In general—even prior to my communications class—I consider myself a skilled communicator and a friend that is beyond willing to listen and resolve struggles; however, I did not recognize how much psychology was behind the way we communicate. Former to registering for the class I knew I had areas to improve upon such as body language, lack of self-disclosure, and attribution, all of which I created plans to therefore enhance, yet I had no doubt in my capabilities to be empathetic, skillful at solving conflict, and confident while speaking in front of others. Throughout the class I realized that above my words, my body
I was doing two jobs but nothing seems to be good for me. I spent time thinking about how I can make it in life, so I spoke to my friend Jedidah and she said: “education is the key to progress and knowledge is everyone’s power.” In view of that, I decided to go to college to leave a better life. I had the opportunity to go to the college of my choice but the only activity to pass on is to clarify whether to be a commuter or stay on campus. Along the line, I had a change of mind and this time around decided to stay on campus. My going to college has made me good about my language barrier, being in college I was able to develop interpersonal relationships with other ethnic groups, and going to college has made me explore in a different part of the continents.
The very first year of college is considered to be fun, exciting and adventurous for many students, the ex-students of college never forgets their freshman year which was full of new discoveries along with anxiety and challenges. It’s a completely different life from high school and students sometimes find it difficult to adapt to their new environment and making new friends. The students who are living away from home have to cope a lot with such drastic changes of their life since the pressure of studies increases a lot, its more heavier than you have ever imagined, so much of reading, submission of assignments with short deadlines and endless writing, students can often get frustrated and feel lonely staying far away from their home and
Evolution from Novice to a Beginning Professional Nurse Looking back when I started my nursing school, I can proudly say that I have evolved both physically and psychologically. I was not sure if nursing was the right choice for me at first because I had difficulties interacting with people outside my family circle. The first semester was challenging for me because I did not know how to interact with my class mates and felt isolated each time there is a class activity. I joined a study group later that semester and it has been an excitement ever since. Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress.
Naturally, I needed some help then from a colleague who shared his views on how to select content within a given topic. His answer was simple: ‘choose content that is relevant and significant to the students. What would you use in everyday life?’ It was a hard earned lesson. Phrasal verbs were not my favourite language items and a point I had seldom taught before; what’s more, it was
This is important to me because no one in my family has ever made it past high school I would be the first to go to college and get a degree. Which would be a huge deal for me because it is something I have always wanted. This is not only important to me but to my family they are always pushing me to do my best and are always good influences in my life. This relates to my personal purpose statement because I am staying active with school and in the process, I can meet new people who I can help them improve their self’s. Once I finish my degree and get a job I will be able to experience the world more because I will have more opportunities.
I found out that I need to develop my writing skills more, improve the organization of my ideas and always pay attention to what is being ask in the problem. I wished that I gave more time practicing my speeches, I was not lazy nor slacking but I think I settled. I know I could have done better. However, I feel that I'm accomplished, I gained confidence in speaking in public. The speech class thought me how to be a listener, because if you ask me, I will rather go home after I spoke each meeting.
1 INTRODUCTION The presentation is vital in most fields nowadays. It doesn’t matter that you are a student, job seeker or executives, we should be able to introduce ourselves as well as what we are doing. Knowing this, I felt it is important for me to acquire presentation skills so as I can be able to deliver the intended message to the intended audience. Before taking this course, I was not good in presenting and, to be honest, I don’t like the so-called presentation. But because here at University is a thing that everyone should do especially during Thesis, that’s why I choose to take this course.
The members played a big part in this personal growth of mine, as well. I was shocked when random community members would come up to me to congratulate me on a win or ask how the teams are looking. It was important for me to be assured that they care about the things I was doing. These small conversations felt like an invitation for me to start and hold meaningful conversations with adults. Some of the greatest lessons that I have taken from high school are lessons that have nothing to do with the curriculum.
The all too familiar sound of the school bell rings loudly in my ears as students converse among themselves during my final year of high school, and I think so myself, is college really worth the trouble? It would seem that somewhere such as a classroom would be a place for learning and retaining information that could potentially aid you in the long treacherous path of life later on down the road. For me, the classroom at the time felt like just a social setting, in general, the majority of the time. Also, I spent a big portion of my senior year doubting my chances of higher education, or in other words feeling reluctant about it, to say the least. Whereas many high school students graduate their senior year with goals and ambitions for college, uncooperative staff and teachers did not set me up well for my the future.
