This is because they have very little choices as their environment restricts them from making a change in the direction of their lives.

With this in mind, I learned that my actions can affect others, but on this day I also learned that trying to fit in is not always the best thing to do. It all started on a Saturday night when my friend Kimberly decided to sleep over. At sixteen years old I was not much of an outgoing person like Kimberly was. As time started to pass by, we couldn 't decide what to do. "We should go to this party I heard about," Kimberly said.
Personal Learning Experience it is often said that some lessons you will never learn from, in my case I had to have a personal learning experience. The lessons I had to learn was speaking up or people would walk all over me. Speaking up in different situations isn’t always easy. The second lesson was you cant give your heart to everybody because they might just misuse it. The third thing with my personal experience is you can’t be friends with everybody especially if God didn’t send them your way.
In addition to this I am quite introverted and have never enjoyed talking about myself. As a result of this I often struggle in interviews and fail to mention key facts that would improve my employability in order to not appear boastful or too unreserved. To combat this, I did a number of things. One of the first things I did was speak to other students who have previously had interviews in this section. This was especially beneficial as not only could they reassure me that it would be fine, they were also able to give me advice on the things to talk about.

Most importantly, since the contents of this course are largely different from what I have learned in my major courses. I regard this as a rare opportunity for me to take on some new challenges, and I would like to take a chance to develop my leadership skills. Before attending this course, “leadership” is a word quite far away from me, and I only have some basic understandings of it. And I found out that most of my thoughts I had about leadership are very different from what it really is. In fact, leadership is an art rather than a science.
We tend to question things that are unfamiliar to us. We choose to be ignorant of the truth because we can’t quite grasp the real reason behind it. Often we are too caught up with our feelings that we don’t realize the things that it has caused us. We choose to be blinded because we cannot believe the fact that the people we care about the most, will turn to us. When we are betrayed by people we care about the most, we try to justify what they did.
“I want to be a civil engineer.” It was in the third grade when I made that statement in front of the class. At that time, I did not have a concrete idea what civil engineers do. It just sounded nice to me when my mother said that it’s a good career. Without a second thought, I plan to take BS Civil Engineering after graduating from high school. It’s a bliss when I managed to gain admission as a civil engineering student in the premiere university in the Philippines.
The impression of reflecting on what I have learnt over the preceding weeks are often frustrating struggle for me since I habitually contend that I have learnt nothing! Though, incredible that I suppose I might not comprehend that I am actually learning and altering my judgments and philosophies on materials of any significance. Being conversant with the new originations and thoughts often necessitate a great deal of reading, writing, group work and active participation on module forums which can construct a bit of intellectual reluctance but also ask probing questions for the purpose of learning activities. Irrespective in the end, I recognize that I have learnt because I have proficient new ideas, thoughts and intuitions to new tools, technologies and abilities, yet pinpointing and cataloguing exactly what I have learned appears tiring. Is learning changing one’s mind?
In the beginning, of course I don’t feel like I want to do this presentation, or anything related to any subject that require me to do a presentation because nobody likes to do homework, or just study.
