This was everyone’s second week of Empowered, but it was my first full week. I have accomplished a lot over the last couple of days. I was stuck on a few things when first learning HTML. The most difficult thing that I had trouble doing was adding images to the website. Sometimes the images wouldn’t show up the way that Treehouse had taught us. On the bright side my favorite part of this weeks Treehouse was learning CSS. I like Cascading Style Sheets because it adds creativity to the blog, webpage and or website. It makes everything so colorful and bright. It gets the people more interested in actually reading what the website has to say. Another thing that happened this week is that I completed HTML and the Introduction of HTML and CSS. I am now working on CSS basics so that I can begin working on creating my own website. My biggest takeaway from the guest speakers this week is always be who you are and learn how to learn. Dr. Johnson told us girls that “in able to succeed in something you first have to learn how to learn.” Learning how to do something can become a challenge in the beginning but it ends up becoming very easy and fun. When something is being taught and learned you can used those things and apply it to something greater, bigger and more powerful. Another thing that she said that I took away was that we all need to “create a brand that will make us unique” and different from all the other brands out here!
