In 2016, my high school class celebrated our silver reunion. It started with the realization that we were scattered all over the globe. Many had already lost contact with each other. And those still connected live in different countries. Others have forgotten their friends, while many with the memory of an elephant, remembered plenty of interesting details about our high school days.
As a result, we decided to make a reunion book. We intended it to be a catalogue and a networking platform for alumni. The main ideas were: 1) So we could remember again who we were, 25 years ago, 2) to learn something about each other’s lives and 3) the possibility of doing something together in the future. In private, business or beyond.
For me, the book is "personal" because I am part of the Class of 1991 and the reunion book’s team leader. Blissfully, I did not solely create the book. It was the result of great teamwork among many friends.
The first thing we did, was gathering all the photos from the past, many of which may still be found. Fewer pictures were taken In the era before smartphone, selfie, and social media. So everyone was ecstatic as hundreds of vintage photos started to pour into dropbox.
