Successes

Challenges

I chose an unusual topic that I was interested in.

I fully understand my product and I now have a clear view of was EAP involves and how it is helpful to someone in need of therapy.

I faced challenges in my project in getting all of my mentor hours.

I contacted several different Equine Specialist that didn’t return my calls.

Gathering information on EAP was difficult because there isn't a lot of scientific research on EAP.

I faced challenges in uploading my pictures to my website.
