For senior project, I would want to accomplish many things. Project management is essential to what I have to do, so I am forced to develop that skill. I am a three-sport athlete and deal with cooperation and leadership daily, so I knew I would excel in that aspect. I am signed to Stanford University on a football scholarship. I take on challenges with pride and always keep high aspirations. I tried to perform my senior project with a near-perfect standard.
My senior project was intended to develop better planning skills and gain more hands-on experience with construction. My plan was to replace the deck in my backyard, make a screened-in porch, and have it ready to host guests for gatherings. Learning about construction and how things work has prepared me in the future when I join the workforce. My senior project has polished the way I execute tasks. Building the deck is something that was necessary for my family, but it also benefitted me personally, as I went through trials and tribulations.
My product of a screened-in porch was an easy way to make connections to society. The way construction and home improvement can affect living quality and real estate value is immensely significant. When houses go through the “house-flipping” process, it boosts property value and can improve the whole community with refurbishing. My research paper was shows that connection between construction and its impact on society. All sources and information in my research paper backed up the fact that the positive house flipping effects far outweigh the negative effects.
Having construction as my topic made me think that only blue-collar labor was required for a career in this field. I found that house flipping is a huge phenomenon in reality television and in practical real estate. House flipping is where an agent will take a project that needs improvement and fix it up, then make money off it. House flipping can directly be related to the screened-in porch that I built. The way I took a project and refurbished it has similarity to the responsibilities house-flippers have.
Senior project was a great way to end high school and take the next step in my education. After all the valuable lessons I learned, I will have better project management and planning skills. That will be important to my success at Stanford, and I cannot wait to enter the work force after with the knowledge I have indulged. Thank you for your time and consideration for evaluating my project!
