1. Description of Our Community
Our community is located at the back of Taoyuan Railway Station. Compared to the area in front of the railway station, our community is growing more slowly. Most families in our community are working class so parents here feel that education is important because only with good education can their children have greater chance to be in the upper-class. https://jamiehsia.wixsite.com/weightlifting-coach/general-4
2. Summary of Our Project
The category we choose is Local Leaders. Our project is about a weightlifting coach,Chen Chia-Ling, who has been developing weightlifting in our school, community, and our city. Ms. Chen is a single parent with two children. She trains not only her two children but also some students with poor academic performance to be weightlifters. Because of this move, she allows students with low academic achievement to find a way out. https://jamiehsia.wixsite.com/weightlifting-coach/general-4

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
We encountered two main difficulties when doing this project. First, there were many people to be interviewed for this project, so we had to spend a lot of time after class to arrange all the interviews. For some time, when we encountered interviewees who had to go to the game, we had to postpone the interview. Luckily, because of our perseverance, we ended up completing all interviews by the end of the semester. Second, setting up a website was a new skill for us and we didn’t have time to take class for it, so we learned how to set it up with Google Sites ourselves with online resources. However, after we became familiar with the operation of the system, we found that Google Sites was too monotonous to meet our needs. Then our teacher learned that Wix was another choice for us, so our teacher and us learned all over again how to set up a website with Wix. The process of learning by doing with our teacher was fun. https://jamiehsia.wixsite.com/weightlifting-coach/general-6
