We can use the principles of entrepreneurship to meet a local or global need by focusing on one or more sustainable development goals. An successful social entrepreneurs can make enough profit to support their business and can make a difference in the mean time. The problems we are trying to solve are helping endangered animals by trying to support them with money in order for the organizations who help them to have more money to support them. How we met this goal is by trying to sell needle felts and crochet. We first come up with our idea of making needle felts, then about some days later we somehow thought about endangered animals and then decided to help them. We made some market research about the demand for needle felting and found that it wasn’t crazily high but it was high enough. We also found that the cost of the materials to make needle felt is not very high but the benefits(money we can earn) is quite high. Then we started finding organization in order to donate our profit. Then we realized that there is no organization that help both land and water endangered animals during the searching process. So we finally decided to choose the organization CMA(Clear Water Marine Aquarium) which help water animals. After discussing in our group, we made the decision to donate half of our money to CMA and donate another half to smile week. Smile week is also an organization who helps babies and children with Cleft Palate instead of animals. After all the researches and hard works, We started selling needle felts the first day. When we realized we have a lot of felt left over form needle felts, we decided to make crochet to reduce the waste created. We put the felts we left over into the crochet to make something like a squeeze ball, then we sell it on the second day and third day, together with the needle felts. The Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) we focused on for this unit is Life Below Water. After three days we managed to sell most of our product out even though the demand were not really high. In the end we earned a total profit 1260 RMB and I was pretty proud of myself being able to earn this much in only three days and only sells during lunch.
This time in One Day, me, Stephanie and Akari chooses to create DIY skincare for the whole day. We created bath bomb, lip balm and soap. During creating the products we had some challenges but at last we overcome it, and I am so proud of what we created.
The challenges that we have is that the soap can’t really melt and instead it would just burn. Also we don’t have all the materials that we need to make the bath bomb because we can’t find it at Jenny and BHG. We overcome those challenges by for the soap we added water while we were melting it so it would be more moisturized and easier to melt and at last it melted/dissolved. For the lack of materials we borrowed some material that we need from other groups in order to create the product.
After today I learned that for everything we do, we should do it with patient and be ready to fix it over and over again. Also I learned for every failure there would be a way to fix it/make it better. Also for the materials or anythings that we would need to prepare, we need to prepare it earlier, because there is a chance that we can’t find it at shop and need to buy it somewhere else like online.
What would I do differently than this time if I could do it again is that I would buy the materials earlier and try more type of soap to see if it would melt or not.
After this time I think that DIY product and Store Bought product all have their own advantages and disadvantages. For DIY product you could make it using the materials you want and add the scent you like and after making it, when you find out that it worked out you would feel very proud/makes you feel good. For the Store Bought product it would look much better than DIY products(This might not be true if you are a pro at making those things.) and it might be cheaper and also it’s more easier to get.

In conclusion I learned a lot and have so many fun in One Day.
One Day 2017
I wasn’t here on one day but If I was here I would work with Olivia and Stephanie on the Using recycle things to make object such as towers.
What did you create?
As I said I wasn’t here on one day but my teammates created a pencil container and a plant pot and a thing with no name.
What were your successes?
I wasn’t here on one day so I am not really sure of our success, but I think our success is being able to finish making those things, because we just started collecting recycling stuff the day before one day since we changed our plan.
What were your challenges?
I was not sure what’s they think are our challenges but I think our challenges is being able to think of a project that could work.
What was your impact and/or will you continue with anything from ONEday in the future?
Our impact is letting other people know how important is recycling and that how many things recycling stuff can make so please do not throw them away to make garbage & pollution( if you burn it).I will continue to make pencil container and plant pot using plastic bottles from one day in the future.
Sugar free week:
After sugar free week:
This week we did something that I think is really challenging. It’s called sugar free week, what we do is that you need to eat nothing with sugar in it for a week, but you could eat fruit and fruit juice if you make it with nothing except fruit. I think I have failed , because in the first tow days I don’t know if the lunch at cafeteria has been added sugar or not, I tried to eat the lunch I think that it has no sugar in it. I thought it doesn’t have sugar in the pizza, but truth prove me wrong… we could’t eat pizza, I know that because then I find a chart that tells us what we should/shouldn’t eat in sugar free week.
I used to drink icetea at lunch but now I would pick milk, yogurt, fresh juice or watermelon at lunch time instead of icetea. I would tell my family to eat less sugar and make a healthier food choice. I would try to let them add less sugar in the food they make. I think the thing we need to change at school is tell us how many sugar is in the food that we sale.
I have learned a lot in this unit, and it’s very useful to me because I know more about the bad thing of eating too much sugar and also it’s helps me to make more healthier food choice in the future.
Me, Olivia , Stephanie we did the project on environment, We do this is because we want to impact the environment, we knew that we couldn’t impact the whole world but we want to impact a small compound .
our action plan is to plant the seed that we brought from the flower shop at Olivia’s home front yard, and take care of the trees that we could take care.
The proof of Impact for our project is that the environment is getting worsted every year and their are less and less compound that has good afforestation , we want to Impact a small compound.
The sustainability for our project is that to look that the tree we take care of was being better or worst, looking at that if the plant we plant live.
In Conclusion I think we did a pretty great job on this unit, because we did success, the plant we plant survived and the trees we take care was better than before.

At my student led conference, my parent got out a lot of information, I showed and told them about the learning 21, mathematic, reading, writing, science, social study.
I also shows them the piktochart, which I write about what I does well or improved and the things I need to improved on innovation and creativity, leadership and responsibility, communication and collaboration, global thinking inquiry, critical thinking and problem solving.
I think the SLC really goes well, My gaol for the next two month is to improve my mathematic and listen more carefully.
I learn what should we eat or drink to make our human body system healthy. I also learn about how do our body work or what do my body system do, what was the system called, what does the part in the system called ,I learn the most about is the respiratory system, cause I was doing the respiratory system.
I think I have done a great job on my human body project, because that I have introduce the system properly I have introduce it fully and create a game for my audience. I think I and my partner work together very good is because that we work together and we have assign our work equal.
I like the part working on the system project with my partner because that it was fun and we learn a lot of things together, I do not like the part that we write our report, because sometime we couldn’t find good website so we will not write a very good report cause we couldn’t find the good information, I think if we could talk with a partner then it will be perfect.
