Welcome again. I handed my EE in do you want to know how I feel about it now? Read this!!!!
There were several highs and lows throughout my research process. To mention a few: it was an advantage that I had learned most of the business contents required to answer my research question, it was also great that the organization was ready to share their details and financial information. However, there was a point where I realized my report was more descriptive than analytical which meant I didn’t have enough secondary data to back up the primary collected. Hence if I was to do the research again I would spend more time conducting secondary research for deeper analysis. There are also some unanswered questions which if I had more time I would love to do more research on. Like how to precisely measure prices of forestry products as they have seasonal fluctuation.
Moreover, I have learned a lot through this process mostly in terms of conducting research without deviating from the central topic which will be a great skill to carry on to university. I have also built more confidence and connections with inspiring people through this process.

So far, My research has been successful to some extent beside the fact that I need to conduct more secondary research in order to be able to give more detailed analysis rather than description; which is what I am currently working on. My strategy did not change by huge percent though I did change some of the analytical tools that I planned to use in the beginning. One big take away that I have from the research I have done so far is confidence which I found it was one of the important skills that helped me to get different pieces of information from different stakeholders of SACCOS. I got the chance to explore in depth in the Business Contents that I am using to for my research . I also developed a deeper understanding of Profitability throughout my research so far.
Thanks for hanging around again to pay attention to different stories of my learning journey….. Today I would like to mention quite a few things that I have learned and enjoyed by being a part of the Boarding Catering Committee. We have been responsible for all the celebrations that are a part of how we appreciate the diversity and variety of people that we have in our community. Personally, I feel I have learned how to step out of my comfort zone and how to participate in different events that are based on appreciating other’s cultures that are not necessarily my own beliefs which is something that I never practiced in places that I have lived at before. I have done this through planning and helping out in setting up decorations and other logistical stuff together with creating posters at some points; in different events like Christmas, Chinese New Year, Deepavali and currently we have just planned for Hari Raya Eid il Fitri. These events have helped me a lot in learning other people’s cultures and opportunities to learn what they mean and why is it valuable to them as well. Moreover, I have been able to practice my creative skills at different points.
Welcome to my pre-post about project week, there is a lot to share…I am sorry that there will be a lot of writings here please bear with me. Starting with our planning as I said in the previous video it wasn’t that easy but cooperation and collaboration was a great strategy for reaching the success and memories that I will be reflecting in this post First of all perseverance was one of the strategies /characteristics that made us as a group successful. To mention a few; the second day of our hiking was a really difficult day as it was raining and going down the steep hill wasn’t that easy. But by encouraging each other and activating we did it at last and we were proud of choosing to step out of our comfort zone and actually facing the different challenges. In addition to that, I also feel that the collaboration skills that we had made a huge difference in every single activity that we did. There were different changes that we had to make during the week, which would really be crucial and might have gone wrong if we weren’t cooperative enough in reaching the proper decision. There were also other emergencies that happened; like I got an allergic reaction all over sudden that I had never really experienced before, which was quite shocking but through the assistance of other members of our group in communicating with ISOS I could make it through. There were also differences in cultures between members of our group but we tried to work well in understanding each other and coping up with everything. Above all Project, Week has been an amazing experience where we got the chance to go and explore the world and immerse ourselves in different new cultures which have made me feel more matured and I have opened my eyes and mind more and more.
Thanks for paying attention to my post! Here are some amazing photos.
Thanks again for being around to see a short description of how my learning carries on.This may not be necessarily reflecting on a specific time here at school but it’s an achievement that has come through proper planning and engagement throughout all energy I have been giving while having a dancing session with the disabled members of the local community from Tampines Minds.
This happened during the previous weekend when I was walking around Tampines Mall with one of my friends and we happened to sit down in one restaurant to eat.While we were waiting for our food I saw one of the clients sitting with his relative or guardian if I am not mistaken.And in my mind, I thought there was no need of going by to say hello thinking that he might not be able to remember who I am.Surprisingly, after they finished eating before leaving he came by to the table that my friend and I were seating and he said Hello to me and also he tried to give signs to the guardian that we normally dance with them at our school.
What made me find a deep meaning in this is that I realized finally we just don’t give them only one-time happiness through dancing with them for 30-40 min but it carries on as they share with anybody around them in specific ways. This has been a great motivation to me especially at the times that I doubted whether what we are giving them is helpful or not and this was a result of perseverance and trying my best to find the meaning in it instead of giving up.Moreover, this gave a big picture how I can get involved in a local community anywhere around the world without necessarily being near my home place or in my country.
I have also attached some photos that we happened to have during dancing sessions.
