When my friend recommended that I should be a part of the team, I did research on what the team did in the college community and instantly wanted to be a part of this ground-breaking team. I feel like communication skills and being comfortable with many views are both great necessary qualities to have when dealing with a diverse college campus. I am very open minded and respect other people’s views even though they might not agree with my views. I possess great social skills and find myself very personable. I get along well with multiple different people which I think would be a great addition to the counseling team.
The Freedom Writers Diary, written by The Freedom Writers and Erin Gruwell, is a book compiled of diary entries written by Erin Gruwell’s students. These diary entries detail the students’ lives; their struggles, their achievements, and their failures. Many say that this book is “inappropriate,” and try to ban this book from school curriculums because of the real topics that this book goes over, such as addiction, abuse, racism, and more. However, reading about these topics is actually beneficial to students. By allowing students to relate to characters in the book, students are able to see that they are not alone in their struggles.
Twisted This summer, I chose to read the book Twisted which was written by Laurie Halse Anderson. In Twisted, I noticed how each of the main characters personality traits played a key role throughout the story. I realized who I would and wouldn’t enjoy as a classmate. I know that classmates can “make or break” a class so they’re an important part in a classroom environment. If you have classmates who respect, listen, and lend their helping hand to each other, then you will most likely have a great classroom environment and experience in that class.

From contesting for this position to getting elected and working for betterment of my house group, I gained a lot of experience and self-confidence and became more responsible. Being a vice captain, I played an important role in addressing and motivating students, advising and helping them, and earning points for my group by participating in many competitions alone or in a team. I also served as the student voice of the school to a variety of external and internal constituents. The student council served as a bridge between the students and the school heads and administration. Similarly, I would like to serve as a resource to university administration.
She starts off the book by asking a series of questions so the reader can identify with a certain mindset. I thought this was helpful as it allows the reader to determine which mindset they currently have and how they can change or continue to have that mindset. As the author says throughout the book, “you can change your mindset” therefore if you did happen to lean more towards the fixed mindset you could easily change it by focusing towards the growth mindset (Dweck 14). Next, Dr. Dweck explores the ideas of labels and how by changing a few words it affects the individual later. In one group she praises them for being smart.
Good communication skills, which includes listening, allows the student to interact with the professors and classmates in a manner that will extend beyond the classroom. These communication skills allow the student to develop a close relationship with their clients which encourages the client to achieve more in their therapy. After graduation, these students are more than just a physical therapist to their clients. They are friends, counselors, and mentors. Good communication skills allow these students to be the best professionals that they can be.

This may be due to the fact that social gamification affordances shape the beliefs concerning behavioral control. Seeing that the chat facilitates communication between members, the ease of playing together is raised. Additionally, according to (Ajzen, 1991), perceived behavioral control is influenced by both past experiences and experiences from friends. Thus it makes sense, as mission days and anomalies are experiences, that SGAMS has a positive influence on perceived behavioral control. Furthermore, the results support the hypothesis, that social gamifications are influencing both positive and negative anticipated emotions.
To charm someone is to attract them. There are a number of criterias to be a charming person. According to Wade(2010), the founder of The Feminine woman, Charm is incredibly important in life because it allows you to connect with anyone and everyone a little deeper than just the ‘basic’ and It attracts people to you – men, women and children alike. Charm enables us to communicate with a person in such a way that like we have met them for a long time, this then does not make it a basic conversation. Basic conversation is something as we call it as a ‘small talk’, or like a getting
I absolutely love working with high school students. I taught high school before, but counseling in a high school creates a different dynamic with the students. I love interaction, relationship with students, counseling and diversity of each day. Working with students and families through the college admissions process is quite rewarding and provides a nice balance to the problems that I handle day to day. I love the positive and proactive spirit of applying to college and the excitement it brings to the student.
