Final Reflection on my team
Toward the end, I really don’t feel a ton of feedback for my team anymore. There are a lot of things that I did get so frustrated with them but I really am very appreciative that they can be pulling the final presentation through. I’m genuinely very impressed at the final product but I honestly do not feel too participated in the project throughout.
For the final investor package, I wrote the two emails for the investors and the one-pager for the team but I didn’t get to see the presentation until the morning before the presentation. That was how I was designated to do by Ignacio and Javier. I think it’s honestly really troubling that they insist on using PowerPoint instead of google slide because I can not see or change anything from the slides. I have to ask Javier permission for changing anything and he will execute on his end. Ignacio texted the group that they are going to take care of it during the weekend and asked me and Javier Bermudez to only work on the rest of it. So I did all the rest and Javier Bermudez proofread it. I don’t think I did get to contribute equally to the project as I only wrote two emails and the one-pager but I never got the chance to permit to make modifications to the final presentation so I do consider myself contributed as much as I can in my jurisdiction.
If I can put a quantitative attribute on each of the group members, I’d guess Javier contributed 35%, Ignacio contributed 30%, Pedro contributed 10%(I’m not sure how they divide the work, Pedro never talked in the group chat but he may talk more to Javeri and Ignacio more at home). I contributed 20%(if not counting the material I made for the group and completely disregarded from the team) and Javier Bermudez probably 5%(he’s definitely the nicest one to me although I know he didn’t do any work at all for the project).
However, I know I learned a lot from working in this team. This is definitely been a rollercoaster emotional journey I had working on this project. Although I did not get to achieve have a sick idea and foundational team at the end, I learned a lot about processes, dealing with people who is very different from me, and trying to cope with a difficult situation with coworkers. From this class, I have learned a lot about how hard it is to build a business and the implications behind it. I don’t think it is for me anymore and I probably will consider still just keep pursuing to be a data engineer. But I’m really glad that I can learn about all of this about myself before I regret it later. Maybe later? I might consider this after I finish grad school around 28. That may feel more confident at me making those kinds of decisions. I am very grateful about this learning journey.
