Spending time in a paediatrics office highlighted the challenges in treating children and the traits needed to overcome them. I found that an amiable and spirited demeanour was essential to put the child at ease in a daunting environment. In addition, strong communication with the parents was key for a precise diagnosis as they acted as the child’s voice. I also observed in an operating room which was an insightful experience. This allowed me to work with the elderly where I witnessed the patient’s journey from pre-operative through to post-operative care. I discovered the importance of empathy and understanding as the patients were very frightened and by listening to them, I found I was able to put their mind at ease and give them a more positive medical experience. I was able to speak to both the surgeon and anaesthetist and learnt the immense commitment involved however being able to improve lives was rewarding. I established that nurses play a soothing role for the patient in their whole journey and found their

For my stimulated hearing loss assignment I went to four different locations, which included ODU’s Café, CVS, the movie theater, and my apartment. I attendant these places with two of my friends who were also wearing earplugs. While completing this assignment I used HEAROS ear plugs, which had a NRR of 32.
I have worked with medical students who come from the UA COM-P culture and I believe they bring a great amount of cultural awareness to their role on the healthcare team. The focus of early clinical exposure at UA COM-P makes a significant difference in learning how to care for people. The UA COM-P emphasis on cultural diversity allows for more learning opportunities and fully encompasses what it means to take care of the patient and not just treat a disease. I entered the medical field wanting to be at the bedside helping people. I think this gives me a unique view, and ability to help contribute to UA COM-P diversity centered training and culture. Being at the bedside for 40 plus hours a week for almost 4 years I've learned that all
Ronald Reagan once said, "In the end, it all comes down to leadership." Since I was raised by a single mom, I learned independence early on in my life. This independence led to my ambition, confidence, people skills, and need to help others; these are all vital qualities of a leader. Just like every life-long skill, leadership is taught through experience.
I know this might sound like a cliché answer but I hope to become a more confident and formal speaker over the course of this class. Overall, I would consider myself well spoken, I have no trouble talking to adults, but when it comes to getting up in front of my peers, the nerves set in. I believe this is because I don’t have a lot of experience giving formal speeches, and this class will definitely help with that.
The decision to run for 9th grade representative was one I was very doubtful on. Trying to get my peers to vote for me was something I had never had to overcome. Soon enough though, I found myself on stage with seven other opponents. As each second shed away, my fear of botching the speech intensified. The moment finally came when my name was called and I approached the podium. The spotlight blinded my view of the audience, yet I could feel the presence of the entire eighth grade class bearing down on me.This was something that I had never experienced before. As the words began to flow out, time sped up and what I thought would last hours ended in a few short minutes. As I returned to my seat, something dawned on. I came to the realization that I do have the confidence to speak in front of others and put myself out there. Win or lose, I was going to take this experience as one that revealed to me a skill I thought I never possessed. The following day, the results were revealed and as I expected, I was defeated. In the eyes of the school, I may have been beat, but in my own vision, I had only bettered myself. However small it maybe, the discovery of my confidence was one

Not necessarily speaking about my confidence in talking in front of a classroom, but confidence in the sense of trusting my self and my ability to focus on evaluating myself other than others evaluating me. I am completely comfortable talking in front of a classroom and to other colleagues, but sometimes I lack in the confidence that I have for myself. I understand that making mistakes are apart of being human as the book mentions, but sometimes mistakes can bring my confidence a bit down, especially crucial mistakes. I struggle with the ability to constantly take risk, I tend to overthink things that or question my knowledge. Especially when sharing ideas or opinions I find myself thinking "is it even a good idea?" and I find myself worried about how others are evaluating me. Although i do not show it during presentations or when I am working with students, I sometimes think in the back of my head how my classmates or the students are evaluating me and that sometimes can interfere with my
the churches and stirred their quiet pools. Meetings after meetings are held. The same energetic souls are found busy at their respective work as well as they are engaged in many good works too. But Meyer warns that one must beware that one does not substitute the active for the contemplative, the valley for the mountaintop. One should have time to be alone with God. The concealed and the shut door are indispensable. One should be still and know that God is within thee and around! In the silence of the soul the unseen becomes visible, and the eternal real. He prays that no day should pass without its period of silent waiting before God. - FB Meyer, The Secret of Guidance
