Hartlaub Skype

Skype is the next generation and upgrade of being able to communicate with others rather than talking on the phone. Although I generally don’t use Skype very much , when I would Skype it would be to just talk to a friend. Or use it to work on a project with a friend. But I do have friends that use Skype to talk to family members that are away or live far away, or friends or family in the military.


Felicia Lease – Kiva Page

Theara is a 19 year old college student in Cambodia. She’s working on her bachelor’s degree and majoring in accounting. She’s on her second year in college and doesn’t have enough finances to cover her tuition fees. Her dream is to get her bachelor’s degree, get a proper job, and build her own house.

It felt good to help someone out who needed the help.

This website seemed kind of cheesy because I feel like some of the people asking for money already have enough money, they just want more. Some people are asking for money for stupid things too.

Yes I’d like to help someone like this in the future but only if I felt that it was for a good cause.


Eunice is a 26 year old women that lives in Kenya. She has to support 7 family members. She has been practicing farming for awhile. she needs fertilizer and seeds and get more farm produce for sell. Her hopes and dreams are to expand her growing of cash crops to be more successful. 

I chose her because she needs money to support her children. Without money to support her children she has no way to educate them and get them things they need to live. Her children sound like a top priority. Also she needs money for herself. She needs a house and things to put in it.

Helping her would be a nice thing to do. I would feel bad for not helping the the people that need it. She already has 18% of help she needs 225 more dollars to be done.

Kiva is great. It is very good for the people it benefits. Kiva is a benefactor for people in small poor countries. There should be more websites like kiva.

I would like to help someone like this in the future. I feel like there will be more websites created like this in the future. The people who create these websites are probably happy with their accomplishments.

I chose Netty to help because her description reminded me much of myself. Her description described her as a group leader, and a hard working individual. It made me feel very good to help her because it feels good to give to those that are less fortunate. Kiva is a very good way to help those in need but I personally feel as though the loan policy that they have should not be the way it is. I believe that it should be that you give the money to the group or person and that they should not get it back, because some people might give a lot of money only because they know they will get it back not because it is the right thing to do. I would like to help this way in the future, but I would also like to go to a third world country to give my time, money, and effort to help make their daily lives better.

Hour of Code – Ben Fleischman

I did the Flappy Code and the Hour of Code tutorials.

The tutorials were easy for me because I know basic coding and did all these things before. I was slightly annoyed doing the repetition over and over again. It was a refresher in learning all I’ve been through to get to the point I was at in my programming journey.

Computer programming and computer science are important things for the ever changing future because everything we do involves technology and some kind of computer along with it.

I chose to help Wilfred because he wanted a dairy cow for production and to feed his family. I understood this from both points of view. I understand this as making money for his family and feeding them too. It’s a smart decision so that’s why I would give him money.

It made me feel useful to feel like I could help this person, I wish it was possible to help everyone but I can’t so I try to help as many people as possible.

The idea of Kiva is nice, because it helps people in need and shows people hope in humanity can possibly do nice things for other people.

I could possibly help people like this in the future because I hope I can make an abundance of money to give.

I chose to help Jose because he is just a guy with a low income trying to support his family and raise his children in better conditions. He doesn’t make a whole lot from his small farm but from the information on his Kiva page you can tell he’s been working really hard. I believe this man deserves some extra money.

It makes me feel good to help people, especially ones in need. This Kiva thing is a really good idea and I would definitely contribute in the future.
