I decided to start a new project! However, I also decided to drop my old one. I realized while I was doing research for the old one, that I wasn’t as into it and passionate about it, so I decided to stop before I got to far into it. Once I talked to my teacher about why I dropped the first project, I instantly started to get to work on the new one.
While I was doing research for the first project, I started to talk to and make connections with some of my classmates. My one classmate that I got closer to, Cami Leyes, told me about her project and I really liked her idea. The idea was to create clothing and sell those clothes and whatever money that was made from what was sold will be donated to a soup kitchen or any other helpful organization. I asked her if she would be willing to have me as a partner on this project and she said yes. I joined her on this project on January 7, 2021, and on that day I got straight to work on doing the research.
I researched a local soup kitchen called Manna on Main Street and even contacted them to see what they may need from us in the future. Hopefully, if this project goes well, we can start donating to other soup kitchens and organizations as well. Once we get a design for our clothes, we will start promoting it on social media, at school, and I will even create an entirely new website for it as well. I am excited to start this new project and I can’t wait to update everyone on what my partner and I have accomplished so far.
