There are very few times in my life where I have felt so embraced and fully a part of something. The UACR banquet was one of these very few experiences. I cannot even express in words how amazing it was to reunite with the entire team and recognize everyone for a job well done over the course of the season. This was the first event like this that I have ever been to. I couldn’t believe how much of a cohesive and strong unit we had become over such a short time. What Nathan, John, and others had said was so true, we were a family. I loved every bit of the banquet. The prizes were phenomenal, so much so that I was literally on the verge of tears. When I received my award I was so overwhelmed mainly because I was so happy that someone would think so highly of me. I couldn’t even believe that I had won an award just for being me. When I saw all my fellow team members being recognized as well for their contributions to the team I was so happy for them and so proud to be a part of something so fantastic. Robotics has made my life so much better in so many ways. The people, the experiences, and the everlasting memories and friendships I have made make the experience one of the best things I have ever chosen to be a part of. The banquet was like a celebration of all the positive things our team has done as a whole. Robotics is amazing and I am beyond proud. UP-A-CREEK!
