"They Said It Couldn't Be Done"

This summer Ms. Janet had a great idea, she thought, let's open up a computer lab that the adults can use. So we brainstormed about it. We decided to set a time from 10:00am to 2:00pm, Tuesday-Thursday. This would give adults time for themselves while their children were at school. It worked out really well. The name of our new lab is called The Educational Outreach Center. At the EOC they can search for jobs, work on their resume, look for scholarships and financial aid and we provide community resources. We also have a children's library for those parents that still have little children. The best thing about having a computer lab is we have free!!!! Internet. It was a struggle at first trying to recruit people in but after a pep talk from Ms. Janet I felt a lot better. I still have my disappointing times but I know that my hard work is not in vain. We now have about 10 residents a day that come into the EOC, how great is that!!!! I still have a lot of things that I need to do to make it successful but I am never going to give up.
