I do agree with this style of thinking which fits my personality because when I make decisions, I always take into consideration how it will affect the people around me I also ensure that am always helping those round me to become better through encouragements and other kinds of motivations. I apply this in both my personal and professional life. Another part to this style of thinking has to do with building personal relationships in a positive manner. I have always found myself to be the go to person for most people especially at work because they will get the help they need from me and I never shy away from a challenge, because of that people trust me enough to lead and help make the better decisions for the team. I see myself as a natural born leader as well as a people person, as I tend to get along with people in all settings because I can adapt to any kind of environment regardless of the situation and have a sense of accomplishing any task I have been given efficiently.
I am the kind of person who likes to rely on facts, and look at a situation to figure out the most realistic solution. When doing work, I like to understand everything very carefully and ask questions as needed to get as many details as possible. My feelings and emotions play a major role in my life. When it comes to decision making, I think about the best for the people around me. I am always willing to help others and share my knowledge, experience, time and energy with anyone who needs it.
One element that brings me joy is my family. I enjoy creating memories with my family. Since most of my family works all of the time, it is always nice to spend time with each other. Another element that brings me joy is my friends. My friends bring out the best in me and allow me a better person.
I am older than a majority of them and they feel comfortable talking to me. I’ve had many conversations about their family, school, or boyfriends and I try to give them the best advice possible. I think that quality is also what is my most helpful behavior in all of the groups. No matter what setting or what role I am in, I am always someone who is willing to be there for others. I know many people know that I am a caring person that is always open to talk.
I highlight my values of honestly and loyalty. I possess the strength of harmony because I dislike conflict; instead I prefer to work toward finding an area of agreement. Also, I am a learner. I love to constantly learn and grow from the knowledge I obtain. The process of learning in itself is extremely satisfying to me.

I feel comfortable and confident talking to others about anything that I have knowledge of. I am forever late.
Interested in the people around me and their feelings, at the utmost I try to be honest and loyal. I value harmony, and whenever it is not there, I create it. Furthermore, I acquire satisfaction from assisting others, which is a quality trait when it comes to tasks that require cooperation (Redmond & Bower, 2015). I also value organization and structure when it comes to my daily activities, and this shows that I have strong organizational capabilities. I tend to be imaginative and creative, and I usually enjoy new challenges as well as variety.
With these three fundamentals in tact, any team is bound to thrive. Majority of the STRIVE activities were heavily reliant on teamwork and cooperation between myself and my peers. Teamwork provides benefits in social interaction, and opening yourself up to new ideas and perspectives. It’s important in the developing process of skills we use everyday like patience, reliability, and flexibility. Essentially, by participating in the STRIVE teamwork activities, I’ve improved skills, like communication, tolerance, and I’ve gained knowledge that I wasn't aware of prior.
