- Learning a new language
In the app called Duolingo, I saw that Hawaiian was an endangered language around the world. This made me sad because I always wanted to visit Hawaii and I am very curious about their language. I will start studying today but years ago, I watched a video about the hardship and difficulty of the language. Therefore, I am scared but I believe if I try my best and study for 10 minutes every day, I will obtain the perfect Hawaiian. With this experience, I will get a chance to challenge myself and consider my actions. Additionally, since Hawaiian is an endangered language, this is a great chance for me to be a part of the preservers of the language.
- Enrolling on an online course
We are in an ongoing pandemic which is hard for everyone. We should make a bad situation good for ourselves. If we do not, it will have a non-pleasing outcome. In the pandemic, I started learning how to think as art and how to improve my skills. I have always been interested in the arts and their history. I saw a course that Harvard University gives free of charge to those who are interested and keen to learn. I enrolled in this course to learn about the history of arts which will help me in my visual arts lessons. There are videos that I will watch for 6 weeks and taking notes and searching for the topics can improve my general knowledge.
- Attending online workshops
This is a 2-hour session planned, prepared, presented by British Council Turkey. It is about climate change awareness and technological solutions. This workshop is a great opportunity for me because this weak I thought of opening a club about global worming. I will attend the seminar to see what experts say on this topic. I believe this will be helpful for me and for my knowledge and perception. Additionally, I hope these seminars will continue because we have so many things to learn from the experts.
- Learning new recipes
I saw something on the internet about vegan meals and I was curious about their procedure. So I started searching for some ideas for making vegan recipes. Then an idea came to my mind which is learning vegan recipes and then maybe opening an international vegan club. With these, I will enhance my knowledge whilst widening my perspective. I am a little stressed because I know that making vegan recipes will be tough due to the ingredients they use. But I will try my best to create vegan recipes. I will use another ingredient if I do not have the one which is in the recipe. Maybe I will create a vegan recipe that can be useful for everyone. I hope this experience goes well because it has so many things in it which can improve me since I am challenging myself and my skills with my critical thinking and analysis skills.
- Attending online debates
Our teacher sent us a link about some events in the branch of saving the planet. There were many events like fashion with the Earth, Talk on Tomorrow with SDGs, trees our friends, etc. They were all great but I chose Talks on Tomorrow since it was an interactive meeting. They give us a chance to speak and want us to have three solutions at the meeting. I am very excited about this meeting because I get a chance to enlarge my perspective and meet new people.
- Competing in online competitions
I got a mail about an art competition about refugees with sports. At first, I was shocked because I did not know the reason for them while sending this email. However, on second thought I realised it would be great for me if I attended. My art is not that good but in the instructions, it says you do not have to be talented to be a part of this competition if you are interested you are more than welcome. So I decided to give it a shot. I hope I will perform my best through my art journey.
