    • The first challenge I faced was picking a creative background. I looked online at Microsoft Office online and found free backgrounds to download.
    • The second aha moment I had was the hyperlinks. I had done them before, but I could not figure out how to hyperlink to a certain slide, then I realized that I needed to change the setting to look within this document.
    • The third challenge I had was learning the animations. I was kind of scared because I had never used them before. My sister, Laurel, showed me how. I was pleasantly surprised that they were so easy!
