What was the most challenging and interesting part about your second week?
I started my website this week, and it has proven to be both fun and challenging. It is fun to have the freedom to be able to do the website the way that I want. Despite the fact, it is stressful at times because there isn’t a Guil to guide me on what I need to do. Overall, it is an amazing, kind of out-of-body experience to be able to WRITE CODE for a website! Never in a million years would I have been able to do this two weeks ago.
What was your biggest take-away from both speakers?
Both speakers were very inspiring. One, Stacey Servio (sp), is all about women empowerment and the environment. The other, Angelique Johnson, created a new type of cochlear implant. I was inspired by both of our speakers, but Dr. Johnson really made me feel that I could do anything. I want to go into medical/pharmaceutical research and possibly open my own business, so seeing her do BOTH makes me feel hopeful.
Biggest thing you have learned about yourself this week?
I learned again that I am capable of any and everything. I have so much potential in subjects that I didn’t know I had the capacity for. I keep surprising myself the more time goes on, and I can’t wait to see what else I am capable of.
