Was your project meaningful?

Did this project matter? In what ways did it further your knowledge, force you to grow, or provide something useful?

The project challenged my thought on the medical field, as well as bringing many questions to challenge medicines such as opioids.

Was your project deep?

Did you project engage with powerful ideas or tools? Additionally, did you engage with the material in a deep sense (i.e. did you develop ownership over the ideas or tools)? Can you utilize these skills independently now?

It engaged me with the knowledge that all medicines should not always be trusted, as they could bring very much so unwanted side effects onto the human body. I believe I utilize this and be more knowledgeable about these subjects
