The SHAD community is so inviting and I am so glad to be a part of this program. Today, I had the opportunity to build and program different robots as well as learn the art and science behind marketing. I really enjoyed both of these workshops because I had the opportunity to learn about fields that I had no prior experience with. It was a wonderful learning experience and the support that I received from my SHAD family really allowed me to have the confidence to learn to my best ability.
During the evening, our supervisors took us to Dance-able where we volunteered for a dance party for disabled individuals. Although this was Dance-able's first year and we did not know what to expect, it turned out to be one of the best experiences I have ever had. It was a life changing experience for me because I learnt that physical and mental disabilities do not define what type of person you are. In the end, many of the individuals that came to the event ended up helping me learn how to dance. The first few days at SHAD have been so amazing and I cannot wait for the weeks to come!
