Hi guys I’m Claudia Gutierrez and I was El líder de dia for CAP design. I earned the el líder del dia hat by performing my high school fight song cheer. We started off the day with breakfast and began a program seminar for our CAP project. Our CAP project is going to help the community of El Robledal by renovating a shack to a preschool. We all had roles, from finding the prices of materials, designing the structure, and presenting our ideas to UCA MiraFlor. UCA MiraFlor and the community of El Robledal will be helping us make our design a reality. Our main goals for our community action project is to fix the roofs, walls, and the exterior of the building. Also by making sure the preschool is sustainable. Our next task was presenting our ideas to UCA MiraFlor, to make sure they are willing to help us and keep the preschool intact. Once UCA MiraFlor was on board we celebrated by enjoying delicious local pan and pastries from a panderia. I then conducted a seminar to break down the roles and assignments and how as a team we were going to deliver our project. We had free time where some of us called home at the internet cafe, bought souvenirs, or worked on our CAP project.

Our next field trip was a breakdancing class at the Centro Recreativo. Most of us have never breakdanced before so it was a new experience. We came out of our comfort zone and tried something new. We ended the night with our daily nightly meeting and a documentary called Shake the Dust which was about breakdancing and the history about it. We are all excited for tomorrow which is our FUN DAY!!! I passed on my duty as el líder del dia to Lorenzo. We are all excited to conduct out community action project and begin building an amazing preschool for the community. Thank you for all the love and comments from the blogs it means the world to all of us. Keep commenting!!!!!
