This week is a fresh start for all of us, not only because we have already settled down, but also because the project is about to take off officially since this week.
Bob arrived at May 20th and we met together with Dr. Arnold and Dr. Judith for discussing further about our expectations on re-operating Fiti kitchen. While, Dr. Arnold and Dr. Judith expressed their concerns on the challenges of financial issue within school. Fiti kitchen requires to open a business account, however, there was a challenge to open a separate business account. Dr. Arnold suggested we should have meetings with Dean and Principal to seek any applicable suggestions. Both Dean and Principal showed their interests on re-operating Fiti kitchen and they suggested us to write a business proposal. Luckily, we have found the previous proposal which was written by Emily and Wenna (2018 interns) last year. With the help of Dr. Arnold, Dr. Judith, Eunice and Bob, we edited and added some new parts based on the original copy of proposal. Also, we completed an excel sheet of projected revenue and cost. We finished everything within 2 days. Such a productive week!
I really appreciate that Bob could come in the first 2 weeks which really helped me to get familiar with our project, faculty members and local students. With the help of Bob, Dr. Judith and Dr. Arnold introduced 2 students, Monicah and Maureen, from student association to me. I have built a great relationship with Eunice, Monicah and Maureen. All of them are willing to commit themselves into our project of re-operating Fiti kitchen and sensory evaluation. Hopefully, we could built a dream team together in a sustainable way.
