job interview reflection


  1. How did you feel while you interviewed a classmate?  Do you believe that seeing an interview from the employer’s perspective makes you more prepared or not?  Please explain.      I felt like i had to come up with answers on the spot and It stumped me a few times
  2. How did you feel while you were interviewed by a classmate?  Did you feel anxious, nervous, scared, prepared, overwhelmed, confident, etc.?  Please explain why you felt that way.    i was overwhelmed because for most of the questions were difficult to answer them on the spot without thinking about them first
  3. How do you feel about your responses?  Do you think your responses to the questions were adequate or do you feel you could have done better? What question did you find easy?  What question did you find difficult to answer? i could’ve done better but i was overwhelmed because i had no time to think before i spoke and gave answers.
  4. What advice would you give someone who is participating in a mock interview or a real interview? What advice would you give yourself; in other words, how do you think you could improve for your real interview? I would say to come prepared to answer tricky questions or prepare prior to the interview with questions that may be asked in the interview
  5. Yes, I know these mock interviews weren’t real, so imagine how you would perform in the interview if it was real.  What have you learned you need to do to be better prepared?  How should you dress for an interview?  How should you behave before, during, and after an interview?  What should you bring with you to an interview? i need to practice because i need to get a job soon. I would bring my resume, cover letter. Be on time, Be respectful and polite to the interviewer
  6. Evaluate the activity.  Be honest.  What do you think was good about this class activity?  How do you think we could improve this activity for next time, next year? Do you believe this is a skill you do need or do not need in real life?  Please explain. This was a good class activity because it can prepare students for what to expect when interviewing for a job. I believe this is beneficial because we are 16 and many of us are applying for jobs and entering the workforce .
  7. Take one of the 20 interview questions below and write a response that would be GOOD and one that would be BAD, then explain the difference with reasoning. It’s always good to practice job interview questions so that you become more and more comfortable. How do you feel about working with others as a team ? GOOD: While i prefer to work by myself, I am willing to work with others in order to complete a task BAD um, well i sorta don’t like it but like ill do it if have to.

job shadowing reflection

  1. I learned from my presentation that this experience was worth it in determining what career i may go into.
  2. I think i  did a good job on my multimedia, as for my presentation, i think I did well knowing how nervous presenting makes me. you could see and hear how nervous I was.
  3.  Some presentation methods i can include in other projects is that I spoke clearly and loudly.
  4. I wouldn’t have changed anything: I think i did pretty well on my multimedia and presenting. Maybe i can try to overcome the fear of presenting
  5. I wish i could have been less nervous, if i could present again i wouldn’t  freak out about it. Now that i have reflected, I am happy with my presentation

black history month

A sad/ solemn time in black history was the rosewood massacres of January 1, 1923- January 7, 1923. Events leading up to the massacre included a Ku Klux Klan rally on December 31, 1922, A white teacher’s murder in February of 1922 in the nearby town of Perry. “The final straw” the nearby white communities had was the rumor that a white woman, Fanny Taylor, was raped and assualted in her home near the predominantly black community of rosewood. As soon as whites in predominantly white towns heard of this news, 25-50 white men arrived in rosewood and started the pillaging,killing, and destruction of rosewood.  Many of the residents of rosewood fled to the nearby swamps to hide from the destruction of their community, homes, and all they new in their safe community. However, on January 6,1923 local train conductors John and William Bryce, escaped the majority of the stranded residents helped them escape north to cities such as Gainesville, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Atlanta.After the traumatic event, rosewood was then abandoned with former black residents scattered throughout the state of Florida, and throughout the southern sates. In 1993, the Floridian government rewarded each of the 14 remaining survivors with 150,000 dollars each. This event shows the resiliance and strength of the African american people and shows that from all of their years of being held back in America, they rose above and are now perservering       Image result for rosewood massacre   photo taken on  January 7,1923  in Rosewood,Fl

Social issue

The social issue I chose was the legalization of physician assisted suicide/ euthanasia. This is a current issue because there is debate on whether ending a terminally ill patient’s life on their request is humane or the right thing to do because this will end them and their families pain and suffering. Most lives that have been ended by euthanasia were that of cancer patients. I think the solution to end the tension around this subject is to legalize physician assisted suicide(euthanasia) everywhere. I believe it is a humane and ethical option for someone that has been caused suffering and pain from terminal Illness or mental illness. The pros of legalized euthanasia would that the terminally ill would die in dignity and not suffer a painful slow death. Euthanasia would also save medical funds that can be used on other patients. Others argue against euthanasia by stating that the legalization of euthanasia would lead a “slippery slope into legalizing non voluntary euthanasia, or even murder”. Another argument against legal euthanasia  is that I devaluates human life and the rights of a human.

Any other arguments for euthanasia suggested would be appreciated. What can I include or change to have a strong argument?

Play doh creation

I created a detailed snowflake as the colder months/winter and fall have a special place in my heart. To me, the dormant months represent reflection and tranquility. When the first leaves begin to change,  the crispness and sharpness of the air, the first snowfall,  the dark, chilly, windy, mysterious nature of autumn and winter captivate me and calm me with their dark, cold, short days. I feel that if I was to be a season, I would be autumn or winter;  because in a way, i see myself in the stretch of months bridging the warmer, brighter, green seasons or spring and summer. I was also born in February which is in the dead of winter. Other people also made things that they see themselves in or things and activities in which they are passionate about such as a sport, a career aspiration, an accomplishment and so on and so forth. Making this sculpture made me think about the poetic nature of the colder months and how it relates to my personality and how it relates to winter and autumn. Originally, I was going to do a straight, emotionless expressive face. The reason for this is because ever since this school year started, that is one of the only emotions I feel on a daily basis. But then I thought to myself that I would come off as monotonous, catty, mean, or just boring; in which, there is some truth to that. But then I thought it would be slightly less boring to write about my love for the cold

support for euthanasia for terminally ill patients

In the past few years,  states such as Oregon, Montana, Washington, Vermont, California, Colorado, And Washington DC have legalized assisted suicide for terminally ill patients whos condition is worsening with time and wish to end their lives peacefully to end their suffering. I support assisted suicide/euthanasia because is sets the patient and their families free of pain and suffering. I think this is a ethical and humane choice for someone that has spent the remainder of their lives in agony and suffering in a treatment home or in a hospital room. It wouldn’t be fair if we don’t allow terminally ill people take control of their own bodies and conditions and let them end them and their families pain and suffering. Death is a human right and should be left in the patients hands on how they handle their condition. It is better to  legalize it and regulate it rather than to just ban it completely. Death may not always be a bad thing. Limiting a terminally ill patient of their rights or request is a violation of their rights and human rights; which is not fair. Someone that is suffering and that has been suffering should not be told to do with their life.
