Final Preparation (4 October 2019)

I had a final meeting with Project Somebody before our workshop. Youth Corps provided us a space at The Red Box to prototype our cards. We printed our cards and laminated them. We also had to recce the room that we were using for the workshop so that we can plan how we could conduct the activities. The room was smaller than expected, but we had to make do with what we were given. So, we decided to remove the tables and chairs to make more space.
