I enjoyed listening to others and helping them through difficult times. Pursuing a career in social work will allow me to broaden my skills and support the underprivileged in the community. Social work is the platform that will allow me to improve the lives of others and transform their futures. Social work means supporting my community and discovering ways to educate and give resources to those that are in need. I believe my strengths include patience during a stressful situation, organization when trying to remain balanced, and empathy while helping someone through a difficult time.
I love getting to work with the people here at UNI, but I also want to learn more from others who may have completely different experiences. These are the things that I can learn from and really grow as an educator and person for when I am faced with some of these same things. I can look back on what others before me may have done. STARS will also solidify why I have chosen to pursue a path in student affairs and really open up the doors that I am just peaking

I was also able to interact with parents and provide resources for education, housing, food, and nutrition. These experiences taught me how to tune my ideas into actionable goals fine and how to juggle multiple responsibilities. I was also able to cater my message to various populations and communities in a relatable way. Many of my team members and colleagues were pursuing master’s degrees in social work. My two AmeriCorps years are where I learned how the degree would complement my experience to better my performance as I climb up the career
I will give my best, I will work hard on my task and will use my knowledge in order to make a good work. My enthusiasm and disposal to learn will help me make my contribution to the team worth it. From the experience I hope to gain more knowledge, memories, good experience and why not... friends. My goal in order to contribute to the Conference outreach and growth of the Líderes Network is to introduce the program in my community and campus. This way more people will know the program and young people can benefit from it.
I have taken the Introduction to Social Work course which has solidified my interest in the field. I have learned about the NASW Code of Ethics, the levels of macro, mezzo, and micro and the roles that a social worker takes on within each level, and what it truly means to be a social worker. A social worker is there to provide services and connections to their clients so that they have the skills and abilities to regain their lives and become a self-reliant individual while gaining worth and value as the human being they are. Being a part of the Social Work Club has given me opportunities such as attending Rally in the Valley as well as volunteer work. Attending Rally in the Valley in 2017 exposed me to a wide array of graduate programs for social work.
In particular, I can easily connect with individuals who share similar social identities with me and establish trust between us. My social identities have also prepared myself for interactions with people who do not share similar identities with me by expressing my respect to them and my appreciation for getting to know them and for sharing with me their own identities while having conversations with those individuals. By letting others know about my social identities through interactions and allowing them to do the same, I believe we can learn new things from each other, and together we will grow and thrive as a group. In conclusion, I believe it is essential to know my social identities since this is a foundation for me to know myself better and appropriately interact with individuals who share different social identities than mine. In other words, knowing my social identities helps me to find better ways to maintain good relationships with residents and my co-workers, and this will result in an inclusive and diverse living and learning environment where everyone can be who they are and thrive from meaningful interactions with each
Volunteering is an opportunity to make a lasting contribution in the community. Through this rewarding experience, I not only gained my service hours, but I also was able to contribute a connection with the faculty. I could always go back to them for additional support or advice. Interacting with them enhanced my communication skills. Despite all of this, I noticed how much I enjoyed interacting with children and the faculty.
The task of learning is to be done together, and brainstorm, and everyone does what they can, and the problem becomes easier to solve. More often, I like teamwork because it helps improve my interpersonal skills. The most important part of teamwork is communication. Through communication, we can understand and learn from each other, and we can solve problems through communication when we are in disagreement. I think one thing that I dislike about teamwork
Making the right questions and showing your eagerness to study is a part of good communication which makes people inclined towards explaining and assisting you with their wisdom. To be able to gain as much knowledge as possible, we have to learn from numerous sources, and one of the best approaches is to learn from others’ experience. Attempting that requires us to showcase our will in appropriate manners and the other party to approve of us, which relates to the point that I mentioned earlier about how good communication can help us in establishing relationships, hence make people more open to share and help us. To sum up, I completely understand the value of communication in CA and have been preparing myself with the best I could so as to avoid and battle the potential hardships that I might encounter in the future. As a result, I find that my communication skills are not seriously lacking and hopefully I will not have to encounter major hindrances in forthcoming CA.
Engaging with these individuals have taught me how to work collaboratively, collectively, and cohesively as a group member. In social work there is diversity among clients and colleagues and a social worker must know how to adapt in this changing environment. When faced with challenges, I have sought out the support and advice from professors, social workers, and classmates and this has been effective for me. I found that making preconceived notions about others had limited me, but being in this program has given me an opportunity to meet a diverse group of individuals. This opportunity has allowed me to evolve into a better person, but have made lifetime
Knowing that I changed that life, that because of me hopefully their health will better instead of worsen. Through this program I hope to learn from the community, to learn their experiences, which will allow me to be even more conscious of the disparities they are forced to face, hence causing me to ponder “how can this issue be fixed?”, “what policy can be implemented”?. Being able to connect with the community and with my peers will be a valuable and unforgettable experience. Not only will I be able to learn from the community, but from my fellow peers, medical students, high school students, and other undergraduates as well. Getting to me mentored by people who have done what I want to do will be enriching, it’ll be an experience that ill cherish forever.
I eventually had to recruit my PI to help. This experience has shown me what it is like to be seen as a collaborative leader and is something I have incorporated into my job as a clinical coordinator. My experiences will allow me to continue to learn in a collaborative setting while also focusing my learning with the ultimate goal of benefiting the
I am also from a very diverse environment, in which I can bring a new perspective to this community based off of values that I cherish in my every day life such as hōʻihi (respect), kuleana (responsibility), haʻahaʻa (humility), and mālama (to care). Another value that I have introduced my current leadership team—Setters Leadership and House—was kahiau, which means to give back to the community without expecting anything in return. I can demonstrate my commitment to this society by being actively involved with events that we plan or attend. I will also share my values and incorporate these values in activities that we do to empower each other through academics, leadership and service. Advocating about my values is a form of leadership that I like to share with others to introduce them to my culture and the values that I stand by.
The presentations provided me a great learning experience for me to teach and share what I know in a classroom setting while getting feedback. I felt more at ease with my second workshop in regards to the transition process/pathway to graduate school, as I was sharing my personal experience mixed with that of the facts and figures that I had research to give students a clear understanding of the process. With my future goals of becoming an advisor at a Community College for a first year experience (FYE) program, I am glad to put on my resume that I have started to gain experience teaching, as teaching a college prep course are the duties of advisors in FYE
