Christmas Dinner Giveaway - Global Peace

 During my time at GCE I have gained a better understanding of the privilege I hold in today's society, and also how to use that privilege to stand up for others when I see injustices. 

This project is for my Global Peace class. This class is structured around Gandhi and his peaceful protest philosophies. The project is to come up with a plan that will address an issue in my neighborhood, Woodlawn. This plan will be a way that peacefully protests against the issue. The issue that I am going to address is food deserts. My neighborhood was known as a food desert for almost 50 years until there was a Jewel-Osco built about 2 years ago. My plan is to provide Christmas dinner meals for the people in this community who are unable to afford or have the time to cook these meals. I partnered with Exquisite catering to cook the meals. Exquisite catering is a black owned business that is run by Chef Tiffany Williams. (Click here to visit her website)

I am happy for the opportunity to help out in my neighborhood. With this project I want to treat these families with respect. I don't want them to feel like this is a charity but rather a night off from providing dinner.

Gender Stereotypes & Wage Gap

  Gender equality, or rather inequality, has been a conflicting argument for a very long time, all over the world. Gender inequality has affected how people think of women, including boys and men to make them think it is alright to objectify women. Women are often not given enough credit for the work they do and become undervalued and “tend to stagnate in their careers”(Pay Scale). Gender wage gap refers to the fact that a certain gender has a higher wage than the other, in modern day it is usually the male gender that gets the higher pay. On average, “women still make only $0.79 for every dollar men make in 2019”(Pay Scale). The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, are trying to accomplish gender equality and, as the UN states, “end all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere” which includes the wage gap.   Stereotypes have influenced children everywhere today and have corrupted their minds with how they think they should act. A stereotype

Golden Snub-nosed Monkey

Welcome to my blog! This is my first STEAM action project as a sophomore. The STEAM class this term is called Population. In this class, we discussed set theory, taxonomy, Venn diagrams, dichotomous keys, and how all of these let us organize facts about organisms, which helps us learn more about them. In this action project, I was asked to replicate an image of one of my favorite animals into a photo collage. The animal I used for my project is the golden snub-nosed monkey. Along with the photo collage, I included the taxonomy of the monkey. I also compared some of the animals that my classmates were assigned with. Collectively, we created a Venn diagram, a dichotomous key, and some set theory. I wanted to tell a story about a monkey while including the different categories listed above. Below you will find the story of Sebastian, a Golden snub-nosed monkey. The story tells you what it is like living as a Golden snub-nosed monkey. This includes the behaviors, diets, sizing, and other f

Interview Simulator

 This term, I have taken a class called Computer Science, online like all my other classes. In this class we have been working with different codes like binary, python, and if statements within python. I have created an if statement code. In this code, I have created an interview simulator. I was asked to create a chatbot, like this one , but I decided to take it one step further and create a chatbot that would allow one to pretend they are in a simulator being asked questions that one would be asked in an interview. I know that whenever I have been in an interview, I get nervous. I decided to create something that would hopefully help someone who has a similar experience as me.      As I made this code, I had to overcome some complications and difficulties, but I was able to better understand those complications with the help of my classmates and teacher. I think that out of all of my online classes Computer Science was the most favorable. I was able to understand what I was learni
