My team members gathered together on a phone call to discuss the interviews that we conducted throughout the past few weeks, analyzed our results, created future plans for future interviews, and began to discuss our presentations.
Weekly meeting with group and discussed more interviews. Discussed future transcript writing for tomorrow's meeting.

Clothing swap two. This clothing swap was less busy than yesterday, likely because of the nice weather keeping people outside. This made the event a little less fun as we were not interacting with as many people. However, it was still great when people came in and we got to talk to them about sustainability and help them pick out new clothing!
I did personal research on hurricane maria and Fema.
The swap was quieter today but we still had a good turn out. It was great to talk to people about our project and to promote our next swap happening in April. We also collected a good amount of data about the clothes that were being swapped and donated.
Today went well despite the fact that we had less participants than yesterday. While we had less people come through our space, we still had a significant amount of clothing brought in for donation. Additionally, we were still able to have meaningful conversations with them regarding our project and the importance of a sustainable approach to post-consumer textile waste. We were able to effectively track each piece of clothing that came in and we're excited to tell a story behind our findings.
Volunteered to prep burritos to be served in the community to be served on McKenna's Wagon in the afternoon.
Working the pop up has been awesome! From the beginning of the pop up onwards, our total inventory of clothing has changed completely. It has been amazing seeing all the growth of clothing in our inventory, and all the different types of clothing we have received. It is also really interesting to see what people have wanted to take from our inventory.
I tutored my student, and worked with her on building those essential reading and writing skills.
I had a wonderful time serving on Saturday at the Pennsylvania Ave Location and starting to work with a student transitioning back into the program!
I tutored a new student this week
This was our first clothing swap, I was really impressed with the turn-out and the clothing people brought. I am very optimistic about our future swaps.
This was our first clothing swap event that we hosted. It was a really successful event and it was great to see the residents of South Hall so excited to participate. I think the fact that our target demographic for this event was seniors nearing graduation, a lot of them had clothes they have been wanting to get rid of but were waiting until move-out. It was also interesting to note how a lot of people wanted to give away their clothes but did not want to take any of the clothing that was previously donated in return. Overall, this was a great event and I'm excited for our future events.
Very well organized team
