The first video was created in the beginning of the school year back in 2016 (so long ago) and was my first time ever creating a video with Wondershare Filmora! The task was to create a video about me, why I took this course and a few other questions. Next, I wrote an end of the year reflection (read it and compare it with the 1st Semester Final Review! ) and at the end of this page is a video giving advice to the future AP BIO Rockstars!
End of the year reflection
Creating this site was a little daunting. I had no clue what the plan was or how I was going to be tech savvy enough to have my own blog. My mom had previously run a fashion blog so I knew that this would be no easy feat. However, this experience has been AMAZING! I love being able to look back at my posts and recall all the hard work we have put into this year. From my first post, The Zika Virus and Why You should care to a partner project with Gina Pharmaceutical Products Presentation! (which was awesome because we linked a google slides presentation into our blogs!!!!) to one of my last posts Let’s Talk About Biases, my site has grown so much. As you travel through my site, I feel as though you are traveling through my ap biology journey. My understanding of the biology, my writing, and technology grow through each post. Heck, if you watch every video I have ever created (even just these two on this page) you will see my growth. I am very proud of this site, and even more so proud of my classmate’s sites. We have all came very far this year, and that is evident on our blogs. Next year I will be attending Howard University in Washington DC. as a biology major chemistry minor. Thinking about it now I am so excited I could cry. AP Biology has been a journey. There were times
AP Biology has been a journey. There were times where I felt so proud of myself I could shout from the mountain tops. There were also times I was so down in the dumps that I wanted to cry or drop the class, or both. AP Biology challenged me in ways I have never been challenged before. I had always felt pretty confident in my classes and this is the first class that has ever made me question my worth and ability as a student. But I am much stronger because of it. I have learned so much not just about biology, but about myself as well. And I will most definitely remember these growths and challenges as I head off to college. Mrs. Girard has been a dream. She is an amazing teacher, and if anyone reading this is a future/current/past student of hers, understand how lucky you are to have experienced or get to experience her light.
