I created a white stool with a storage area underneath. I succeeded in cutting everything exact so everything fits together perfectly. However, I didn’t know how to drill holes so the holes were not very exact. But I was also able to problem solve many things. At first, I decided to make a chair, but then the I realized that the screws were not going to hold the back, so I changed my idea to a stool. I drilled one of my holes to close to the edge, so the wood would most likely split when I put the screw in, so I decided to drill the hole from the other side to meet with the original hole. In the Future, I will have to overcome many problems and challenges, so I must have the skill to problem solve. This L21 skill is the most important in my opinion because this skill will be used anywhere, anytime, and with anything.
On September 13 and September 14, my classmates and I went on a great mentoring trip to ShiMenShan. The purpose was to connect with nature, conquer our fears, and work on core values. Throughout the trip, I noticed that my collaboration skills were quite strong. While building a bamboo raft with my group, I collaborated well with them. We were extremely efficient, we got the raft ready in time, and we built it with great quality. However, I wasn’t the “leader” of my group. I think that I could have helped guide my group more throughout the process. In the near future, I will work on my leadership skills and help others as much as I can. Overall, the trip and made me a stronger person, I conquered my fear on the wall, and learned many useful skills. It was a great experience!

What is a painful thing that you experienced?
My cat died 2 months ago. In the morning after I woke up, she wasn’t moving. I toke her to the doctor to check why she wasn’t moving. After 15 minutes I received the shocking news that she has passed away. She was 12 years old and she died peacefully. I was very sad but I knew couldn’t change things. I didn’t go to school for 2 days and missed out on some important subjects.
I wouldn’t take away the experience, because I could learn from the experience and the next time it happens, I would be able to control the situation.
The one day project was a great experience for me. But there was one problem that kept happening as I started over and over again. I was making a crochet blanket and the blanket kept on going inwards. So I decided to ask one of the teachers. My teacher told me that I have missed a few stitches so I started over and I followed the teachers instructions. I finished my project at the last minute of the day and it was a big success.
