A day working in the room n° 68

A Day Working in the Room n° 68

By Antonia Di Lorenzo

A day working at Grow3 begins at 9.30 am in the morning, in the room n° 68 on the third floor of the Eurolink building, just five minutes walk from the Brixton tube station.

My first day I knocked on the door and I took a seat. Before starting I made a cup of tea, even though I used to start my day with a hot espresso, but I was not able to use the coffee maker. No matter, because I was so nervous and anxious to let caffeine flow into my veins.

Around me people from different countries filled the room. Italians, Brazilians, Chileans, Indians, Venezuelans, British, Spanish. I thought: am I in London?

Each person has a different background, experience or studies. Everyone has a different story to tell. But they all are part of a multicultural community ready to grow together as team and to help other people grow.

Our flexibility and desire to learn is our motivating power.

In the first days in Grow3 I learned:

  • No matter what you have studied, your background, or your previous experience your ideas weigh more.
  • No matter where you come from, you will be part of an engaging community, to share your knowledge and make it available for others.
  • Behind every kind of business, there are people. We go beyond money to see what our clients really need. Nothing can be built sustainably without passion and inspiration.

As Albert Camus said:

“To create is likewise to give a shape to one’s fate”.

That’s how we work in the room n° 68.
