Topo Gigio Current Student Council
Name is Topo, I am a dad, a husband, a friend and a degenerate. I've been in Solana NFTs since September and have organically grown my platform through transparency and trying my best to be a good anon in this sea of anons. My first NFT was a Degenerate Ape and from that day the old, and new discord have been my primary home. It's been an honor to represent the Degeneverse on Twitter, but think it's damn time we push hard internally as a community. These next 120 days, will be the most important for our community since the mint(s)
From the Ape's mouth Why I want to be on the Student Council
My focus has always been "community" that challenge has and always will be defining what success is and how to measure it.Having a natural flow in our discord is key, a welcome, a lay of the land, an understanding of what you have bought and where you should go. That would be something I'd love to help revamp, clean up, combine and grow our discord through activity-driven metrics.
We have a decent little treasury growing, assuring the preservation of that capital is also important. We need to, as a community, spend, save, and invest thoughtfully.
We also should utilize those funds to encourage community building and participation. Take this website for example, it was built by JSB, that seems like something we should encourage.
A few questions we have What do you think about....
- What do you love most about the Degeniverse?
It's been my web3 home, I've seen it grow, contract, grow again.The overall reliance of this group has been what I am most proud of, the market can be ugly but the DAOO will always bring me some comfort.
The art is undeniable, the brand potential is incredible, and the future success of DAA and our DAOO will come down to execution and communication.
- What skillset or experience do you have that sets you apart from other candidates, and how do you plan to utilize it for the benefit of the community?
I've had IRL executive leadership, and I've run successful teams in many successful businesses.
Never have I considered myself a leader of people, but understand at times you need to do things that are individually uncomfortable for the betterment of the whole.
My leadership has been through example, I'd plan on continuing that. I'd plan on encouraging/empowering others to do the same.
The success of all of us will not hinge on any of us individually, but by the collective.
- What would a successful 120 day term look like to you, i.e. what do you hope the council will be able to accomplish?
Success at the end of 120 days will be a foundation that others can add to and grow with.
I'd like to step away in 120 days knowing we're in a great place where the next wave of leaders can take over and drive us forward.
Regular coms with the DAA core team, a continued/improved commitment to DICS a community that is proud to rock the pfp that I'd never change.
