Prepared vs. Practical…Yara El Mowafy

Prepared vs. Practical…Yara El Mowafy

A week has now gone by during which I’ve been a remote apprentice. The past few weeks I’ve had several transitioning meetings, several follow-up meetings, a conference call and many emails. With that and a full time job I’ve noticed that I’ve been burdening myself with carrying around a seven pounds laptop. When it comes […]

Computer Posture…Stephanie Yang

Computer Posture…Stephanie Yang

iMADdu embraces technology utilizes to give students the experience they so desire and need. Personally, I more than approve of the use of technology here at iMADdu, however this entails a lot of time at the computer. However, when I am concentrating on work on the computer, I completely ignore my posture. This directly affects […]

Falling Out of Routine…Stephanie Yang

Falling Out of Routine…Stephanie Yang

Whether you like it or not, you will fall into certain routines in life. Although it may take a while sometimes to fall into routine, it also takes a while to sometimes fall out of routine. Although the nature of work at iMADdu is not exactly the same every single day, the routine that I […]

A-Okay Narcotic Habit…Stephanie Yang

A-Okay Narcotic Habit…Stephanie Yang

I love productive days. I love being busy. I love accomplishment. This love makes me have a tendency to bite off more than I can chew, but I always pull through and when I do it is a great feeling. Euphoric almost. Thus, I’ll never learn to take ‘smaller bites.’ Perhaps talking about how iMADdu […]

You’ve Got Mail…Stephanie Yang

You’ve Got Mail…Stephanie Yang

I was never one to frequently check their e-mail – once a day was usually the norm. If there is one personal change that my experience with iMADdu has made, it’s checking e-mail. Every day to get work done for iMADdu, I started off with checking e-mail. It was a habit I was forced to […]

I Did That…Stephanie Yang

I Did That…Stephanie Yang

Time is of the essence. Time is a very important thing to all of us, thus wasting someone’s time is rather disrespectful. I have been in the workplace where I spend days, weeks, months even, working on a project. I finish the project and feel accomplished, but when this project is not used or even […]

Brainwashed…Stephanie Yang

Brainwashed…Stephanie Yang

“Make a difference.” “Made a difference.” “It makes a difference.” “Making a difference.” These are just a few variations of the same message which has been engraved into my head. I spend my weekends working with my church youth group. As a teacher, I often speak in front of them and lead discussion topics with […]

Compliment Someone Today…Stephanie Yang

Compliment Someone Today…Stephanie Yang

“Never miss an opportunity to compliment someone.” That was my lesson of the week that I learned from Mona. Obviously as my supervisor, she was addressing this concept from a business perspective. However, I realized that this shouldn’t be just from a business perspective but a norm that I should live by. By making this […]

The Contract…Stephanie Yang

The Contract…Stephanie Yang

I am guilty, along with many others, for not reading every line of an agreement let alone every word. So when I was given an assignment to write out a draft contract, I was lost. I had to not only figure out what the message I needed to get across was, but also how to […]

The Follow-Up…Stephanie Yang

The Follow-Up…Stephanie Yang

After a first date, we gauge the other party’s interest by seeing how the follow-up procedure plays out. I am no love guru, but it is said that how one follows up after a first date often determines the level of effort, interest and commitment which serves as the base of the relationship. Furthermore, it […]
