Attending UMKC's culture night was one way of reaching out to the community on a multicultural level. Going above and beyond the SISA class room to find a broader perspective is just one way I have found to excel in culture.
My cultural experiences also stem from my ability to try new things. This is corn ice cream I had while in Beijing China.
Over the past year I have read many books on multiple countries and cultures.
Watching foreign films has given me an understanding of different accents and sentence structures. There is also a grasp of cultural norms and differences that can be obtained.
Mango languages that SISA provided me was an excellent tool for languages. It provided the broadest selection of languages to learn from.
My job at Diversity Language Daycare teaching Chinese to kids ages 4-6 was proof to me that my hard work and detection to learning languages pays off.
Mindsnacks is one of many language apps that I downloaded on my phone to further my language skills. Mindsnacks Mandarin provided fun games that even kids could play to help them learn.
Our groups work with ITGS and my own individual project have definitely brought a whole new understanding of the technology to me. Business is reliant on technology.
Learning how to use iMovie is one thing I value most about the technological side of SISA. Editing and voice overs are two easy and effective tools to add a professional appearance to a presentation.
The Chalk Walk was a great experience for my team. We all worked together to construct a recreation of a famous Greek work of art.
Brainstorming for new opportunities or creative twists on presentations was another way our team became closer.
Meeting with my team after school hours shows our commitment to quality work. Panera sessions are key to finishing close deadlines.
SWOTs after presentations were a great way for our team to collaborate on every aspect of our work together.
Our session with Todd Long provided us with examples to professional approaches to working with others and collaboration techniques.
Mr. Cook told us at the beginning of the year that in order to be the part you have to look the part. Dressing professionally was a fun and easy way to show others your ability to be a professional.
