1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your Doors to Diplomacy project?
The types of computers we used were the Dell computers provided by our school and at home. We used the local library located in our school. To locate the websites that we used, we used the search engine Google. We checked out a book in the library that told us a personal story about a girl who was tricked into sex trafficking. The book Sold provided us with an overview of what sex trafficking is.
2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your Doors to Diplomacy project both on-line and in person.
Ms. Myers had us to present some specific information about our topic. We had to becocme experts in this situation. After the presentation, Ms. Myers told our group that we were well on our way. She wanted us to act like ambassadors and that's what we did!
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
This website has changed our perspective of the sex trafficking happening everywhere, not just Myanmar. I would walk around my block and ask people if they were aware of sex trafficking! I knew they would not know anything about sex trafficking in Myanmar but I still wanted their opinion.
4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?
While working on our project we ran into a problem with some information. We couldn't find the rights that were being violated due to sex trafficking. So we sent emails to different organizations asking for help! We are still waiting for a response.
5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
Something that surprised us was the fact that one father that found out that his daughter was forced sold into sex trafficking and his comment was, 'I wish i could have asked for more money.' The fact that he didnt care about his daughter shoked us.
