Hi, vinas! Lora Levison here, Hey! VINA‘s Community Manager. As community manager, I get to connect with all the amazing vina ambassadors around the world who are spreading the VINA love by hosting and attending VINA plans.
Which brings me to one rockstar vina ambassador, Yvette Nankafu Zihhalirwa from Cape Town, South Africa. She recently hosted an amazing vina get-together and shared her advice on how to make a public plan a success.
According to Yvette, it’s important that your plan accommodates everyone. “You want everyone to have a good time and feel comfortable at the end of the day,” she says. “It was super easy for everyone to find each because the venue was very easy to find and so well known.”
At the end of the night, Yvette reflected on what a successful vina date it was. “My personal highlight was how easily we all connected after a few minutes in a room—it felt as if we have known each other our whole life!”
Vinas, use Yvette as your inspo. Get on Hey! VINA and create an open plan right now, or check out open plans in your area in the discover plans feature—your girl gang is waiting for you!
