How did you become interested in Mouse?
Peizhu first became interested in Mouse because of the opportunities to design with technology and participate in apprenticeship opportunities. Because of Mouse, Peizhu feels better equipped for college and a career.
“Going through the design process Mouse teaches has helped me in life to learn that designing is not just about drawing on paper--it’s about creating an idea and following through with it.”
How has teamwork helped you grow?
Peizhu understands working in teams may be difficult at times, but the benefits are huge. Teams combine individuals with different skills and abilities. Members learn from each other and becomes stronger as one team.
What do you think about the design process?
Peizhu is fascinated with problem-solving. Mouse inspires her to create “wild and crazy ideas.” She believes the design process Mouse teaches can be used in other areas of her life. Often at home she finds a problem or opportunity, brainstorms on solutions, and improves on her work until it’s “just right.”
