Student Blog: CoCo Gutman
I really enjoyed doing a meeting outside because with out 3-Bin system project we rarely get to be in nature. We did a public speaking activity where we had to stand up in front of everyone and talk about anything for a minute and thirty seconds. The catch was that we couldn’t use words such as like, um, uh or any nervous tick. This activity helped us improve our public speaking skills. This game was my favorite part of the meeting, I was laughing so hard with my team members. It also helped me get over my fear of public speaking because I was able to be silly and make mistakes in front of people that I know support me.
I have been working on getting a 3-bin system at Tech even before I joined Earth Team, so talking about tips for students wanting to do the same thing was rewarding. I was able to share how I overcame certain struggles and the importance of finding a passionate and committed team. Without a team a project so big can seem daunting. Every person on Earth Team is unique and that’s why we create a diverse and strong group.
