What did the Global Lens Club accomplish in 2018?
The year 2018 was very pivotal for the Global Lens Club. At the beginning of the year, I was
preparing to travel to New York for a week to attend the 62nd Commission on the Status of Women. At this event, I was inspired to develop this project. From there, I completed a lot of paperwork, did a lot of planning and preparation work in order to launch the Global Lens Club by the beginning of the 2018-19 school year. I spent hours developing the curriculum and websites for the Global Lens Club and tried to think through every possible detail. By the beginning of the school year, the Global Lens Club was ready to be launched.
Here is a recap of all the amazing things we accomplished together this year!
Had a VERY successful clubs fair with over 40 people expressing interest!
Averaged 20-30 attendees at each meeting of the Global Lens Club.
