Here is what Rohit said after being elected as the Community Board Observer for Nothing.

Dear Community,

It feels surreal and deeply gratifying to represent our community at the board level as your Community Board Observer (CBO). From the very inception of Nothing, I have been part of this incredible journey, and it’s an honour to now serve in a role that symbolises the connection and commitment we share. My gratitude extends to all the connections I’ve made, solely because of the importance Nothing places on its community. I vividly remember attending the first in-person community event; it was a transformative experience for me. The grounded and friendly nature of everyone on the team reinforced how much they genuinely care about the community.

As I step into the role of CBO, I am reminded that this position is not about ‘I’, but about ‘we’. The collective voice of our community is my guiding force, and I am fully committed to being as bold and conscious in this role as possible. I understand the significance of constructive criticism and believe it to be more crucial than positive news. However, I also recognise the importance of boosting the team’s morale with positive feedback and good vibes from our community. They deserve to hear not just our concerns and critiques but also our encouragement and support.

I promise to do my best in this position and will never take it for granted. I will ensure that every piece of feedback, be it praise or criticism, is thoughtfully considered and packaged before presenting it in meetings. My commitment to Nothing and to each one of you is unwavering, and I will strive to represent every voice in our community with integrity and dedication. This role is a testament to our collective power and influence, and I am eager to bring our voices and ideas to the forefront of decision-making processes.

Thank you once again for your trust and support. Here’s to a new chapter where we continue to grow, innovate, and shape the future together.
