Did you meet your goals for the project? How can/could you tell? How would you improve on future learning opportunities like this?
I met the majority of my goals for Eminent. I now know much more information on Dr. Brian May than I did before, and I absolutely have a greater admiration for him. I was able to introduce what he has done to people who had never heard of him and leave an impression on them. I was able to have meaningful conversations with some lovely people. I was also able to bond even further with my fellow TALONS students. If I could improve on one thing, I would have to say my learning center. I feel that it was sufficient, but it definitely didn’t do my person justice with my display. If I had managed my time more efficiently then I could have had a much better display. I am looking forward to next year where I will be going ALL OUT!
What will you remember about Night of the Notables?
The biggest thing that I will remember about Night of the Notables would be the conversations I had with people. The majority of people who came to my center had either only heard of Queen or Freddie Mercury, or had just never heard of either (gasp!) I found it very rewarding to get to educate people both on one of the greatest bands in history, as well as one of the greatest guitarists, who also happens to be so much more. A few kids came by and they left with an interest in Queen, and being able to keep the music alive is so validating to me.
Who would you like to thank, or recognize, for their contributions to Night of the Notables?
I would like to thank Ms. Mulder, Mr. Salisbury and Mr. Morris for their help with everything. They did so much for the event itself and I am extremely grateful to all of them. I would also like to thank all of the family members who showed up to support us and helped us through the process, we couldn’t have done this without your support. I would like to thank the custodians for being so tolerant of us and helping us clean up afterwards. I want to thank Dr. Brain May for being such a cool person and providing me with an extremely interesting project that never left me bored. Last but definitely not least I would like to thank all of my peers, both Grade 9’s and 10’s. I love you all so much and I can’t thank you enough for helping me through this project. I feel so lucky to be a part of the beautiful family that we call TALONS.
Cheers everybody! To a successful Night of the Notables!
