Through this program, I have learned valuable things that will help support my continuation in the educational field. Most importantly, I have ignited a new love of learning within myself, and I am eager to share my new discoveries with my colleagues. I don't think that I can change the world, but I can try to instill my love of learning to my students and nephews. I want to share my story that anything is possible regardless of your background. If you take one step forward, naturally you'll take another and so on. Thus is how I have moved through the intimidated program, one step at a time and I can see the finish line after a few hurdles I need to jump.

Reading some of the assigned articles to support our capstone video was helpful. I like how the article from "Psychology Today" said that the brain is an image processor, it can remember images because they are more concrete. Words are abstract and harder to retain, which explains why I forget peoples' names quickly, but I never forget a face (most of the time).
