Exploring and addressing educational, personal, and social pressures through reflection and growth regarding failure.

For my project, I spoke about educational pressures, addressing different strains and how I learned and navigated through such pressure. The challenge that my project addresses is societal and personal pressures; for everyone, these pressures can be different, but we all face some stress from dealing with these pressures. In the end, I was able to create a PowerPoint addressing my topic; it wasn’t just a regular PowerPoint; it also has audio, so while watching the presentation, you can hear me talk and explain the slides. The border impacts of this project were more personal to me; I’ve had a very toxic relationship with doing well in school, grades, exams, and the entire education system as a whole. The biggest takeaway from my involvement in this project is that I learned so much more about myself that I would have never known unless comping this project. Doing this has made me more well-rounded, and I can confidently say I feel closer to myself since I have acknowledged, addresses, and dealt with this issue. Working through the PEARL process was okay for me because it is similar to one that I use already; it wasn’t one that I learned but one that I can acquire through the years. I never thought to add Leverage to the process, but it was enjoyable learning about it. Lastly, other students should get involved in projects like this because once you ned the project with a badge to show off their accomplishments. Having a badge sets you aside from other applicants, and also you might learn more about yourself when completing the project’ which is always a good takeaway; learning better than you were when you started.
