Week 1

During my first day of Empowered I have learned so much already. The most interesting thing for me while doing Treehouse is learning how to change the headings. I thought it was interesting to let the browsers know which things were more important and which things were least important by using <h1> </h1> and <h6> </h6> . Using coding is a fun way of learning because it has a type of pattern to it. Patterns creates a better understanding for others in myself. Coding is also a good way of organizing things which can make websites more interesting to look at.

Week 2

This was everyone’s second week of Empowered, but it was my first full week. I have accomplished a lot over the last couple of days. I was stuck on a few things when first learning HTML. The most difficult thing that I had difficulty doing was adding images to the website. Sometimes the images wouldn’t show up the way that Treehouse had taught us. On the bright side my favorite part of this weeks Treehouse was learning CSS. I like Cascading Style Sheets because it adds creativity to the blog, webpage and or website. It makes everything so colorful and bright. It gets the people more interested in actually reading what the website has to say. Another thing that happened this week is that i completed HTML and The introduction of HTML and CSS. I am now working on CSS basics so that I can begin working on creating my own website which might end up being a website for my step mom for a surprise for her new business. My biggest takeaway from the guest speakers this week is always be who you are and learn how to learn. Dr Johnson told us girls that in able to succeed in something you first have to learn how to learn. Learning how to do something can become a challenge in the beginning but it ends up becoming very easy and fun. When something is being taught and learned you can used those things and apply it to something greater, bigger and more powerful. Another thing that she said that i took away was that we all need to create a brand that will make us unique and different from all the other brands out here!

Week 3

This is the third week of Empowered for me. We had a speaker come in today to speak about Design Basics. Her name is Ms. Rachel Grey.She was so inspirational when she was talking to us. Something she said that caught my eye was “Start experimenting now with different things and start small so you can get bigger.” This caught my eye because I am still unsure on what exactly I wanna do when I become older. I have so many things that I am interested in that makes me feel happy. If i could i will like to put all the things that I love to do kind of together. I am happy that i am in this summer program because this is me trying new things and starting small so that one day i can use all of the things that we are learning into something bigger in life.

Week 4

The “FOURTH” week of Empowered. Let me start by saying Happy Fourth of July. Today we are not working because it is a holiday. I am in Florida today on a family vacation. I will not be at work this week but i will still be learning new things. I went to Magic Kingdom and at night time they do a gigantic show with the castle that’s in the middle of the park. The show is nothing but fireworks and a video that shines on the castle. This made me think of the things we learned in Treehouse when applying CSS. while watching the show it made me think of how did they make the video, and how did they get the fireworks to be in sync to what the video was doing.

Week 5

This week, on July 09, 2018, we had a speaker named Dr. Franklin. The first thing she said that I took from her was “know your purpose.” She was speaking about where we see ourselves in a couple years and how will it take to get to those goals. I know that the things i want to do has to do with music, teaching, photography, art designs and fashion. She told us we “need to tackle the easy goals first before we tackle the hard one” while completing these goals we need to have time management during our tie in college because organization is important.

Week 6

This week we got into different groups again to create another website on Wix. We had to choose a topic of our interest and create a documentary on it.  On the 16th, my group Ashanti, Lily and I chose to do why the Arts is important in S.T.E.M. to create S.T.E.A.M and how arts should be used inside of the S.T.E.M programs. We chose this because we are all involved in the arts category with our music, acting, and drawing. We thought it would be a good idea to figure out why others don’t think it is that important to have.
