Find Your Passion
This task allowed me to think of myself from a different perspective. Normally when I talk about myself I just talk about characteristics such as "athletic" or "outgoing", and what I like to do and want to do in the future as a career. But this project made me think deeper, and what are things that I live by or work towards. It also offered me the perspective of how my loved one, feels how I view myself which helped me internalize and compare what I feel about myself, and how other people view what I feel about myself.
Learn, Solve, Make, Do!
At the beginning of this part, I had a bit of a hard time thinking of ideas on what to include in my organizer, but with the help of “Find Your Passions”, I looked back at what inspired me and what I enjoyed doing to help incorporate in creating different ideas that not only interested me but could be useful for me in the future. Some help with an idea came from my mom who helped my collaboration piece in “Find Your Passions” who gave me the idea of the children’s book about baseball because I enjoy baseball and want to inform others.
I found this project to be very helpful. I was able to narrow down the projects to do by internally asking myself how well and elaborate could I have answered the questions asked in order to deem the ideas worthy of being used. At the beginning of the task, I knew what my end product was going to be, but the worksheet helped me understand why I even wanted to do them in the first place. By collaborating with my twin brother on this part and letting him read over and provide feedback, I was able to see and understand what my peers would be looking for in terms of a finished product: How I will get there, How I will show the steps to get there, and how might I fund the process and for the sake of the podcast/blog idea, who I should collaborate with.
This task was able to help me narrow down exactly what I was planning on accomplishing. Between each of the three projects I was choosing from in Project Design, the questions asked from the proposal worksheet, allowed me to ask myself the question "Is this really a project that not only can be done in the time given but can someone else get something out of my work?" From there, I was able to determine that the children's book was most practical in order to ask the question I had asked myself, and helped me get an idea of how I will work with others, create the project itself, and what I want it to look like in the end.
