- Lee'S Summit US-MO
I enjoy other cultures and seeing how they are different from my own. I love trying new things and being active. I love playing soccer, I have played soccer ever since I was 4 years old. Playing soccer has taught me dedication, perseverance and even leadership. Soccer takes dedication and perseverance because there are teams that are simply better then you, and you have to keep playing just because you owe it to yourself to finish the game. Soccer has taught me leadership, when there are younger kids on your team like when I played for high school, you have to step up and be an example of something that they want to be like. If you try hard, many times they try just as hard but you have to show qualities that are important enough to be followed.
I want to go to Maple Woods, obtain associates degree in Psychology and earn a certificate in International Studies then transfer to a 4 year college and further those studies in hopes to get a career right out of college with little debt and be successful in Psychology and travel the world with my practices.
The link below shows the video that my team and I filmed and I edited to present to students over in a high school language class in Mexico. Their class was preparing to take a trip to Lee's Summit and wanted to see the town before they arrived. https://docs.google.com/a/teamsisa.org/file/d/0B-jF45BjuAaFODJjMjlhZWYtYTlhMi00OWM0LTlhYTItNjcxYTM2MDU5ZTZm/edit
Due to difficulties uploading the video to the computer, I had to take a picture of the file. This was a video that I edited for my teams project on Proxemics. We made up the questions, filmed our interview and edited the film so that we could present to the class.
This is a document of interview questions that I had to come up with so that I could interview the other MOTs to see if I wanted them on my team. My interview questions were based on their personalities and how they handle adversities.
Before Mr. Cook chose the three team leads he wanted us to lead a discussion on an article or an excerpt from a book. This was my outline for the discussion that I had to lead.
I was the contact for the John Knox presentation. It was very frustrating at times because my contact was not very good at communicating but I kept up my end of communication.

This is a proposal for Dr. Eckert-Stewart by myself before we had out individual teams. It was the basics on Romania.
I went to an Indian restaurant called the Taj Mahal. I tried spicy duck, naan, gulab Jamun and chi tea. It was a little different but I liked it.
My team and I drove down to downtown Kansas City and ate at a place called Zaina's. We tried tomato soup, chicken gyros and baklava. It turns out that I really love greek food. I've been there many times since.
This is a document that my team and I made for all of the research we did on generational difference. My team and I had to know pretty much everything on the different generations to present to the clients at John Knox.
This is a document on the case study we did on American Values. It is important to know your own culture before you can really understand and appreciate other cultures.
This is a photo of some of my progress on Mango Languages. I attempted Hindi because I am going to India in the summer but it was way to hard for me so I started working on French.
