Anna, a learner and a student in seventh grade, writes…

The edu180atl project has pushed me to “think outside the box” more than I normally do. Many posts have gotten me thinking about what I could do more often–talk to neighbors, appreciate the small things in life, rest a minute, and think about the big things. It’s made me think about our community, and what could be improved in it, and it’s helped my confidence. I was nervous, sharing my writing to the world when I could barely share it in a classroom. Once my two posts were up, on the beta site and then the official version, and I knew people were looking at them from all around Atlanta, I’ve seen an increase in my confidence. I’m now able to share my writing homework in English with just a small bit of butterflies in my stomach, not the… flock?… that occupied it before. I think edu180atl is a great idea, and inspires everyone to not just think about the exams coming up, but be happy that the sun’s coming up and the world’s still spinning.
