Stories from EBPP students on extra curricular Empower programme: A strange window appears, click “close” button!

By: Wayan (girl), 17 years old, Senior High School grade 2, Jatituhu

Thursday, January 21, 2016. It was the second class of Empower Computer. That day was the first day my friends and I touched a computer. It was seven computers for all of us, so we got one computer for 2 students. Although the computer was limited, it was not affecting our passion to learn computer. We are still enthusiastic to learn.

All that I’ve learned that day was very hard. I was very nervous, stressed, worried, and scared. It is because, even though I didn’t touch the computer, some strange window appeared. I yelled to the teacher and asked for help. The easy thing that I could do was to close the window again and again. Beside it, changing wallpaper was a great thing. It was fun because I could change the wallpaper by using my favorite picture on the computer.

I hope I could able to operate the computer. I will keep my spirit for learning and never give up.

Reminds me when i started on my first computer many moons ago. I thought it might break if i touched too many keys… and the funny thing was .. it did. 🙂
These days it is hard to break a computer.
