OCOE Experience

OCOE Experience

HI. I'M Alijauan Epps an OCOE Participant.

MY OCOE EXPRIENCE WAS A GREAT AND WELL NEEDED EXPERIENCE. IT OPENED MY MIND TO SO MUCH MORE THAN WHAT I CAN LEARN FROM THE INTERNET OR BOOKS, OCOE TAUGHT ME ALOT OF THINGS I CAN NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS IMAGINE THAT WAS HAPPING TO THE WORLD AND TO MY COMMUNITY AND ENVIRONMENT AS A WHOLE. THE KNOWLEDGE I TOOK  FROM OCOE CAN NOT BE IMITATED NOR DUPLICATED, BECAUSE IT WAS AN INTERACTIVE HANDS ON PROGRAM THAT ALLOWED ME TO GAIN KNOWLEDGE AND A LITTLE EXPRIENCE ABOUT HOW TO MAKE THE ENVIRONMENT  BETTER. WITH WHAT I TOOK FROM OCOE I CAN GO OUT AND HELP OTHERS BECOME AWARE ABOUT THEIR COMMUITIES AND ENVIRONMENT AND HOW TO MAKE THE PLANET, IF NOT THE PLANET THEN THEIR COMMUNITY A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE AND STAY. HERE IS SOME OF THE INPUT FROM OTHER PARTICIPANTS: 

  • JAMELL- I LEARNED ALOT ABOUT TECHNOLOGY AND HEARD OF WEBSITES I NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE. I LEARNED NEW THINGS I NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO LEARN AND HAD THE ABILITY TO SEE THE ENVIRONMENT IN A DIFFERENT AND MORE UNDERSTANDING OUTLOOK. IT ALLOWED ME TO SEE  NATURE MORE IN A FIRST PERSON POINT OF VIEW RATHER THAN A BOOK OR THE INTERNET CAN TELL ME.
     
    DEANDRE- I LEARNED ABOUT TECHNOLGY AND STUFF I NEVER KNEW I LEARNED THAT WE NEED TO START RECYLECLING  PLASTIC AND OTHER REUASBLE ITEMS. I LEARNED THAT ALOT OF THE WORLD CAN BECOME A BETTER PLACE IF WE RECYLCE AND TAKE A STAND ON OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT AND UNDERSTAND THE DESTRUCTION WE ARE DOING TO OUR ENVIRONMENT AND MY COMMUNITY.
     
    JOHN- I HAVE LEARNED MORE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF PARKS THAT I NEVER BEEN TO NOR HEARD OF. I LEARNED AND HEARD ABOUT ANIMALS AND BIRDS I NEVER HEARD OF LIKE SNAKEHEADS. I LEARNED HOW TO MAKE AN APP. THE OCOE PROGRAM MADE ME FEEL LIKE I BELONG AND HAD A VERY WELCOMING FEELING AND ATMOSPHERE.
     
    PLEASE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT OCOE IT HAS A LOT OF POTENTIAL AND WILL CONTINUE TO GROW.
