Reporting back on a regular basis is a crucial part of your role as a Mozilla Rep. This involves documenting and sharing all your activities so that your mentor can see your progress and support you where needed, but also so that the broader community can have full visibility on all the amazing work that you are doing. This includes events you are organizing or participating in, the more that the experience is shared with others, the better. As a Mozilla Rep, it's really important for you to report about the events you're involved in by blogging, taking photos of their events and reporting back to your mentor and fellow Mozilla Reps.
