Danika - Skill Development


As a returnee, Danika decided that the most valuable aspect of her Propel experience would be developing her “21st Century Skill” set. This is why her project is focused on enhancing skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, character, career, and citizenship.  In order to achieve her goal, Danika has separated her time into multiple two-week blocks. These include sculpting, poetry, photography, architecture, podcasting, and volunteering. The purpose of each block is to enhance one of these particular skills. For example, Danika improved her creativity when crafting a wire sculpture. To showcase her development, Danika has written a blog post for every block.
