Fundraising - I learned this at Techie Youth today.

Their work is primarily for nonprofit organizations such as educational institutions, religious organizations, social services organizations, etc. They mostly work full time.

Time Management - I learned this at Techie Youth today!

I realized I missed out on an update yesterday, so before I continue on what I learned today I'll give you guys a run down of what I learned yesterday. Yesterday I learned more about social media than I know and I use it in my daily lives. I learned about new social media platforms and their purposes and what they provide to those who use it.

However, no more on yesterday today is a new day so I'm going to tell you guys what I learned today. Today I learned more about time management and things you shouldn't put all of your focus on (cell phones, etc) and things you should focus on.

Resume and Cover Letter - I did this at Techie Youth today!

Good morning everyone,

Today I worked on my resume, LinkedIn account, and my cover letter. I already covered my resume and cover letter during the time that I spent in school, so it wasn't much of an hassle. However, when it came to my LinkedIn account it was a bit confusing because I am not used to using a platform like that one. I usually spend my time searching for jobs on Indeed. I learned that in order to gain viewers you need a summary about you. You also need a professional picture for your account that doesn't have a distracting background.

All about Instagram - I learned this at Techie Youth today!

Today I didn't expect to learn about this topic if I am being quite honest. I woke up today with no energy and I told myself 'Complete an easy assignment so you can just get it over with.' I chose to pick the 'Intro to Earning Money Online.' I complete the tasks they listed and then found out I had to complete one last thing. When I clicked on the provided link it took me another section on the Techie Youth website.

When coming upon this link I was a but upset because it was way more work than I expected. Although I didn't get to complete it all I did get past one section and that was the Instagram part. I was able to learn about theme pages, how to make money on the app and a lot more. Theme pages are pages people use to gain followers, catch people's attention, and also promote and sell their brands.

How to edit videos - I learned this at Techie Youth today.

This topic was something that interested me because I am a person who likes to make videos on social media such as TikTok, Snapchat, or even Instagram. Over the course of completing the assignment I learned a lot of new things that I was not aware of. After watching a few videos I learned the purpose of video editing. Video editing serves the purpose of combining images and sounds that helps the brain capture a feeling or tell a story. I also gained the knowledge of what J + L Cuts are. It was explained in the video that when editing and doing the cuts J cuts are in the shape of a J and L cuts are in the shape of an L.
