So, this week I found out that my Empowered partners and I are going to make documentaries. These are no mere documentaries though. No sir, these are STEAM/STEM-related documentaries, and they are going to be amazing!! My partner is the wonderful Victoria Brown. We decided to call ourselves Tori^2 (Tori Squared). This power team decided to make a documentary based on women in Biomedical Engineering. Honestly, it took a bit of trial and error when choosing our topic, but it all worked out in the end. I feel like this process will go very well, and the end result will be astonishing!
To wrap up Last weeks events, we started on Swift Playgrounds, which is a coding app from apple. Although it got tough sometimes, I worked through every exercise until I got a solution. We also had the wonderful speaker, Dr. Tanya Franklin, who is an OB/GYN. She gave many great pointers about life and how to grow as a person. One piece of advice that stuck out to me was “If you show confidence & positive energy, people will want to reach out to you and help you. Her overall lesson was to show that you have CONFIDENCE!
I really enjoyed this week and I’m looking forward to the next one.
