My group and I gathered virtually to edit our Pecha Kucha powerpoint in preparation for it to be recorded.
I was alone in Gelman Library for 3.5 hours editing interview transcripts, preparing information for the pecha kucha presentation, and doing additional research on data that is available for government department's energy costs and plans which are relevant to our overall problem and solution.
My group and I met in Gelman Library room 507 and discussed in great detail how our presentation for the competition on Friday would be and we essentially finalized our entire project. It was a very detailed meeting that required a lot of communication, collaboration, and planning. In addition, we started working on our presentation for the competition.
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.
I was alone in my room transcribing the interview that myself and my team member conducted with Kevin Funk. upon completion, i shared the information with my entire team to be used as data for our project.
Myself and one of my group members, Eunji Kang, conducted a phone interview with Kevin Funk who is a Senior Procurement Analyst at U.S. General Services Administration.

I volunteered with Martha's Table at one of the Joyful Markets at Aiton Elementary School located at 533 48th Pl NE. I volunteered alongside about 11 other volunteers. Together, we helped pack about 129 bags of food that were eventually handed out to families to help combat the food desert that is present in Wards 7 and 8 of Washington DC.
I was alone in Gelman Library doing research and crafting questions to ask for the interview that is going to occur on 3/4/2020 with Edan Dionne, IBM's Vice President of Environmental, Energy & Chemical Management Programs and the Director of Corporate Environmental Affairs.
From 7pm to 8pm in the Milken building on the sixth floor with 3 of my group members. During this hour, we strategized our project's problem statement, how we would garner data to be analyzed, how we would conduct interviews to receive such data, and overall how we would navigate our research for our project. This is crucial to our project's process.
