Elvis Okeny of Baltimore, MD joined the Jobble community in May 2017 and has been actively participating since then. Starting out with a setup/breakdown event in Baltimore, MD, Elvis recently traveled up to Dover, DE to work countless hours at the Firefly Music Festival. Elvis earned a spot on Jobbler of the Month due to his dedication, willingness to be a team player, eagerness to learn and general ability to show his true desire to be a key player in the success of the festival.
“Elvis made my job a lot easier. He was one of my main, go-to Jobblers during the Firefly Music Festival. He did everything that was asked and went above and beyond. He was reliable and even asked to work more hours, including overnight. His leadership skills and commitment were very impressive.” -Christina Bonanno, Community Growth Manager at Jobble
Elvis loves being a part of the Jobble community because Jobble brings people together. He sees the community growing and how different skills and styles become connected to make everything flow together. Elvis feels connected to people and has a talent of understanding people’s emotions and using that to his advantage, especially in difficult situations. He provides a willingness to lead, work hard, and commitment to whatever task he has been given.
“Working multiple positions at Firefly Music Festival has allowed me to acquire some onset skills while learning to be a leader myself. By surrounding myself around other leaders, resulted in a collaboration of brilliant ideas that made the festival run smoothly and successfully.”
Elvis is entering his final year at Finlandia University, where he studies physical therapy. His dream job is to start a sports fitness facility and clinic. When Elvis isn’t busy at school or working with his group of friends that typically accompany him on some Jobbles, you’ll find him working on his fitness or playing basketball.
From all of us here at Jobble, we are appreciative for all of your hard work, dedication and the above-and-beyond commitment to each position you’ve held. We wish you success and look forward to continuing to see you as a valued member of the Jobble community! Congratulations and keep up the great work Elvis!
