HTH let me know that your prayers do get answered. I love the fact that everyone here is someone you can look to, they all give you strength when walking through and help you to keep on going. I like HTH, and I wanna grow to love HTH. This is an experience you keep for life most definitely. I promise that the stipend isn't even the best thing, it's the experience and the pizza. I love how you make it so simple and easy, and responsible for kids our age, you get to the point and it all works out in the end.
- My role was the manager. I was in charge of what all of our roles were and how we stayed on task. It was fun working together we all were on task except for one, but we got through it. Everyone knew what they were supposed to do, and we got everything done especially in a small amount of time.
- My role in the team was to be the designer, I was responsible for making the logo which was pretty exciting. I had some struggle in the beginning because I was confused about how to customize the logo. I picked up some images off from Google and I messed around with them on Google Drawing. Everyone loved the logo, it brought so much personality to the app. I also helped around on designing the app, and had a great time collaborating with the group.
Hack the hood impacted my by introducing me to new people that I thought I never meet before a day in my life I always love and cherish the people I met here at the ryse. I have learned a lot of many different things while here at the ryse center I have meet alot of strange characters.
After messing around I found so much in me that I didn't know I had in me. I won a website design challenge. We had to re-design the website for The Ryse Center and mine came out one of the best. I also won the 60 second video challenge where we had to talk about ourselves for 60 seconds without showing our faces. There is so many ways that Hack The Hood impacted my life! I would love to keep working here at Hack the Hood because it is changing my life around and now I'm finding myself, I am finding what I am really about. I see my future from a different angle now. I'm thankful for everything that Hack The Hood has done for me.

Okay! Hack the Hood, was an amazing program that I've been in so far. It has really shown me that if you want to be involved in the business life especially technology you have to be prepared and thinking ahead at ALL times. Sure when I first joined this program I thought it would be easy but boy was I wrong. For me it was hard since I've figured out at a young age that I LOVE to procrastinate but by being in this program I've learned to somewhat manage my time with one of the clinics we had called Time Management. Though even after all I've been through and even the
business experience of meeting with strangers I'm still somewhat uncomfortable. But hey, the whole experience changes when you know that if you finish your clients you will be paid.

When I think about wearable technology I think about holograms showing images on your clothes, but then again we don't really have that technology unless you don't mind carrying around an projector all day. Before I never really thought about wearing tech while it plays because I like to just watch my own videos instead of giving everyone else their own entertainment. To me it kinda looks weird but then again it does look cool seeing other people's art and getting inspiration from it. I think in my true opinion wearable technology is not really something I'm into.

The impact Hack the Hood has had on my life is that I had a chance to learn about the internet. I've always been interested in music, but now since my journey in Hack The Hood I feel more knowledgeable about what the internet is and how to work on it. I had a chance to meet cool people, and get know them. I will always have the skills I learned here. Thank you Hack the Hood. I’m glad I joined!
My favorite clinic was definitely the photography clinic. I love the photography clinic because it was teaching us how to use cameras and what’s the proper way to handle an camera. We also had a chance to group up in pears and take photos with our phone cameras, we went over each photo to see everyones. I ended up talking to Francisco about how much I want a Polaroid camera and he said I could buy one on amazon. So maybe I’ll be doing that soon.
Out of all the modules I've learned so far I like Module 2 “Creating your personal brand” the best. I don't really remember much about this module since it was so far back, but I do remember a test we took that told use about our strengths. And with the strengths that we received we had to make up a life title. These are my
strengths… and this is my life title… Information Thinker.
How has Hack the Hood impacted my life. Well since the first day that I got here I knew that was going to be an experience for me. I got to meet an amazing group of people that I worked with the past six weeks. The instructors were awesome the way they taught us the way to developed site for a client. The fact that we are able to walk out of this Intern with a free chromebook. Knowing that school start the week after we can mention to our friend about Hack the Hood. Meeting with my clients impacted me because it was something new to me and after all it went great and they like the way I designed their own website.
If I were going to wear a favorite video of mine I don't think I would want to. Instead I would
wear and image or an anime that I really like. Since my favorite animal is a wolf I would wear a
white wolf with blue eyes or even better a pack of white wolves with blue eyes. Or maybe I would go
with some of my favorite animes like D Gray Man, Tokyo Ghoul, One Piece, Valvrave the Liberator or
even Majestic Prince. Well I don't know, for me I just like wearing plain clothes. Makes it easier to wash.
Wait wait wait… So you are telling me we can be playing soccer right now with ROCKET POWERED CARS!?! What is this madness and how can i get my hands on it! Well look no further than your playstation store or steam store page because I welcome you to the future of ESports gaming… Rocket League!
Rocket League is the long awaited, 2008 physics-based sequel to the beloved arena classic, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars! Developed and published by Psyonix, the game is currently available for both PC and Playstation 4. With the game only being in its third week of being live (at the time of this blog being written), Rocket League’s server has been hit with the overwhelming support from the players so badly that the first week the game was live, you were unable to play an online match! The support for the game is still going strong with the announcement via Rocket League’s official twitter, the game has been downloaded over 4 million times for PS4 & PC. 4 million downloads in just 2 weeks is insane! But how is the gameplay you may ask?

I believe Hack The Hood impacted my life. One reason why I think it impacted my life is because I learned more computer skills. Another reason why I think it impacted my life is how much time we use doing things in a day. I also think it impacted me because I started looking more into school for an education in the future. Finally I believe it had an impact on me because I felt I started to grow stronger in communicating and getting assignments done. Thank you Hack The Hood (:
