Raquel Singleton Capstone
For my capstone, I decided to create a project based on my future plans of volleyball and how my experience in high school has helped me with those plans. For my project, I interviewed freshmen who were on the JV volleyball team and asked about their experience and what they are looking for in a captain. My main focus was on the challenges and character traits that a person should have to be a team captain. Based off of the interviews, I learned that you need to be helpful when being a captain and showing leadership. My process for this project was a little rocky at first, but it winded up coming together. I reached my goal of finding what I wanted to learn and other people's interpretations of what it takes to have a leadership role. This project has taught me many lessons. For one, you shouldn’t be afraid to stand up and ask for help. Second, you have to work hard for what you want. These two things are life lessons to go by because it will get you through what we call life. After this project, I hope to be a volleyball coach in the future, but starting off I want to be a captain for my volleyball team in college. This experience will help me be the person that I want to be.
