1. The most impactful presentation for me was the one about food insecurity. I found it very impactful because it showed the amount of food deserts in Washington, DC that I was unaware of. This made me want to do more for the community to help make a solution to the huge issue.
2. I attended the sustainability forum. It taught me how important being a part of giving back to the community is not only to help you grow as a person, but it is also very beneficial in the business world as well.
Question #1 Which showcase presentation was most impactful to you and why?
I went to the presentation about the National Wildlife Federation and I thought that it was particularly powerful because it made me realize the negative impact we were having upon our planet and that things needed to change or else we would cause even more permanent damage to earth.
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?
I attended the session talking about sustainability. In the session, I learned about how easy we could make a difference in our community and that if every person was a bit more mindful and participated, we could solve a lot of society's problems.
The showcase presentaton that was the most impactful for me was Ward 8 presentation. In this presentation I learned about how people are living in unhygienic housing due to low cost in DC, and some rich businessmen are trying to buy these houses for the cheapest price and drive this people away. And big businesess such as Amazon are constructing their new headquater in Virginia which is very closeby, and once Amazon is settled, it will lead to more job opportunities and prices will go up and these houses value will go up and poor people will have nowhere to go. This impacted me the most because I was always thinking of buying houses for the cheapest in the future, renovate it and sell it to make profit, but now I realized that when I do make decisions like this I should check that my businesses doesn't hurt anyone.
The community engaagement session that I attened talked about how there is so much free money available in GW, and If I come with a plan or an idea that will make the DC community better I can earn scholarship and money to improve and work on my idea. Also, I learned that doing certain amout of hours would make me eligible to apply for community engagement scholarships.
Question #1 Which showcase presentation was most impactful to you and why? (Be sure to upload a picture)
I really enjoyed a specific poster on the interaction between intellectual disability and cerebral palsy in relationship to the autism spectrum because I volunteered with autistic and disabled children all throughout high school at TOPSoccer, a buddy program designed to pair buddies with children that have disabilities.

Question #2 Which of the six sessions did you attend from 2:30-3:30? In your session, what was something new your learned about community engaged scholarship?
I attended the business school specific panel - Community Engagement in Business. I thoroughly enjoyed the panel and learned about how working with nonprofit organizations both can benefit my community as well as propel my own professional career. I also learned about the value of nonprofit organizations within a community.
Question 1: The showcase presentation that most impactful for me was an NGO called Yes She Can.This was especially impactful because this organization was dedicated to empower women by offering resume and cover letter workshops to women who do not have the resources to be successful. It was similar to what we learn in FYDP and I thought it was impactful that someone was taking this idea and using it in a way to help others.

Question #2: I attended the business school specific session and I learnt about how two people, one in the business school and one who wasn't, made an impact within their community through their business model. I learnt that one can provide services to community by incorporating community engagement as their main mission within their business.
1) The most impactful presentation for me was the one led by the class who engages with the Spanish speaking community. They each created video presentations about the type of service they did and the one that stood out most specifically was from the student who went to the elderly home for Spanish and Vietnamese speaking community members. This was most impactful to me because it showed me a new perspective of community engagement, one that never would have occurred to me before.
2) I attended the discussion led by the two seniors that each talked about what they have developed at their time at GW. In this session, I learned how much food is wasted and what the redistribution of food and resources could do for our community. I also learned that working for nonprofits can only have positive benefits and can build skills that can be carried forward into future careers.
Question #1 Which showcase presentation was most impactful to you and why?
The presentation i decided to attend was DC. 127. They talked about how they wanted to make a positive impact to the community.

Question #2 Which of the six sessions did you attend from 2:30-3:30? In your session, what was something new your learned about community engaged scholarship?
From 2:30 to 3:30 i attended the session where they spoke about two non-profits and asset based community engagement. It was great to hear how they were able to use resources from GW to launch their organisation.
1.I was particularly touched when I saw that many children were so small but had to rely on relief food to live, and I was particularly touched when the team worked together to overcome the difficulties.
2.I didn't go to the session, because that time I just got the final exam of BAMD2301,and I think I will Google the community engaged scholarship in DC to learn more about this.
1.) The most impactful showcase presentation that I attended had to do with the large food insecurity in one of the wards of D.C. It was impactful because it made me more aware of the food deserts in D.C. and the possible solutions to it.
2.) I attended the sustainability forum. I learned that participating in community engagement helps both the community and helps you as an individual grow. I also learned that you can incorporate your community engagement and the skills you develop because of it to further your business endeavors.
Question #1 Which showcase presentation was most impactful to you and why?
I found that the presentation about the girl who rebuilt houses in New Orleans was the most impactful. She spoke about how people lost their homes in hurricane Katrina and how they could not afford to rebuild them. Her help in rebuilding houses must have meant the world to those she helped.
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?
I went to the business school panel and I learned about how people should participate in an area of service that they feel a connection with. Community service is not only about the work you do but also about gaining from the time spent. You learn about how different people live, you practice your communication skills and become more sympathetic with others.
