This July/August, I got the chance to volunteer with the 2015 Pan American and Para Pan Am games. It was a great experience, and I had the COOLEST job; I was on the medal ceremonies crew! It was our job to coordinate the medal ceremonies, raise flags, escort athletes and dignitaries to the podium, and bring out the medals and gifts!
For the Pan Am games, I worked the equestrian events (which I requested, of course), and during Para Pan Am I was stationed at the venue for wheelchair tennis (which was amazing).
I worked with some great people, and I wanted to give them a small but unique token by which to remember the experience. I decided on pinback buttons — one for each of my teams.
