Day 25: Final Edits

It was a big day today! We had our "pearls of wisdom" for our Service Learning project from Mr. T. at 10am, meaning that we had to complete the draft of our video by that time. After the pearls of wisdom, our group ended up having to make a whole new video, as my iMovie crashed and we had been editing on my laptop. We switched to Debbie's laptop, and rushed to have a new video done by 2:30pm, for our check in with Ms. Song. Although it was extremely stressful to get the video done in time, I believe we maintained a positive mental attitude, and pushed each other to get through the day. By 2:30pm, our video was prepared and ready for critiques. At three, we were to meet with Mr. T. for our final pearls of wisdom. The other group had reached Mr. T. before us, so we had to wait till 4 to receive our advice. It was relieving to know that we had improved since the morning, and we had our final check up right before the night's evening activity. Our video was finally approved to be posted!

My name is Mia C., and I am Taiwanese. Although born in Taiwan, I am also American and Canadian. This year marks my 11th year of living in Shanghai, and my 6th year attending SAS. I enjoy trying new things and understanding the world around me, so Microcampus seemed like the perfect opportunity. The experience was more than I could have ever imagined and I hope to return to Xizhou soon.
