My name is Alexia Chappell. I am eighteen, and I currently aspire to pursue a Human Services degree at Kennesaw State University. My choice for my Senior Capstone Career Project is a food and clothing drive. Together, me and my project facilitator constructed a food drive stand and collected cans for Must Ministries. We also collected numerous bags of donated clothing for those in need.
In my research paper, I explored the vast topic of human services. I established why it was needed. The more I researched, the more I realized the broad opportunity there was to help. Sure, feeding and clothing someone is important, but to go further in helping someone become independent and thrive can impact even more. I also learned that human service workers must value the satisfaction of helping someone and making a difference as opposed to the paycheck.
My product is a food and clothing drive. I knew I wanted my product to help people and be useful. Since I had constructed the research paper, it had given me numerous ideas on what I could do. Being in DFCS care since I was thirteen, it exposed me to the value of charity work. This gave me the opportunity to construct it on my own, though I feared I would not have enough time, or could not get enough resources. With help and encouragement from experienced people around me, I was able to be brave and put myself out there for the sake of donations.
My topic was influenced by my potential career choice from the very beginning. With this project, it gave me opportunity to talk with many case workers and ILP staff for their perspectives and advice. I felt drawn to the idea of case work and working with the foster care system and non-profits. I learned that I can put myself out there for the sake of helping people. I also learned that though you can deal with sad cases at times, there is also so much room in the field for creativity!
This project was not something I expected when I moved to Canton, but it made me do a big project on my own and has prepared me for the future. Thank you for taking time out of your day to judge my product!
