Because of the amount of experience and knowledge that I have gained throughout the course of being a member of Blinn TEAM, I think that it is fair to say that I am a seasoned and worth-while contestant to transfer into Texas A&M. Being on Blinn TEAM has taught me a different level of time management, prioritization, and dedication that I believe fully enrolled Texas A&M or Blinn students do not have the opportunity to experience. Not only am I a Blinn TEAM student- I am a member of the Corps of Cadets, a New Student Conference Orientation Leader, and a student worker. I have ingrained myself to Texas A&M not only academically, but by plunging myself into the culture and tradition. Because of my involvement, and the valuable lessons that
The aim for this approach to is to be cooperative and assertive to create a win-win solution that makes both parties satisfied. In this situation, the other party’s interest should be just as important as yours to create a beneficial solution. Also, good communication helps parties to hear both sides of the situation to avoid any misconceptions. Good communication includes nonverbal cues, such as listening to the other party’s concerns, and verbal cues, such as open ended questions. Referring to Beunza (2013), good communication allows you to find value in what the other party is saying and feeling. This makes you become empathetic to their emotions towards the conflict and creates a comfortable environment where both party’s can be feel understood. Another important skill in confliction resolution is knowing how to properly mediate a conflict. According to Cheng (2015), neutrality is an important aspect of conflict resolution meaning the mediator should be unbiased and open-minded to both parties. With good mediation, conflicts can be resolved in quickly and efficiently. Therefore, with the correct approach, I can be able to resolve conflicts quickly and
Ever since grade school, I was passionate about working in the field of medicine, and science. I enjoyed anatomy, medical spelling and terminology, and reading about the healthcare industry.

English 102 through the Alabama Early College Program has taught me the importance of writing skills. When I first began online classes for English, I quickly started learning techniques that I needed to keep up throughout the semester. Each assignment and essay is due at midnight, therefore starting or finishing an assignment early allows the writer enough time to turn in the assignment. Throughout the five modules, I have learned how to write an argument and rhetorical analysis, conduct research and write an exploratory essay. In each module, I learned writing techniques and skills that I never knew before. English 102 has prepared me for future college classes and future job opportunities. During English 102, I struggled with rhetorical
The profession of Speech Language Pathology enables others to be heard and gives them the ability to have a voice. As a Communication Disorders major, I found my voice through education and personal experiences. During my undergraduate career, I have balanced extracurricular activities, volunteer work, and leadership roles while maintaining superior grades in my coursework. However, my qualities go far beyond my list of accomplishments. Passion, my value of education, and my objective to improve the lives of others have driven me to pursue a career in Speech Language Pathology.
When I first started this course, I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew it would educate me on the matters of choosing a career and post-secondary life but I never realized how in-depth it would be. In the end, I learned so much from this course, I now have a post-secondary plan in mind, and I know which path I need to take to get there. When I look back on all I achieved in the two short weeks of this course, I am extremely proud of all I achieved. I hope to use all the profitable knowledge I obtained in this course for the rest of my life.
Using a structured technique can bring about moderation and gets rid of extremism (Miller, n.d.). Internal conflict can be worked with my mediation. Domenici and Littlejohn (2001) feel that mediation works because of collaboration. The mediation model takes after a transformative way to deal with conflict. The thought is to change the groups or individuals of contention through a procedure of intervention that utilizes empowerment and acknowledgment (Domenici & Littlejohn, 2001). Wronka (2008) mentions that using human right approach affects services. Human service professionals understand human rights ensure equal treatment, fair conduct and allows both sides to be heard. Reamer (2015) writes about self-regulation helping the human service professional to avoid roles that will lead to problems. Knowing weakness, strengths and bias thoughts will bring about more ethical practices and helps the professional work through any conflict that may
It is in the interest of both parties to reduce the number of felons. Additionally, both the citizens and the government want to have a larger voting public. Mediation allows both parties to pursue these goals with policy reform that they see as effective, and then reach a compromise to benefit everybody in the state, regardless of their criminal status. In any mediation, there need to be parties that are brought to the negotiating table. In this instance the parties would be a bipartisan committee of Florida legislators and a group of 20 felons represented by the ACLU. It is important to keep the groups small for mediation because smaller groups are more likely to be successful in mediation talks (Klerman and Klerman 692). While reducing the number of people at the table inevitably reduces the amount of voices that can be represented, the committees will still be large enough as to not marginalize significant voices. Each mediation must also have somebody controlling the discussion. In this instance, legislators in Florida will pass a bill allocating $200,000 to pay for professional mediators from the United States Department of Justice directing the discussion. A professional mediator can analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each case before setting expectations for the results (Klerman and Klerman 691). It is important that
I interviewed holly who is a small animal veterinarian that works in Mankato, Minnesota. The clinic is a medium sized with two full time vets and two, soon to be 3, part time vets. Most of the vets have lots of field experience in a clinic with them graduating from 2010 to 1997. Holly is the most recently added Veterinarian and has been working there for two and a half years. Her schooling first started with an AA degree at a community college and then went to a 4 year with another four years in vet school. She furthers her education every year through classes and training sessions. These hours are required by the state of Minnesota. She does like her job, but if you want to have money and a flexible schedule that you can make it would
Throughout this eight-week summer course, I have learned a lot more than I learned in my Rhetoric 101 class that was over the course of a whole semester. As we learned the first day of class, rhetoric is the art of persuasive speaking and writing. In Rhetoric 101 my writing skills improved drastically, however, throughout this eight-week course they have improved even more. In Rhetoric 101 I never had to give any form of oral presentation, in Rhetoric 102 when I was asked to give one I was nervous. With all the help and preparation, we had before the presentation my nervousness was eased and I was confident with my presentation.
Although, juvenile mediation is not very popular in the United States, it is very popular in European countries. There are over 1,000 juvenile mediation programs worldwide today. The primary goal of these juvenile mediation programs is to ensure that juvenile offenders do not continue being offenders in adulthood. Their secondary goal is to also help the victim gain clarity of why the offender did what they did. In the case of juvenile mediation, it is deemed necessary for restorative justice. The role of the mediator in these programs is to see that nothing goes wrong while the victim and offender engage in conversation. They are put in place to make sure both parties who are mediating are

Mediation is a voluntary type of conflict management. This defines the challengers in an intractable issue, select whether to start or prolong mediation or not, and they keep their command over the result of their issue, with their autonomy to accept or refuse any elements of the procedure or the final contract,
Mediation is a different yet effective way to resolve problems where the parties bring about their own solution to their problem contrary to going in front of a judge or an arbitrator whom will have full control and decide on behalf of you. Mediation helps the parties involved reach a final solution through a mutual and voluntary agreement, this is exactly what makes mediation a process that should be looked into if the situation permits it.
After reviewing my Future Me letter, it was encouraging to see how much I grew in general. From my work in essays and responses and how I felt mentally from where I was when I wrote this letter. I have felt a growth in these past few months. I came into the semester unsure of my critical thinking and unable to get deeper into the subject feeling like I hit a wall with my chisel that is dull and unable to chip away the wall. After the feedback from Cynthia for my responses and essays, I have more confidence in skills as I convinced myself that I was a better storyteller than an essay writer. I may still believe that, but I don’t believe I am as bad as I thought I was with my essay writing and that I am capable to write a good essay. I have been
