My name is Tiffany Irick. I am a upcoming makeup artist in Philly. I'm 18 years old and ready to pursue my passion. I am hoping this will demonstrate that I have met my goals by the amount of clients I will have. Also by the different shades of skin tones I did will show you that i am capable to do a wide variety of ethnic groups. I wanted to make a Makeup blog and a few makeup of tutorials. I've been doing art for sometime now. I realized that I can also do makeup and use my artistic talent to help me out. I love doing makeup. I feel like makeup boosts people's self esteem and confidence. By doing this project I hope to learn how to cater to each skin tone This allowed me to experiment with different styles of art. So while doing this I can learned more techniques. By the end of my capstone I am now able to send my blog to schools and jobs. This was an appropriate learning goal for me because I actually want to Pursue this dream. It was a perfect opportunity to make my blog because I will take this with me to job interviews end schools by doing this project this will help me get better at doing makeup. On the blog there is a series of picture in different section of the site. There is also information about me and why I made the blog post. I used a website called Wix and started a blog. There I added photos and information about the makeup that was shown on the blog. I made sure I provide ways to contact for more information. Here's My Capstone Link https://tirick.wixsite.com/makeupbymdk https://docs.google.com/a/slabeeber.org/document/d/1MNwD6SGzmRX5fQ02xnxQDI5f3VRv14YhKnNfV6QRTLA/edit?usp=sharing
Summary: So basically I created a small cafe like thing in my high school “Study Skills” course. The process was pretty simple as I emailed the people I wanted to invite from Miss. Landman’s class and created the three stories to read in front of the class. It was pretty simple as I enjoy writing a lot. Once done I edited it with Ms. Landman. We had snacks and created a cafe-like setting. It was alright I guess. A few of my peers were there along with reading my creative writing teacher for whom I wrote some of the pieces. After everything was said and done, I got some good feedback. I didn’t get much from them in terms of improvement so I’m perfectly sure that each of my stories were perfect.
For my capstone, I choose to implement a high school student athletic trainer aid program right here at SLA @ Beeber. Sports have been a big part of my life since freshman year and all throughout high school. Though all the great time spent in the gym there was also the hard time to follow including injuries. This helped me realize the importance of athletic trainers as they were the ones that helped me get back on my feet. My final project includes a video of coach King giving one of his lessons to some volunteer and future athletic trainers in a classroom setting, along with other clips of demonstrations to help prevent injuries. This project has really been an eye opening experience for me as I learned a lot through the process. The more I learned about the human body I also gained knowledge on the wide variety of things that the athletic trainer knows. I gained a new appreciation for athletic trainers and learned that they are a viable asset to the medical field and rightfully so. I hope through my project you can gain the same appreciation.

“Kev Da Barber” (Barber name)
How does someone's haircut relate to their identity? In an article from Today’s News some Hair Experts says your hair tells a lot about who you are. The article stated that Straight hair is more conservative and Curly hair was more casual. Everyone’s hair style means different things. A person may be wearing a certain hair style for one reason, and I’m wearing my hair style like the way it is for my own reasons. Everyone hairs tells a story about who you are and where you come from. Everyone hair is able to do different things as some other hair textures may not allow you to do. You have may have spikey, curly, puffy, nappy, straight, short, long hair, etc but it’s all about having your own style and wearing what makes you the most comfortable.
Everyone should know the style they like their hair to be. A lot of people decide to wear their hair to fit in with the trends that's out right now. That never was the case for me. I always was the kid that wanted to be different. I remember being the only kid in elementary school to have a fade with a part on the side. My hair cuts defined who I was growing up, I was the kid that wanted to be different. Everyone’s should sense a more confident self when you get your haircut or hair done. Different Hair textures allow for you to wear different hairstyles because they don't always go good with each other. It would be extremely difficult for a person with spiky straight hair to try to get a fly wavy hair pattern. All hair is different and you have decide how to wear your hair that best fits YOU!

Arroberts922. "Homelessness in Philadelphia." YouTube. YouTube, 19 Jan. 2011. Web. 07 Feb. 2017. <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0_PcHS5_gs>.
This source provides information about the perspective of different residents of philadelphia regarding the homelessness that is going on in their city. We selected this source because it provides some ideas on how the style of the documentary can be made. It also helps me with trying to figure out what types of questions we should be researching, and even figure out where the direction of my project will lead to. One limitation to this source is the fact that it does not reflect the vision we have for this project, and seems like any other typical documentary when you just interview random people. It is not necessarily as successful at catching attention as we would like for our documentary to be.
"Facts on Homelessness." Project HOME. N.p., n.d. Web. 07 Feb. 2017. <https://projecthome.org/about/facts-homelessness>.
This source provides information about the statistics of the amount of homelessness in Philadelphia. This is very helpful due to the fact that I am trying to spread awareness of the amount of homelessness in Philadelphia, and how everyone has different reasons for why they are in the position they are in. It isn’t just single homeless people, but in some cases there are families that are stuck having to live in their car, or sleeping on the train, or even at the train station. This website covers a lot of information including the circumstances that the majority of the homeless are in. One limitation of this source is that it is only estimates of the amount of homeless. So the number could have risen, or fallen during the time this information has been released.
Blt189. "Down and out (Homeless in Philly)." YouTube. YouTube, 18 Aug. 2011. Web. 07 Feb. 2017. <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=op2Bq6cNU5g>.
This source provides a bit of information during the introduction in regards to facts on homelessness in Philadelphia. Except this video was made in 2011, and I am not sure if this is an accurate source. The main thing that I am able to get out of this source is being able to get a look on the director’s idea, and how he came across on trying to make this type of documentary. There are some things I liked about what he did, and there are some things I did not like. When making the documentary I will be sure to copy the things that I do, and avoid making the same mistakes he committed when editing/shooting the video.

Web. 07 Feb. 2017. <http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Fighting-for-a-Home-The-Silent-Epidemic-of-Youth-Homelessness-332250942.html>.
This source provides information specifically on the youth that struggle with being homeless in the streets of Philadelphia. The article not only provides statistics on what the homeless youth would typically do if they had no where to stay, but 5 different interviews on the lives of 5 homeless young people. I found this source useful because it is definitely the source that has come closest to being able to accomplish what I have in my mind/my vision for the documentary.

This source provides information about what the city of Philadelphia has tried to do in regards to the amount of homelessness. It brings up how the Jim Kenney administration had a plan to help get the homeless off the streets. Except the thing that is wrong with this article is that it was written on May 16, 2016. In about 3 months it would be a year since the article was made. Reading this article it made me feel like instead of fixing the homeless problem it has just been swept under the carpet. Instead of finding homes, and shelters, the homeless are just straight up being pushed out of our city.
6. "Homeless Advocacy Project - Free legal help for homeless individuals and families." Homeless Advocacy Project - Free legal help for homeless individuals and families. N.p., n.d. Web. 07 Feb. 2017. <http://www.homelessadvocacyproject.org/>.
This source provides information about an organization that helps out the homeless. I don’t want to just present the problem in the documentary, but be able to provide somewhat of a solution. If I am able to get at least one person’s sympathy, and get at least one person wondering on how they could help the cause, I have achieved my goal. It is for that one person that I would include this source. The only problem though is that this source does not focus in Philly, because it is a pretty big organization that covers more than just Philadelphia.

This source provides information about 7 facts on the homelessness in Philadelphia. It mentions topics that I didn’t even think to look at. Such as how in the LGBTQ community there is a major problem in regards to the youth that are left homeless. This is definitely a topic I would like to touch upon because of how popular the Gay rights movement has been. So to intertwine the 2 topics would be a nice way to look at homelessness from a whole new perspective.
8. "HomelessShelterDirectory." Philadelphia Homeless Shelters and Services - philadelphia PA Homeless Shelters - philadelphia Pennsylvania Homeless Shelters. N.p., n.d. Web. 07 Feb. 2017. <http://www.homelessshelterdirectory.org/cgi-bin/id/city.cgi?city=philadelphia&state=PA>.
This source provides information on the amount of shelters that there are in Philadelphia, as well as their location. The reason I would like to search for information like this is because I don’t want to just interview the homeless, but be able to provide at least a little help by providing them with information on what they can do to help themselves. Hopefully this would influence others to do the same, and simply help out the homeless by providing simple information.
This source provides information about the laws regarding homelessness, and poverty in the nation. As I read through the source it seems very professional, and reliable. It provides details on homelessness going way back. Finding this source makes me want to branch out more towards spreading information that is national, and not just talk about the city of Philadelphia, because although it is a situation in Philadelphia it does affect the rest of the nation as well.
10. "Philadelphia unveils new, proactive outreach program for homeless." PhillyVoice. N.p., 16 May 2016. Web. 07 Feb. 2017. <http://www.phillyvoice.com/philadelphia-unveils-new-outreach-program-homeless/>.
This article explains that there is apparently a new outreach program created by the city of Philadelphia. It talks about the story of a man they helped, and although he claimed to be homeless it had turned out he could return home whenever he pleased. This is another point I would like to bring out. Most of the time it is the fault of the person themself that they are in that position. Except that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve help. A limitation to this source is that it is from last year on May 16. It is unknown of any other cases in which they were able to help anyone out from this year. So I can not necessarily say this is a successful Philadelphia program.
You know how it’s useful for companies to collect your information and record your web browsing habits so they can hit you with ads you would actually watch? It actually works, because Youtube’s recently been playing movie ads whenever I would watch videos instead of doing work, and I would actually watch the whole ad, because it catches my attention.
For my Capstone, I worked for the Tiny WPA & Public Workshop (whom I’ve been with for like 3 years now) alongside Mr. Pilla and Gabe Ladd to help code, design enclosures, and install photo sensors (light sensors), and vibration sensors onto benches and eventually in a park that’s going to be built soon.
The sensors would gather use data on finished projects from the Tiny WPA and Public Workshop and show us how people use the things we’ve built, so that we can improve the design later, and we can also use the data to show that the projects are actually being used and that the money the funders have given us weren’t wasted.
During the project, I would meet with either Mr. Pilla or another guy Gabe who’s an engineer, and they would mentor us on the basic concepts of coding and electronics, the principles of data collection and analysis, plus sensor design and manufacturing techniques. The product of this project was a sensor that records if something's being used at whatever time through detecting disturbances in the amount of light it’s receiving, and we’re probably gonna use it in our future projects like benches on the sidewalk, as well as making it public with instructions so others can replicate use it.
My senior capstone was to redesign the senior cafe. The goal was to enable us as seniors to create something that will be able to stay after our present SLA seniors. We wanted to make the senior cafe a place where seniors would actually like to eat their lunch. Over the course of this project we learned about leadership and taking control and leading by example. We wanted to do this for many reasons. Questions were brought up such as, How would the space be useful after we leave? Why don’t many students use the cafe now? ,What kind of room do we want it to be?,. Will it keep more people out of the hallways? ,What would it be used for? We also learned about management and budgeting. We completely renewed it from the paint colors which were chosen by a survey done by students. We brought furniture to go in the room to make it more comfortable and inviting. We purchased games that we thought students would like to play on their free time. We fundraised twice a week to be able to afford all of this stuff. In the beginning we started off with selling ice cream one day and pizza another but the pizza wasn’t making enough money so we stopped that. Towards the end we wanted to add something new to the ice cream. We chose to sell waffles and ice cream, and it was a big success. We also chose to leave something to remember the first graduating class by putting their hand-prints on one the walls in the cafe.
