So I kinda missed last weeks blog post but as of last week, I learned a few things. I learned about different accounts and the paperwork needed for each. If you see a prime brokerage agreement within the paperwork for a certain account, you know that the account is a DVP account. I learned that there are many different retirement accounts and that even though they are similar, they are most definitely different. An IRA is different than a SEP IRA or a ROTH IRA even though they are all retirement accounts. I learned that dealing with wills and the money of the deceased in regards to their account is a lot more complicated than I initially thought it would be and requires a lot of paperwork and communication with clients. WELL ~ that’s it basically….FOR NOW…. DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNN
I have safely acquired the said business cards of my fellow co-workers. It was tough task but I overcame it. Mission Success!!!!!
This is a timeline describing the different selves throughout the time in MOUSE Corps. Before mouse corps, I was a shy little girl who thinks almost only about grades in school and nothing else, not being able to talk to others, I was lonely. Then I joined MOUSE Corps, learned a lot about teamwork and becoming a leader. What used to be called as “bossy” has now became “leadership” in my eyes. I was able to learn about other things that I became interested in. Gaining experience through the Legacy projects helped me enjoyed the times of working with technology and knowing that these knowledges will be helpful. The future me, the me after the summer apprenticeship will be a me that will step into college, know how to manage my financial status along with my schedule, as well as a me that will be much more knowledgeable in technology.
Before Mouse Corps: Was just an average kid skating by school and not really getting involved or doing anything worthwhile. Usually hung out with friends after school and played video games, not really doing anything of importance for my future career, although I really wasn’t set on what I wanted to do.
With Mouse Corps: With this amazing group of students and coordinators I was able to gain so much more knowledge in engineering and be opened up to many new exciting opportunities: A-Team, GadgeITERATION, Mozilla Workshops and Emoti-Con! I even have a set idea on what I might want to major in the future: Video game programmer, Computer Engineer, Software Engineer, Public Speaking or Computer Sciences.
Post-Apprenticeship: With GadgeITERATION, I hope to enhance skills in engineering by working on and creating awesome things from scrap parts, as well as meet many new people and make many new connections.
Before Mouse Corps I would describe myself as a shy person and oblivious to what I wanted to do in the future.
Now, I have gained work experience and learned how to work with a new group of people. I have also gained experience in public speaking.
For the future, or after my summer apprenticeship experience I will hope to broaden my network, learn how to manage my time and learn how to work in a professional environment.
