I never thought that teaching someone how to use Facebook or print their online bank statements would be so satisfying. The computer lab has been open for 2 days now and Mun and I have already helped a handful of people. We are also getting a decent response on community members that would like to sign up for introductory computer classes. On Wednesday, a woman named Mia Gonzales came by the lab and seeked my help on facebook and with printing her online bank statements. She was a really nice woman who owns an art gallery down the street. I helped her with her business facebook page by showing her how to upload photos. She was very interesting to talk to and showed me her various friends on facebook who are well known community members around the city. She was a pleasure to work with and I am looking forward to seeing her in the future. There are many problems with the lab the main issue being the computers are outdated and extremely slow. It is going to be difficult to teach when the computers are not even working correctly! Hopefully, in the near future we will be able to replace the computers or least fix them so they are running correctly.
