These last 3 weeks we are to build and present our final project, the Capstone! And then we are released into the wild, WILD Dev world!

Week 9, I got my resume together, changed my Capstone idea last second (and got it approved), and tied some loose ends on my mini projects.

I had a zoom meeting with the entire school on how we are to present our Capstone. The founder of Claim Academy, Ola Ayeni, presented some great tips and at the end of his presentation we each had to present our own Capstone ideas. This was totally unexpected and I felt a rush of anxiety fill my body. "What if he doesn't like my idea? Wow, his idea was amazing! How am I going to present this?" were a few of the 324802574398 thoughts that crossed my mind.

And then it was my turn to present my idea. Of course my internet connection was choppy, so I only heard bits and pieces of Ola's questions and statements on my idea. From the questions he asked me, I learned that I need to present my Capstone a little more clear and detailed. I've spent all weekend trying to come up with a statement that fully describes my Capstone and I seriously can't wait for the final presentation now!

I'm still keeping this a secret until it's finished and deployed. But what I can tell you is that I'm using my experiences of being an Orthodontic assistant and Microblade Artist and incorporating that into my Capstone πŸ’š

Your answers really did help me get to the next step in learning! There's still so much to learn but I do feel like I'm finally getting the hang of it!
