During the October module in the Agents for Change program, our focus has been on self awareness. Through reflective learning, students explored individual strengths, personal challenges and core values that make each of us unique. We discussed why maintaining good character and a growth mindset helps us to become more confident, resilient and stronger individuals, especially when we approach new challenges using positive thinking strategies. We learned that processing our emotions using mindfulness exercises and effective coping strategies enables us to feel better about ourselves and can push us through difficult times. We believe that having an accurate view on how we think, what we feel and how to effectively share our thoughts with others is a critical step to becoming successful social thinkers and engaged community members.
Next module, we will work on self-management techniques and social communication strategies when faced with increased responsibilities and personal barriers.
