The overall semester definitely had its up’s and downs . As a Peer Mentor I have learned to appreciate my hardwork much more and also learned that speaking up a lot is key to key action to many things. One of my goals for the semester as a Peer Mentor was to get to know my peer mentees on a friendship level or maybe as acquaintances. That goal actually came true in a way because I only made three acquaintances only. Another goal I had throughout the semester was to go outside of my comfort zone a little, I really didn 't like to talk in front of the class.
By getting accepted as a Coolidge I will have the mentoring experience that I have always wished for. I will also get to become an impregnable leader through the training program. This is important because to improve a community one has to be an exemplary leader first. Furthermore, I would love to become a greater leader because currently in my generation, regrettably, only one member has gone to college. My parents unfortunately did not even get a full elementary education because of this I see on a daily basis how a life without proper education is like.
Obtaining a postsecondary education is important to me because I have a passion for helping people and learning. As a first-generation postsecondary student, I understand the values of education. I grew up with my parents always telling me that I am lucky because I will have a chance to get an education, most people live struggling to make ends meet because they didn 't have a chance, just like my parents. As someone who comes from having very little, I always prided myself on the fact that I can, at least, have an education. Also, from the volunteered work I have done every chance I get I believe a postsecondary education will give me a chance to give back.
It doesn 't even compare. Especially Senior Quest, that was really important for our crew. It was a real turning point and our crew really came together during senior quest.” Hearing that inspired me to try and keep my crew together, which is ironic because our journey has only just started. But, we aren 't that close right now, and it 's better safe than sorry. Another thing that we talked about that I found interesting were classes.
Self Reflection over an Introduction to Adaptive Leadership When first signing up for this class I believed it to be a class about learning how to become a leader, or an even better one. After watching the course introduction and learning more about this class I learned that it was not what I thought it was about, but would still value me greatly. As I have examined the history of different leadership styles and theories I have expanded greatly on what I knew about leadership, learning specifically about adaptive leadership. I can also say that I have seen growth in my journals over the past few weeks, as they have started to grasp a better understanding of adaptive leadership. This course has also expanded on different aspects of adaptive leadership such as: disequilibrium, diversity, running experiments, and the four KLC competencies of civic leadership.
My High school is the best school for me. In saying this I mean that my high school might not be the most challenging but it has helped me out in a lot of ways. With that in mind I have to admit that San Jacinto Christen Academy has not prepared me for college as I believe it should have. It has how ever made me a better person and who I am today. I am not prepared for the work that I am going to get when I attend college but I am prepared in a different way one that most people ever even think about.
Learning to make a specific plan for my daily tasks and make a to-do list to make my day as productive as possible is something very helpful which was advised to me by the instructor of this lecture Mr. Irfan. What I mean by specific is that it is time-specific and nature-specific. In addition, I have always heard of the term SMART but I did not give it my attention because I thought it would be just like many other useless methods of time management. However, the way this lecture illustrated this term or method is very unique and has helped me in implementing this method in my daily life. For instance, a goal should be time-based, for years I used to set goals or tasks and never put a deadline or timeframe, so I keep procrastinating until I lose track of time and eventually finishing the task in as imperfect way or not finishing it at all.
During my freshman year, I had the opportunity to volunteer and help others. Before this year, I had never volunteered before, so I knew this was my opportunity to do some community service to better others. I have found through my experience that I really love to volunteer, so I will continue volunteering on my own, rather than just doing it for a class. Doing service projects is a great way to get involved with the community. There are always people and businesses looking for help, and it is usually easy to find a way to help, especially when you are in FBLA.
Ever since I could remember, the notion that every action I take and every statement I say reflects on my family was instilled into me by my parents and grandparents. They valued honesty and loyalty, expected my full effort, and demanded that I find success in life. Because of this, I believe that my success is measured in usefulness and compassion, rather than my happiness. While many of my actions results in my happiness, I do not actively seek it out since my duty is to affect the lives of others for the better. Success is also based on how much effort I put into helping the people in my community while staying true to my
Values are principles that people hold important to them in life. As I gotten older my values have changed based on my experience, knowledge, and goals. Since I am in college and the field of social work forced me to open my eyes to different things and ideas I would 've never thought of. Five values that are important to me while I am on this journey of becoming a social worker is my education, positive energy, not judging people based on their past, a reflect and meditate on my life, and be a generous to other. Education is my number one important value in my life at this moment.
Would you volunteer for this organization again? Why or why not? Of course, I will. Moreover, I have plans to persuade my sister, some of my friends and people who take an interest in volunteerism and social development. The Hub Childline Foundations gave me lots of good experience and good memories even though there are many facing problems come to me sometimes, but that makes me learn to resolve riddle and grow up because in daily life of mine didn’t happen that much.
This course hasn’t influenced my career plans, but it has enhanced how I manage my projects and interact with colleagues on a daily basis. Furthermore, this class and all of my future classes will really be useful as I retire and become a self-employed government contractor. Reading about companies like Lincoln Electric, and how well they manage their employees and business inspires me to incorporate many of those techniques into my own company vision and mission. I’m using more critical thinking in my day-to-day activities and decision making. Critical thinking forces me to slow down and make better decisions.
As a freshman, I thought this was out of reach for me and pointless to work toward so I decided to put NHS out of my sight. I did not realize my potential as a young scholar; in doing so, I set myself back academically. My priorities were set on understanding the hectic schedule instead of the vigorous goals that I have now. As a fourteen year-old in freshman year, my standards were set lower for myself since I was unorganized and lost majority of the time. I lacked skills in time-management and multitasking; skills which I practiced and perfected through my school’s use of the modular schedule.
Young staff well educated through the Fire School Academy, motivated to do more for the Department. He did not get the result he was expecting. Today he still hold the position of assistant to the trainer but the Training Officers position has been
I feel grateful for the guidance and friendship that my advisors at Park have given me. While there are many things I hope my next advisor learns about me, and there are two important things I would like my Dana Hall advisor to know about me. Over the years, I have grown passionates for many different hobbies. I have always had a passion for arts and craft and I started doing more in second grade After a long day at school, I began to attend crocheting lessons as something fun and relaxing. At first, I didn 't think I would enjoy it, but after I completed my first project, a headband, I felt very proud of myself that I made a headband designed by me that I could wear.
