Another project I worked on was the Arizona Hemophilia Association blog. If you have not seen it, you can check it out at hemophiliaz.blogspot.org. I learned about how to design a blog and maintain the content on it. It can be difficult to find stories to write about or pictures to make it interesting. I hope we can continue it update it with community stories in the future.
In addition to these projects, I also worked on outreach in Tucson by organizing two local events. One of them was a women’s craft party. Although it was exciting for me to plan, not a lot of people showed up in the end. Fortunately, we were still able to have fun and made some cool Halloween crafts. I learned that sometimes things don’t happen exactly how you plan them, but you can still make the best of any situation.
You can see our crafts here.
I am happy to say that the second Tucson event had more people. Funnily enough, it was also easier to plan! We got some families together at Agua Linda Farm’s Fall Festival and had a fun evening of corn mazes, petting zoos, and Charlie Brown on the farm. It was a great feeling to see families having fun at an event I had put together.
Overall, my experience working with the AHA has been phenomenal. I am happy to have gotten to know so many people in the office and our community. I know I will use the skills I have gained in future jobs and hope I can spread the spirit of this community to others as well.
