My strengths in my group are what I personally feel are what i'm best at. One of my strengths is in my group is creative thinking. For me being a creative thinker means that I dont just get the work done I think outside the box to make it creative and beautiful work. For example of a time I was using my creative thinking is in physics on my rube goldberg I used my creative thinking by coming up with cool ideas for making the rube work and making it look cool. Another strength I have is flexibility, I think flexibility means to me is that if you want it to go your way in a group you have to be flexible to have everybody's idea was good so I had to be flexible to make my partner happy and also contribute their ideas too.
My weaknesses are things I struggle with especially in group work but now that i'm going to Animas I am gonna try my best to make it my strength. One of my weaknesses is risk- taker. Risk- taker means that you are not just going easy on yourself but it means that you are open to challenging yourself or doing something you never thought you would do. The other weakness I have is leadership. Leadership means that in group work you are willing to guide the group and have that leadership role for the group to help. The way i'm gonna improve my weaknesses is to challenge myself more to be a risk taker like speaking in front of the class more because i'm shy. Also with the leadership also corresponds with risk taker is to be a risk taker and volunteer myself to be the leader in my group.
What I wish to see happen with this project is for people to get the message we are telling, without actually telling them. I also want to see it succeed in a professional way, but could also can be fun.
At the end of our exhibition I would like my parent to say that it was impactful and think about how they have been socialized and apply a direction for change in their life. Instead of our parents i would like a professor to say that this exhibition was super impactful to their life and to the community.
In our class we are having an exhibition on our project we have been working on called the Socialization project. For almost a month or two we have been learning how society has shaped us and others in today’s world. For our exhibition we created masks to visually show our learning on how we have been socialized or to show what society is. Before we created the end work for our exhibition we spent weeks learning about what society is so we can get a real deep understanding to execute the end goal very well.
