Deciding my CAS

Now that we have to submit our choices of activities for this season, I am wondering about what I should take for each aspect of the CAS programme. I have had a few ideas but I think by analysing my skills and strengths, passions and my goals I can come a step closer to choosing my activities.

My skills and strengths are that I am a communicative person and I like to see certain issues from different perspectives to reach a solution. I am open-minded because if an argument is justified, I accept it and consider it before I present my own perspective. I also like to apply the concepts I learn in school beyond the classroom and apply my knowledge in real-life situations. One skill that really helps me is that I don’t hold on to my mistakes and I learn from them instead.

I am passionate about sciences, specifically physics and chemistry. I like to apply what I learn in the real world and I like to see the scientific concepts in action. I want to help the world in some way through what I learn. Some world issues that I want to see abolished are Global Warming and lack of education for the underprivileged and I hope to help take a step towards solving these issues through what I do in the future. In my spare time I like to play the guitar, do some exercise, watch tv and movies and hang out with my friends. I hope to incorporate the first two hobbies into my CAS.

I want to help people through what I do and have a positive influence on the people around me. As a person I want to be a communicative person that people can trust and depend on where it counts. I think that I still have to increase my social skills and I want to have a more cheerful aura. I want to learn how things work and how I can make them more efficient so that more people are satisfied and the technologies become more eco-friendly. I also want to know how I can help people around the world in whichever way I can.

I have a few activities that I currently like such as MUN because we debate on current issues and collaborate to make a resolution that can help the world. I want to continue playing the guitar and jogging and I hope to improve in both these fields. I am also interested in the “Music therapy with Apex” service because I will be helping people through playing the guitar. The STEM club will help me learn about what is happening around the world in terms of science and technology. I hope that I develop and become a much better person in every way through the CAS experience.

    What makes you feel that you need to improve your social skills? Do you have ideas on how you can get around to doing that?

      Thanks for your response! I think often I find that I’m not able to fully convey what I am feeling and it takes me time and effort to tell people what’s exactly going on in my mind. I aim to improve this firstly through MUN, which has already helped me improve my confidence and speaking skills as a whole within the course of a year. I also aim to be a bit more communicative and openminded during classes, breaks and during the activities that I opted for.

    Is there any way that you can use your passions for the sciences in CAS? What skills do you want to improve on during the CAS experience?

      I have already chosen activities that I am interested in, such as STEM club. I also think that I can contribute to the Green umbrella GC with my skills in science. I hope that through my CAS experience I develop a more caring attitude towards people, especially through the Service aspect of CAS. I also want to improve my physical fitness and I think CAS can help me with that.
