When I first started this program in Spring of 2020, the Capstone course seemed like a lifetime away. Fast forward to the Fall of 2022 and the Capstone journey begins. Initially, I thought we were to break into two groups to negotiate a Collective Bargaining Agreement. But to my surprise, we are being challenged to pick a topic and write a paper. I wasn't sure what I wanted to write about, but I knew that it had to be interesting to keep me motivated. After much research, I found a controversial "Hot Topic" that will impact employers in the near future. I was not sure if I would find enough content to write about but to my surprise, I found quite a few.
As a native Texan, I was surprised to find that Texas has a history of passing some of the most restrictive laws in comparison to other states. I am enjoying the journey because it allows me to tap into what I learned early on in the program. I now understand the distinction between primary and secondary sources which reinforces my legal literacy. At present, I am feeling more comfortable while at the same time feeling some angst. This is my first time using Wix, blogging, and copywriting my work. I am definitely out of my comfort zone when it comes to technology. I am learning to embrace this journey and just go with the flow.
I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from Professor Townsend-Gard and my cohorts. It takes a village collaborating together to finish strong.
All the best,
