1. Description of Our Team
Four damsels were united to create a website which raises awareness about the importance of education and diplomacy. Alodie Maureen, 15, is an agile thinker and a winsome individual. She has the most cogent ideas from which her teammates are able to connect their thoughts to. She graduated from a public elementary school and saw the realities of school life. Because of the circumstances she saw, it made her realize that education is really important. Shane, 15, is the artist of the team. She is a very bashful person, but active when it comes to school- related activities. Shane is a studious and a person dedicates to her studies because she believes that education is a step towards success and a better world. Brichelle, 15, is a very munificent person. She is not a grouch. This young lady accomplishes whatever task is entrusted to her. She is a person who envision a world where everyone can do what they want especially the things that can help other people. Portia, 15, is the most assiduous person that our team has. She keeps an update of the progress of our work. She is the great provider of our tram for she sustains our needs in the team. Her habit of watching the daily news makes her aware of the social issues and flaws in our government. With this, she envisions to help people, who are in need, especially the children who are on the streets, working for their family instead of studying.
2. Summary of Our Project
We are all born in this world where limited education is a reality. Not all are given the privilege to be educated. Only those who are wealthy, those who have money and those who are supported by their families are able to go to school. Every person has the right for good and proper education. Every member of our team agrees with that statement that is why we decided to make a website about the out of school youth to show the importance of education. We envision a society where everyone is given the chance to fulfill their dreams. We believe that education is a step for a better future.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
a. Combining our ideas – There were times that the members do not agree with the ideas of other members. What we did was to be democratic and vote upon the ideas. Whichever will be chosen will be accepted mutually by all the members.
b. Communication – Sometimes, a member of the group cannot access the internet for researches and compiling our researches. Nevertheless, we used other resources like communicating through texting and meet-ups to finish out task on time.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
“Never let any circumstances stand in your way. Instead, see them as challenges you need to get through and overcome.”
In our everyday life, we experience a lot of circumstances that may inspire us or discourage us. Because of these circumstances that may dishearten us, there are times that we loose hope or even feel being down. Nevertheless, despite the negative experiences that we experience, we should put them aside to pursue our dreams or even better, you should use those challenges to make our future better.
6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
We followed the given guidelines and accomplish the tasks assigned to us in order to join the said competition. As students, our knowledge in HTML and web page development expounded from the time we starts this project. We used our skills to present clearly our desired outcome. We also used the internet to research about some facts to the problem we have decided to solve. We let all ideas flow into one decision that can change the whole perspective of the world. We looked first at the major problems in our society. Furthermore, we grabbed the opportunities that could tell us all the reasons or factors that had led to this social problem. Since we are students, we are greatly affected by the fact that this problem has brought our fellowmen to their demise.
