  Ivette Rodriguez8/30 – Today was the first day of school and the first time getting our guidelines for capstone. Im still not sure what I want to do and what the purpose of this pro!ect is. veryone seems to have a great idea on their mind #ut Im still #ehind on even having a topic.$/%& Today I came up with two ideas for my capstone pro!ect. 'ne of my ideas is to fundraise money and collect clothes for a women shelter. very year my family does a dinner for a shelter on (hristmas eve and Ive learned from that e)perience that clothes is something people in shelters need more of especially woman and their daughter. *y second idea is hemophilia awareness or to fundraise money for that specific center in the (hildrens *edical here in +artford. $/$ – I decided to go with my +emophilia ,wareness pro!ect #ecause it is something that relates to me and my #lood disorder. I thin- itll #e important to inform more people a#out it #ecause it really isnt something much people -now a#out. eople really !ust thin- that hemophilia is !ust one disorder when theyre various different -inds of it. I thin- finding a mentor is going to #e a very difficult step during this pro!ect. I feel li-e everythings moving so fast its already the end of the second wee-.  $/ – 1esterday I met with *rs.2outilier and tal-ed to her a#out my capstone idea. he thought it was a great idea especially with my e)perience with my own disorder. omeone else in the senior class is doing a pro!ect similar to mine which isnt great in my opinion #ut itll #e cool if we wor-ed together. I will create a oweroint on +emophilia and present it in one of the science classes when theyre spea-ing a#out genetic disorders since that it what hemophilia is. Im nervous a#out this capstone #ecause it is -ind of personal especially the way that I found out that I had this disorder. $/%& Ive found out Im the only one in the senior class doing a capstone a#out hemophilia. Thisma-es me more e)cited a#out my idea. I do not have to worry a#out what someone else is doing4if Im repeating something that they did or #oth wanting to do something at the same time.$/5& 6oo-ing for a mentor for my pro!ect and Im not sure who I should try to as-. I -now having someone in the actual medical field will give me an advantage #ut it is also a struggle to find anyone with the time to help me.$/7& Its #een a#out a wee- and I still cant find a mentor. I have tried to contact my own doctors #ut they are too occupied. I have also tried to contact small offices #ut Ive #een put on hold several times and no answer. I didnt thin- it would #e this difficult to find a mentor and it ishonestly stressing me out. This is ma-ing me rethin- my capstone idea and to change it. I have no hope at this point of finding a mentor when no one is #eing helpful.  $/73& Ive found other capstone ideas and am thin-ing of changing my #ut starting the whole  process again will #e irritating. I have yet to find a mentor and I feel as if I am the only one struggling. $/75& Today Ive #een doing research and learning more a#out the types of hemophilia there are. Im uestioning whether I should focus on the type that I personally have or even learn more a#out others and teach a#out those also. I thin- learning a#out other -inds will #enefit me also in many ways in seeing similarities and differences #etween my disorder and the other disorders that are out there. $/7$& Today Ive loo-ed up organizations and places for hemophilia that I can raise money for. 9hat I found that was very interesting is that the east coast of the :nited tates has no organizations for it or support groups. I found it very odd #ecause I #elieved that every state should have something for every condition there is out there. It made me shoc-ed #ecause I wouldve li-e to do something at a place that is dedicated to these disorders and made for the  people who have them.$/30& Ive #een trying to thin- of ways to fundraise for my pro!ect and I thin- Ive come up with  pretty good ideas. I -now Ill have a lot of support #y my friends and family mem#ers. I dont want to do things that everyone else is doing for their pro!ect I want it to #e different and uniue.  0/& 2rittany has #een doing some cool ideas for raising money and I thin- I will do something similar to that #ecause not many people are energetic. he has #een selling %0/%0 raffle tic-ets at the volley#all games4 selling candy and selling #a-ed goods.0/%& I thin- itd #e pretty cool if I had a #a-e sale sometime during this year to fundraise moneyfor my capstone. I can pic- an organization that sounds the #est for it.0/5& roposals are due soon and I havent found a mentor. ;ot having a proposal done the way it is supposed to #e can cause me not to graduate. The whole capstone pro!ect is starting to stress me out more. I dont understand the concept of this pro!ect at all. 0/3& *y proposal still cannot #e sent to *rs. 2outilier. The more time that goes on causes my grade drop on my proposal and it can #ring my overall grade down which is e)actly what I dont want.0/&Today I spo-e with my capstone teacher and we #oth and trying to find and decide who could #e a potential mentor for me. 9e had a potential person #ut we had no way of contacting her4 sadly.
