We previously shared the experiences and observations of high school student and WEAVE Intern Emily . Today we share the conclusion and outcome of her project.
On May 9th I completed the second part to my project. I put together a PowerPoint on human trafficking to educate the students in my Advisory at my high school.
The students were very respectful while I presented and I got many questions. It was very different from any other presentation I have done at my high school. I could feel the students were intrigued and it was fun for me to be able to talk about what I was learning at WEAVE.
When I had finished presenting I had many students come up to me and say that they liked what I was doing and had interests in getting an Internship like mine at WEAVE. One student asked me to send her my PowerPoint and even got emotional and talked about how the information I was giving them could relate to her life.
I honestly believe that students like myself getting involved and educating other students makes a huge difference. I am definitely going to keep sharing what I know with people in my life.
