I did my TED talk on Friday. I thought it went pretty well. But i don't know if my grade will be very good. I hope that it will be good because i was confident in my presentation. I talked about my fails over the year and all the ideas i had. I was the last person so i felt a little rushed because the lunch bell had rang. I felt like i had a good stage presence, and that I was loud enough.
 This is my last post on this blog. A big thank you to those who have been coming back to this blog. Thank you a lot to my biggest supporters Mr.eckert and Mrs. hellwig! They made this an opportunity to help the world and inspire people. I did waste this opportunity and im very upset about this because it was such an amazing opportunity. All schools should do this. It really inspired alot of people.

So i'm thinking of Holding two focus groups. One for older people and younger people to see how people of different ages react and respond. I believe that I will get different results based on age and experience. I definitely look forward to this and seeing the results. I will be sending out a paper to teachers in my grade and have then ask if students want to sign up.  If they do sign up i will have hold the group on Tuesday, April 28.

20% show case

I recently had the idea show case at my school.
It went really well despite the fact that i made my poster 15 minutes before the showcase. People were actually interested in my project. Which came as a shock because i didn't think that my project was that big of deal. people signed up to be my mentor. And a crap ton of people signed up to be in my focus group. So that was pretty exciting. But genuinely I was happy that I got to miss most of my core classes. A lot of people had questions about what I want to accomplish by doing this, and I didn't know how to answer this. I improvised most of the time when they asked me this question.  By the end of the session I had finally came up with a solid answer. I want to show people that things are bigger than their stereotypes, that even though you say your perspective on life isn't altered by stereotypes it most likely is.

So after lots of debating about what i want to do for my project, i finally decided that i want to do something that was important to me. My new and final project is why school dress codes are gender bias. Many girls at my school have been pulled aside for their shirts not covering their butts when their wearing leggings. Why should we pull aside people from their education instead of teaching the boys to control themselves. So im starting a petition to change the dress code so that its not only targeted toward girls.

Nurses For New Borns

For my 20% time project finding my topic was a struggle. I wanted to do something big, so people could remember that one time that one girl did that one thing. I gambled on the thoughts of doing a big fundraiser, A luncheon, and even a 5k. I soon after realized that all of these were to big of a job for a small school project. I finally decided to do something I've done before but then make it bigger and better, A baby drive. When i was in third grade I was obsessed with babies. I realized that at food drives no one donates baby food. So i decided  to do a fund raiser dedicated to babies and babies only. If you are feeling generous please donate any thing form the Nurses for New Born Missouri site link here-Click here for the Nurses for New Born Missouri wish list. And then send it to 630 south elm Webster groves 63119.
Thanks for the time you took out of your busy lifes to read this!
