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.
