CAS eFolio Plan 2012/13

Click Here

This is my CAS eFolio Plan for 2012/13, I actually made this awhile ago and forgot to post it! I tried to focus on details and reflection in this plan so that not only do I satisfy the CAS requirements but also stay true to myself and my personal goals.

Jolee’s Swim meet

Swimmers

I took this about midway through the swim meet

On Jan. 22nd, I volunteered at Jolee’s Personal Project- a swim meet for schools in the Vancouver area. I was in charge of food and photography along with Claire, Cam, and Micaela for the whole meet. This was pretty fun for me because I love photography and food was easy to coordinate, as Jolee’s mom was a big help. It was her job for the whole meet to help out in the hospitality room where the food was kept, so Claire and I didn’t really have to help out that much. I think it was a success because everything went according to plan and there was nothing missed. Next time Jolee does a swim meet, count me in!

Jhr News Reflection

One really cool article I’ve read lately from JHR is about a boy the same age as me, 15, in Sierra Leone who built his own FM transmitter for his own radio station! He had previously figured out how to power lights and provide electricity by making his own batteries, and he has now made his own radio station with him as the DJ, known as DJ Focus. The need for electricity is great in Sierra Leone, and even though the boy, (Kelvin)’s power only goes on once a week, it has a great impact on his community. His next project will be to create a windmill that will provide electricity to his community, and he is also the youngest person ever invited to the ‘Visiting Practitioner’s Program” at MIT! I’d say thats a pretty big accomplishment for someone so young.

We Day!

A couple of days ago I was lucky enough to go to We Day 2012! I could spend hours writing about it, but the main point I want to make is this: If you ever get a chance to go, GO! Many people didn’t go because we had another fieldtrip that day, or it seemed boring, or it seemed like it wouldn’t apply to them. But I just wanted to tell everyone that it DOES apply to everyone, and its really fun too! We got to hear from awesome speakers like Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Magic Johnson, Spencer West and more as well as hear singers like Demi Lovato, Shawn Desman, and My Name is Kay. I really enjoyed the mix of motivational speakers, singers, and personal stories that we got to hear throughout the day. The point of We Day is to leave feeling inspired and excited to make a difference in the world, something that I know I got from the experience. Looking forward to next year!
