20% Time Reflection

Ted talks have been completed, and so has 20% time. I loved doing 20% time, it taught me so much aboub t responsibility and pushing myself. I loved doing this project because it was so different than others. I love Creating a New Future, and I cant wait to go far with this. I remember pitch day, how nervous I was, and how much I thought they would deny my idea. When they accepted it, I was so ready to jump into the project. I remember Idea Showcase, and how I thought that my board wasnt good enough. All memories I have of 20% time make me happy, and I am so thankful that we did this. It helped me in so many, educational wise. Creating a New Future will go so far. I am happy 20% time helped me do what I want to do in life.

Preparing for Ted Talks

Ted Talks are in a week from today. I need to prepare a presentation and note cards for what I am going to be saying. I have finished my note cards, so all I need to do is work on my presentation. There won't be a lot of slides at all. I am not going to be talking through the presentation, I am going to be talking to my audience. I will be talking about how I started, my inspiration, my mentor, what I will be doing, the camp, working up to the camp, and more. I am very prepared for this, and I am pretty excited. If you would like to see my ted talk, go to this link http://hixsonharmonyteam.blogspot.com/ you can see it after next Friday.

My Website

I have created a website for my project. I am still working on it, so it isn't finished. Although, it is going to be very cool. The website has all the dates and details you will need. After I am done, I will post the link, so anyone who wants to see the website can do so. This is my website in the making. The final product will be here soon!

Currently

Ted Talk

The next step to my 20% time project is the Ted Talk. I am pretty nervous, but I feel like I am prepared. I have a lot of things to talk about that is interesting. Hopefully people will like my presentation. I have to be on the stage for 4-9 minutes, so I was planning on making flash cards to say, to make things easier for me.  I am so proud of my progress with this project, and I think things are going great. I've met with people to make this camp, and the details. I have gotten supplies, and more. Please come to this camp!! If you know anybody who wants to come, please contact me at @ellaghuertas.gmail.com

Getting Started

I am so excited to really start this camp. I just recently had a meeting with my mentor, talking about what we need to do. We are both so excited!! We need to get snacks, games, and instruments obviously! It's good though because I am very prepared. I am putting out flyers so people can come, and maybe put up a website. I will give out my mom and my mentors phone number so people can call or ask questions. Tell people about my camp! I'll be having more blogs soon.

The Idea Showcase

Yesterday was the idea showcase, and I thought it was going to be very scary, but in reality it was a lot of fun. Many people came up to my poster and they all seemed to like it. The principal of Hixson liked my idea, too! Parker Hagemann was my next to me, and she had a really cool idea, as well. ( Go see her blog, it's awesomeswimcaps.blogspot.com ) I was very satisfied with this day. I felt very comfortable with my project, and the idea showcase was a lot of fun! outube
