1. What have you learned so far in your work in the Makerspace?
During my time in the Makerspace program I have learned how to develop my teamwork skills. Usually I would prefer to work on my own but the maker space program has taught me to trust my coworkers. When I have worked with my coworkers Megan and Yamilet, they have added to my ideas and it ended up being something great.
2. Based on what you have done so far, what do you think is your greatest strength and why?
I think my greatest strength has to be patience. It has not been easy to work with so many people. Sometimes people aren’t always there physically; therefore, they don’t know what’s going on. For example, one time I was trying to get in touch with one of my coworkers because I wanted to know if I should add more to the slide, and they never answered.
3. What skill would you like to develop over the remainder of the program?
A skill that I hope to develop is to be more assertive and outspoken. Sometimes I get really nervous when I talk or I’m really shy. I want to be able to talk in front of a group of people whether it be online or in person and be confident in what I am saying.
4. How has it been collaborating with your peers on-line?
I can’t lie. It has been very difficult. Sometimes my peers won’t answer right away when I need to or are not sure what we have to do but when we put our heads in the game, the end product comes out good.
5. How has the feedback you have received from mentors affected your thoughts about your projects?
The feedback I have received has made me realize that I won’t always get it right away and that’s okay. It’s okay to make mistakes, and I love constructive criticism because it makes me perfect my craft.
6. What are you looking forward to for the rest of the program?
I am looking forward to growing and being able to have more confidence in myself. I would like to be able to get another job and excel.
