Thanks for taking time to review my volunteer application. My name is Vafa Adib. I live in Calgary, Alberta. I work at University of Calgary as senior database and application technical analyst.
Something I forgot to mention while filling out the online application form:
I believe in two main key elements when it comes to Olympic Photography:
Good knowledge of photography
Good knowledge of the sport being photographed
I am very confident with my photography skills, and beside I know these sports very well since I have done all of them in some competition levels: Karate, Judo, Table Tennis, Football (universal football, soccer), Handball, Basketball, Swimming, Badminton, Gymnastics, Volleyball and Wrestling.
As a person who likes to volunteer, volunteering for the Olympics would be like a climber making it to the summit of Mount Everest. It would be a great experience for me, and I believe I have a lot to contribute as a volunteer.
I’ve always enjoyed volunteering. I like to give back to the community and help people where helps needed. In my 17 years of living in Calgary I volunteered at many events, most of them run by non-profit agencies, like Catholic Family Service (CFS), Alberta Network Of Immigrant Women (ANIW), Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO), Calgary Multicultural Centre (CMC), Calgary Board of Education(CBE), Red FM Radio, Calgary Kyokushin Karate and more. In these events I helped with photography, Hi-Tech, media and digital tasks.
I have a passion for photography and Hi-Tech. In the past 7 years I volunteered at several Canada Kyokushion Karate competitions in Calgary, Banff, Edmonton and Vancouver. Some of the photos taken by me are available on this page. I have designed my own private website which is built on the WordPress platform. Web site is maintained by myself. This page is not public and I only made it for this application.
