What do I think commitment to care means to me?
Commitment to care for me is doing something that is not for your benefit. Doing something that even if you don’t want to do it, you do it because you care. Sometimes people say that doing something that only benefits one person has no value at all. However, I severely disagree with this because I think that what’s important is you trying to do something to help not the outcome. I think this unit is very important because it helps teenagers to really think about others more than themselves. It shows them that doing one thing can help other more than you think.
Of the three focus topics which am I most interested in and why? What questions do I have about these topics? How do they relate to me?
I am most interested in the international women’s day because that is what I feel most connected to. As a girl, I can relate to the problems that women face and I really enjoy helping some people to acknowledge the inequalities that are still present in today’s society. I love learning about these problems and understanding some of the hidden inequalities that I don’t take into account. I’m really interested in how Singapore relates to the problem of gender inequality as I believe it is a very hidden and secret topic here.
