You can do it!

Anything you want to do, but don't know how to get started? Project Help Me has your back! We have information on anything and everything. And if we don't have it, check out our forum. Post your questions there!

Have you ever felt like trying something new, but didn't know where to start? Or is it that the odds were stacked against you? This is a problem that the majority of us face in our day to day lives. We feel that the odds are stacked against us, and therefore we give up too easily. Those who choose to persevere often face many difficulties due to lack of resources. And we often feel as if we are alone and no one can relate to us. This is the issue that we set out to solve.

Using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, we created an interactive website where users can go to look for motivation and tutorials on how they can accomplish their goals and dreams. We have a wide variety of categories, from Health and Education to Hobbies. We also created a forum in which users can post their questions/comments. They can also respond to other user's posts. If they would like to stay connected to the forum, they can create a profile. By creating this forum, we are giving the user's the chance to connect with others from around the globe.

Our greatest challenge was creating the drop-down menu bar. Combing JavaScript (to make it so that when the user scrolls over the different subjects, the options drop-down) was very difficult. Through doing research, and thanks to the help of our wonderful teachers, we were able to make it work.

"So creative. (Project Help Me) focuses on an issue that is so common, that many of us (computer scientists) do not even think about solving it with code. I've never seen anything like Project Help Me before."

K.E.A. to Succes was founded in the summer of 2016 by three high school students. Co-founders Karena, Emily, and Alondra came together with one dream:to create a site that would help out any and everyone. With exactly one week to pitch, plan, create, and present their product, they came up with Project Help Me.

This project was made by Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program students at UIC - Grace Hopper.
