1)The most impactful presentation for me was about food insecurity in Ward 8; I believe this was in the "social injustice" room. This meant a lot to me because it taught me about D.C's poor urban planning and how people in ward 8 are vulnerable to more illnesses. I now know that more businesses need to be installed in ward 8 along with more transportation and better policies to increase the standard of living there.
2) I attended the discussion led by one senior in GWSB and one senior in Elliot. They both started their own businesses through GW resources, which taught me that there are tools in my school to help me with community engagement. I also learned that it is important to follow my passions and use D.C to apply what I learn at GW.
Question #1 Which showcase presentation was most impactful to you and why? (Be sure to upload a picture)

The presentation I decided to attend was D.C. 127. The people who presented D.C. 127 talked about how their goal was to help the poor in the surrounding area. They want to do this by improving the living conditions that the people are currently in. If these people have kids, they want to help their kids get a proper education so they can have the chance to go to college. This was really impactful for me as I did service for a program like this back in Philly.

Question #2 Which of the six sessions did you attend from 2:30-3:30? In your session, what was something new you learned about community-engaged scholarship?

The session I decided to attend talked about sustainability. In their symposium on sustainability, they said that over forty percent of food is wasted by the United States. After hearing that fact, I was shocked. We could help some many people if we make an effort to cut down the forty percent. It would solve many problems.

1)The showcase presentation that was most impactful to me was one about how students are helping the national wildlife federation help target their audience toward younger generations. I thought this was really important because the younger generations are the ones able to make a change in the environment and in order to do that they need to be informed. The students we talked to recommend doing things such as making their website look more modern, selling young looking merchandise and partnering with stores to increase donations to help reach a new audience thats between the ages of 30 and 50. O thought these were all great ideas and agreed that targeting a younger audience would be most beneficial to increase the donations needed to save our world. /Users/carolina/Desktop/badm pic.JPG 2)I attended the sustainability forum. Something new I learned was that by participating in community engaged scholarship you can help yourself as well as the people you are serving. I'd never really thought about it that way before. I always thought of it as simply helping the community but one of the speakers Dylan Tally stressed that community engaged scholarship is a mutually beneficial relationship and that you should be learning just as much yourself from it as you are helping the community. This was a new mindset that I will now use to think about community engaged scholarship in the future. — Carolina Ortega Carolina Ortega on April 27, 2019
