Students in high school are juggling hundreds of different things around on a daily basis. There are clubs, and sports, and jobs, and internships, and classes, and grades, and college applications, and the future, and homework, and an entire dark rabbit hole that you can fall down into... once you really start thinking about it. It takes a ton of time in the day to go ahead and manage all of these things, and then one day you are forced to put them all down on a sheet of paper in a matter of moments! That day can come when you are going to be applying for a job, an internship, or a college. It's stressful because all these applications play a key role in your future. There has never really been a place where you can sit down for a bit and talk about what you did... and really reflect.
We, the directors and builders of this platform, noticed this problem as we are students too. It seems like we are pushing forward a million things, and then one day we are stopped and asked, "What you got there"... and all of a sudden you have no words to describe what you are doing. But want to know the real reason why that is? It's because you are ineffable. Ineffable being an English word defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as, " incapable of being expressed in words". So, seeing this problem play out on a day to day basis, we all wanted to come together to make a little place on the internet where you can sit down, have a sip of coffee, and talk about what you are doing. We want you to take a break for a minute and look at that load you have. Add some pictures of different gems hiding in there, and add them to your portfolio. Talk to some people in the community using our networking feature. Read some articles. Then, after you've had a sip of coffee, added to your portfolio, and rejuvenated, you will have the energy to keep on pushing... changing the world and your community. So next time, when someone asks, "What you got there", all you have to do is tell them, "Ineffable.education/[your name]".
Make life simple. Make it yours. Have control. Be ready. Talk to someone. Learn something new. Be ineffable.
