Week 1

Being a part of Empowered is definitely something that every minority teenage girl should take advantage of, not only is it a great experience, but it’s also an experience that will help you expand your academic and personal skills. Within a week it’ll push you to do better each and everyday, instead of staying in the same predicament.

One of the most helpful opportunities Empowered has to offer, as far as academically, is learning how to code in order to create a website. Given that most schools don’t have coding classes. Although coding is a challenging subject to learn it is also a really useful thing to have knowledge of.

Being that there are individuals here to talk to us about how important it is to stay focus on education and that there is no such thing as learning “too much”, means a lot because those are the type of people that everyone should have in their life.

Week 2

By the end of this enjoyable and miraculous empowered program, not only do I want to have a greater insight on coding but a better grasp on how confident I can be with every life-changing opportunity comes my way.

This goal isn’t impossible because there are many individuals around that I know who’s willing to help in any way possible. Working towards this goal isn’t gonna be hard as long as I’m  open to take on new opportunities and continue to stay EMPOWERED!

Week 3

Every since I’ve had the opportunity to learn and understand coding, I’ve realized that if I take step by step challenge then I could accomplish anything. My mind set went from “I don’t know if I can do this” to “Let’s do this even if it may seem impossible.

Each and everyday I appreciate Empowered giving me a chance to discover traits inside myself that I didn’t know was there.

Week 4

Now that I am working on 3 different projects, it keeps me busy. If there’s complications with one website, then it’s simple to work on my other two.

I can now listen to music while I work on two of my websites, which is good because it gives me an energy boost. Once you get the hang of everything, it’s a breeze.

Week 5

Stressful week!

Being that my partner and I had to switch our theme THREE different times, was what made the cup overflow.  I realized that it takes patience and determination when it comes to creating a website for someone who doesn’t have a clear vision on what their desires are.

BUT overall my week ended well, being that I had an opportunity to meet the lieutenant governor and walk on the Big Four Bridge, with a few co-workers.

Week 6

I DID IT! I DID IT!! (Doe Anderson presentation)

I really surprised myself and my peers, by the way I explaining my content and my speaking voice. The only reason why I did so well with the presentation, was because I practice before I went to sleep and on my way to work.

The only two things I would change: Come in front of the screen and make sure I cover everything I practiced. With practice, these two things will be mastered!
