My values

One important value is adaptability. I maintain flexibility in completing tasks. Being open to change and improvements allows me to complete work assignments in a more efficient manner while offering additional benefits to my supervisors, co-workers and clients.

This is because overseas projects contain more challenges than local projects. In order to successfully lead an overseas project, I must first be well equipped to face the challenges that both local and overseas projects have in common by organizing a local project. These challenges include liaising with the organization we are serving, managing a team during a project effectively and serving our target group to the best of my ability. Local projects allows me to take on challenges and to hone my leadership skill in a more controlled environment. Should I face any challenges that I am unable to overcome, I can rely on the school’s centre for social responsibility for guidance as I am still in the country and will be able to contact them at any time. This will not be possible should I lead an overseas project without any prior experience as I will not be able to contact the school if I am
