My name is Denaisa Brown, and I chose the career of helping unfortunate homeless people. I am interested in opening my own non-profit organization, with the hope of helping anyone I can. My initial goal was to raise enough food for 60 homeless people for one meal. That turned out to be more complicated than I thought it would be. I will discuss in detail just how complicated it was.
My paper topic was about exactly how and why there is such a large population of homeless people. It is not as simple as one might think. All homeless people are not addicted to drugs and suddenly found themselves with no home or money. They are not all crazy, or unstable. I learned that there is a large percentage of the homeless population who have been abused, have schizophrenia, or who have PTSD.
My product is a short video of me handing out all the donations out to the homeless people. They were very grateful, and it made me joyful that I helped impact another person’s life. One of the problems I faced with my senior project is not obtaining enough food for everyone, or not the three items I was asking for. After making flyers and announcing my drive for homeless people I had to switch from food to items like hand sanitizer, socks, gift cards, etc. I had to donate the food I did receive to a soup kitchen, or give it back to the original giver, which was a very tedious task.
Organizing a drive, and figuring out all the logistics was very hard for me. I learned that I am a horrible procrastinator and should not wait so long to start my senior project. My topic relates to my career, because being organized and efficient is a key characteristic of being a business owner.
This was an amazing learning experience for me. I gained a great deal of knowledge about my future career. Thank you all for your time.
