This week of step up, we learned about drugs and subsistence abuse overall like vaping, tobacco, and marijuana. What I noticed throughout all of these issues is the number of young people that are using it. New policies and laws that specially target reducing that number of minors are more and more common throughout the world as well. This week we got more familiar with Animaker and Storybird with posts and animations. – Salma H.
This past week has been an interesting experience that varied from day-to-day. It was new and confusing at first and admittedly even a bit now, but as the week progressed it became easier. This year’s internship structure is really different from what was planned earlier this year because of the pandemic, and the way we communicate through zoom rather than face to face. That itself presents its one challenges but I can tell that everyone is trying their best to help make this experience as smooth and beneficial as possible. Learning to use tools like Animaker and Storybird did take some practice along with trial and error but I was able to create some pieces that I am proud of. –Salma Hashi
