It had always been this young Frenchwoman’s dream is to present the weather – and because of more than 200,000 people, her wish was granted.

Segard had been preparing for her big segment consistently, accepting tips from the producers on the most proficient method to present in front of a green screen. Finally, on Tuesday, she knocked it out of the park.

Her objective, she says, was to indicate everybody that a person with handicaps was equipped for performing services that capable people could do – on national TV, no less.

Her achievement is credited to the production of a Facebook campaign titled “Mélane peut le faire” – or “Mélanie can do it” in English. Made by Unapei, a charity that helps people with disabilities, the page collected more than 225,000 likes in support of Mélanie’s goal.

Regardless of not having the capacity to read or write, agents say that Segard’s stellar performance has opened doors for handicapped individuals across the nation.

“Symbolically, it’s very strong that a young woman with an intellectual disability can come before millions of French people to do something that is close to her heart. This shows that these people have abilities,” Unapei’s president Luc Gateau told to French newspaper La Croix.


New Year Resolution

Today, I would like to welcome the year 2015 and say goodbye to 2014. This year I’ve decide to make some new year resolution.

  • To earn more money!
  • To be more healthier which include food, exercise and life style habit….currently I’m drinking a fermented drink called kefir.
  • Learn more ~ anything that would interest me!
  • Give time to my family and friends!
  • To be more humble.

So far, base on my last year resolution, I only achieve about half of it. I feel sad that I couldn’t achieve them all. So I guess I’ll just add them to this year list! Currently my total underachieved is about 21…but this year I’ll definitely finish and do them well.

Happy New Year!

Charge to experience

One thing I’ve learn from my experience is always be ready of the unexpected.

Today in a word of technology, we always rely on computers. Based on my research, there are various fields where computers are widely used. And one of this fields is education. laptop repair

As a student, most of the time I rely on computer to do my research, make my reports and even playing games when I get bored. In an incident where my laptop died while I was making my thesis report, I felt helpless and clueless on what to do.

If my laptop didn’t broke I wouldn’t know about the smps repair. If you are dealing the same problem as mine, you should check out that site. It may help you deal with any electic device problem.

I am not an electrical student or a technician but the instructions are detailed and it works for beginners and technicians. I know this can help you as it help me with my power supply problem.

The Unexpected One!

Have you experience that you are in a middle of something and suddenly there’s an intervention?

When making a thesis report, time and effort is always present. I felt like its forever to finishworking laptop it.When I was about to finish the last page of my report then suddenly my laptop died. I was stunned and I can’t recall if I have save the last page of my report or not. I can’t understand the feelings at the moment. I was worried and crying because I really work hard on that report.

Then I remember that my laptop has been acting weird, lately. I just ignore it because I only thought of finishing my thesis report. I was so desperate but then I don’t know what to do. The only thing on my mind is getting a failing mark.

I called my mom and told her about what had happened. She suggested to bring my laptop to a repair shop. When I was in the shop, the guy that was fixing my laptop said to me that it was the power supply that caused the problem.

When my laptop was fixed, I was so happy that seems like I was carried by the angels when I walk out from that shop. I know every student can relate from my experience. One thing I’ve learn was always hit the button save and store your important files on emaill accounts. In this ways, it will help you continue even some intervention appears.
