verily excited on this coming September 14, especially since my techno idea was finally accepted by our beloved professor, the one and only Sir Gamboa in the whole wide world. And no, I’m not saying it sarcastically, because even though my previous ideas were rejected by him first, I knew that it was for our own good. So that he can bring out the best ideas from us.

I’m full of hopes now. I am looking forward to that bootcamp day. My idea might not be the best idea out there, but I will give this idea a chance, a chance to prove to everyone that I, too, together with this idea, could make it somehow. I will do my best to conceptualize my idea into something that will hook the judges, and I will create the best business plan about it and convince the judges. Even if it might not turn out the way I planned it to be, I will still give this idea a chance—a chance to sprout its seeds.
I am truly looking forward to that day.
