My first day at work.
I wasn’t to keen on the whole idea of waking up early in the morning to go to work in my school vacation, as would any other teenager, but that wasn’t my biggest dilemma in fact it wasn’t a problem at all, because I wanted to see how work life is and how the Seychelles Energy Commission (SEC) operates. My actual problem was being nervous that I would fail, but I didn’t and I’m pretty sure I won’t.
As I stood on the elevator thinking of ways to introduce myself to the CEO Mr. Imaduwa I started feeling pressure build up in my throat. As the door opened I walked out and went for the door and pushed the button and waited for a response. The door swung open and Ms. Christine the current HR welcomed me inside. As it seemed that I arrived too early I sat there laughing at myself because all that worrying was for nothing. After a couple of minutes I met Denis one of my new coworkers. We were briefly introduced and about 5 minutes later the Mr Imaduwa came and called me into his office. We sat down and I introduced myself and he kindly welcomed me into the work place. He showed me to my desk and I got my first task, which was to find everything I can on SEC, so I did, truly it was a good thing because I knew almost nothing at first.
I found out that SEC was established in the year 2009 under the Seychelles Energy Act. The main purpose of SEC is to regulate electricity in Seychelles. I know what you’re thinking, what does SEC has to do with the Blue Economy but it does, SEC promotes renewable energy and renewable energy comes in different ways. SEC connects in different ways with the Blue Economy, the ocean can supply renewable energy, marine renewable energy as it is called. I won’t go too much on the technical terms but the ocean offers a lot of potential renewable energy.
