An explanation of the research that you did during the semester, making sure the research you did is spelled out clearly.
During the beginning of the semester, we were given a task to examine the situation of our neighborhood. We had to describe who was living in your neighborhood and describe who was affected by the pandemic. That was the first task of our assignments, our next task was to exchange our findings and compare them to our partners. We were able to combine our information via email to complete our assignment. Our final task was to provide an informational ad for the public, with Yicheng Wang, Alpha Barry, Mazen Alquan, and myself we decided to design a flyer.
My job was to provide the group with information about what lessons were learned and how they should be prepared for the future. My method of research was fairly simple, after 6 months of fighting the virus much was learned and many articles regarding the pandemic from many medical professionals taught us how to avoid spreading the virus.

I feel as a group member my weakness was procrastination, though I had extra time to work on this project I could have put more effort into my research at an earlier time. If I would have finished my project earlier and practiced a little more, my group and I would have been more in sync. I feel the strength I have as a group member is adapting. I think with the changes for class due to COVID-19, a strength of mine along with my group was adapting to the online classes. I feel as a group we all adapted well and made the decision. We got through it and did a great job! My strength as an individual was being prepared. I feel I was fully prepared for my role and confident in my research.
