1. What have you learned so far in your work in the Makerspace?
In the Makerspace so far I’ve learned how to speak up more. I’ve been able to work on my presentation & communication skills. For example, with our Vacant Lot presentation slides I’ve been having to contribute my part and showing what I’ve done to our supervisors. This requires speaking up and explaining what exactly I did. That alone has helped me so much with my communication skills.
2. Based on what you have done so far, what do you think is your greatest strength and why?
At this point where I am in Makerspace my greatest strength I would say is my determination to work. When I’m assigned something, I take my time to make sure it’s good enough to be seen by my mentors & my peers.
3. What skill would you like to develop over the remainder of the program?
Over the rest of this program I would love to develop my time management skills. I do get my work done yes, but sometimes I do procrastinate & lose track of time which doesn’t benefit me in the long run, especially with our write ups or presentations.
4. How has it been collaborating with your peers on-line?
I would say it hasn’t been too bad. It’s actually pretty engaging. It is hard at times to communicate with one another, but we have overcome that, and we’re able to keep in contact with each other.
5. How has the feedback you have received from mentors affected your thoughts about your projects?
The feedback I’ve received from my mentors has personally helped me notice my mistakes and what I need to fix. It has allowed me to become a better writer and a better presenter overall. I still am progressing with my projects, but I do believe with the help of my mentors & peers I have been able to learn and grow.
6. What are you looking forward to for the rest of the program?
I’m looking forward to seeing how all of our projects progress and how far we have come with it all. All the hard work and time we have put into these projects will put a smile on our stakeholders’ and mentors’ faces.
