Resident Assistants serve many purposes and play many roles in the community. They help to build and promote a supportive and active community within their residence hall and across the campus, and offer support and guidance to their residents. This aids in making Geneseo feel more like home and a community rather than simply a school. RAs enforce Geneseo and Department of Student Life rules, while also being a more easily accessible and less intimidating resource to other students in need of help. I want to be an RA so that I can become more involved in the Geneseo community in a positive way, by helping and representing other students.
Many of my mentors and supervisors also tole m that I needed to pursue this field. One particular professional encouraged and challenged me to get involved, apply for student employment, seek opportunities and go to conferences about leadership and diversity. This person was one of the first that inspired me to think about ways that I could do the same for incoming students. Much of the support I received during college was through the Student Affairs professionals. I aspire to have the same influence on students that those individuals had on

When working with leaders, peers and subordinates of a gender, color, ethnicity and religion different from myself, I will be successful by working with and helping others and being helped by others. I work with all kinds of people around me in the workforce. Because it is good to meet all different kinds of people to see what they are like and maybe one day I might be one of their friends. Even if I do not like them right now because they are still a stranger to me. But if I at least talk to them and get to know them and after I get to know them a little bit, I might become their friend.

This all made me realize that trying out new experiences is nerve wracking, but it does bring changes in our life and maybe it help us to be the person we are right now. Most of the time is worth trying new experiences when you have friends and family supports. For me, my family and friends have always guided me. That’s the reason this move away from my family is not that bad when we often reunite during breaks and technology like FaceTime had help me to stay connected. In Addition, the little changes do help to learn new lessons of life.
However, Gladwell’s writing has informed me that anyone, if they are prepared to work hard, can reach their goals. Learning Frameworks itself has offered myself and many others a jumping off point for the looming workload of college. I feel more prepared and motivated than ever to excel in my courses. Typically, I hold myself up to the average standard in my classes. I wish to take more initiative in my endeavors, but am somewhat unwilling to put in both the time and attention.
Finally, the role of student has done an extreme amount of molding my self-identity. It exposed me to so many different people, situations and academic concepts. Interactions with fellow students have had a huge impact on the formation of my character. It 's helped me find security in a core group of really good friends, which has bolstered my self esteem and helped me be more confident with who I am as a person. If I wasn 't a student, maybe home schooled, I definitely would not have the friend-making abilities that I do now.
This helped me acknowledge I can be empathic with people in diverse circumstances without being judgemental. I also perceived that I appreciated attempting to help people by provoking their own instincts though solicitous but incisive questioning. I had a tough time with the uncomfortable silences while waiting for a reaction from the coachee, I feel I did not give enough time to the coachee to think about things before I went into other questions. Giving for reflection in the session is portrayed as being vital in coaching by Dembkowski, Eldridge, Hunter (2006, p. 49). “A moment of silence is often helpful for the client to dive into his emotions and think about a specific topic or circumstances.” From what I have practiced this statement is correct but it is very difficult to accomplish this as a new coach.

No one wants to give up on the students. Discuss what you gained professionally from this practicum experience.

I would like to become a part of Wake Tech 's Student Ambassador. Becoming a Student Ambassador will provide me with ample amount of opportunities. These opportunities include, development in leadership skills, meeting and developing relationships with school administrators, resume enhancement, and providing and contributing service to the college and the community.

I was able to increase the benefit of task management but still struggled to maintain the efficiency that comes along with that due to losing a case manager and taking on the entire case load myself. Understanding different perspectives has always come easy to me, however, learning to quite myself when my integrity is challenged because of someone else’s perspective was a definite challenge to me. I felt that the objective of learning what effective leadership can accomplish was the one that was successful. After shadowing Barb, I learned effective communication techniques, how to inspire the staff with vision and drive and how to have integrity in the midst of turmoil. Applying this practicum to becoming a baccalaureate-prepared nurse will come in time.
Service is also important because when we provide any of our time into helping someone or something out it allows us to stay humble and acknowledge what is going on around us. I want to become more involved in services and the honors program will allow me to do so. I am also very well committed to scholarships because with working and school, having financial aid does remove some stress from my life. It also pushes me to work hard to maintain or gain a certain scholarship. The fact that this program can assist anyone in filling out scholarship applications is beyond admirable, because they can get confusing and many need a helping hand in putting down the right
I have always been in pursuit of deep, long-term and meaningful relationships. Utilizing my inner world / energy is the way I connect to people. It involves sharing my thoughts and sincere emotions to certain people, but of course, as a result of it, my network remains limited. Therefore, some types of jobs requiring being active and assertive such as public relations or marketing, are not fitting in my personality. In that manner, my professional choice seems to be appropriate for my style, because I am good at building person-to-person meaningful relationships.
