Today we pitched our projects to our parents, they gave us a lot of useful and valid feedback, but the one thing that stood out over everything else was that we should focus in only one topic instead of five, so that we could go more in depth instead of leaving each topic halfway done. This was completely valid, in fact we decided to change our project to only one video; after all it made a lot more sense. But again, we ran into the same problem we’ve had since the first day.

This problem has been torturing the members of Cuéntame Perú since the first day we created the project, but we just seemed to ignore it because it was easier than having to face the reality. We decided to create more useless roles, using them as excuses just to not to have to split the group in two.
I think this new arrangement will do very good to me and to the people in my group, due to that it will push us to get out of our comfort zones and give our best work. Also like this is a small group, I think it’s a great chance for me to work on my leadership skills, that haven’t been really active during the last semester, and start taking leadership roles within the group.
