When it comes to discussing the efficiency of the university educational program, I find myself stuck in between. It's not all good and it's not all bad; personally I think my education is not only preparing me to pass my tests, but lately I have realized that it's helping me in discovering who I am and what I want in life. In the previous years, I was kind of lost because all I did was studying for my tests so I can past and that is it; but this year I've been exposed to so many great ideas and new dimensions of what I can learn and do. I'll give you an example, I was given an assignment in which I'm supposed to present what is identity, that is something you won't be able to find in a book or an article; identity is not something you can touch or see or measure, it differs depending on personal perspective, cultural background, and so many other elements; so building my own definition of what is identity will not only help me, but it will also help people and maybe teach them on how to answer the questions of who they are, what can they accomplish, and learn how to be proud of who they are, because confidence is a major factor when it comes to leadership.
Also in Psychology class, we're not only learning how to be teachers or how to understand the student's psychology, but also we are learning on how to read people's behaviors and act upon that, to choose the right method to deal with certain people; and that I believe is something we all need in order to be influential leaders in the future, because how can you convince someone to follow you if you don't know how to deliver your message correctly. I'm proud to say that in the past few years I thought that I was going to gain nothing except a diploma from my University education, but now , I know that what I'm studying and preparing and filling my mind with, is going to make me an influential person one day, as long as I speak up and try to help people so we can all lead our community to a better future, I have the tools and it's up to me to know how to use them.
