Week 1

Today marks the end of my first week of Empowered at GlowTouch. I have learned many helpful things along the way. For this first week I would have to say the most challenging thing I had to face was learning the codes. Learning the code at first was difficult but once I got use to them it became second nature.

While working with Treehouse this week I have learned a lot of new and interesting things. One of the most interesting things I have learned was the Codes themselves. The reason the codes are my favorite is because of how cool I find it that simple and easy numbers letters and symbols can create something amazing in the end. My favorite code would have to be <a href=”link”target=_blank></a>. The reason i like this one is because this very long code does the most simplest thing, opens the link selected in a new tab.

Today we had a guest speaker, Ms. Fitzpatrick. Ms. Fitzpatrick came to speak to us about young black empowered girls, such as herself, and how it is important for us to gather the tools we need to make a difference in this world. Another think that stood out to me was the statement that had been said about how important relations are in this world. Relations in this world is like water to your body you need it to live and be successful. Relations can bring you a lot of great opportunities  in the world of business. When you are at a job interview and someone with a lot more experience but you have all the connections and relations, nine times out of ten you will get that job.

My biggest challenge over all would be adjusting to the nine to five schedule. I am use to getting up early but I’m not use to not being able to take naps when I get tired. The way I have worked through this problem was to get up walk around or just simple eat or play with my fidgeting toys.

Overall I would have to say that my first week of Empowered was very productive.

Week 2

Dr. Johnson. A great inspiration. Dr. Johnson came this week as a guest speaker. She came and talked about the project she is working on. Dr. Johnson is trying to recreate cocula implants.

Another speaker this week was Mrs. Salvo and she spoke upon her business wild. Over all week two was and success. I had completed HTML and started HTML and CSS.

Week 3

This week we had two wonderful speakers. being in empowered has taught me so much on how to live and i’ve learned so much. it seems as if each week that i here  learned something new about the people i’m with and myself.

Week 4

This week was a week i couldn’t remember to well. we had a break on the 4TH because of independence day and i just can’t seem to put my weeks together. i do know that we had a guest speaker who was amazing and one of her programs called Lemonade Day i’ve done before. this week we came to see we need to do more team building things to better know each other.

Week 5

This week I was out of town. My family and I visited Nashville’s Opryland the music resort. But when I had got back we worked on Swift Play.

Week 6

This week we focused more on finishing everything we had worked on this whole summer. We also said goodbye to one of our workers and did 3D printing.
