What are your transferable skills ? My transferable skills include problem solving, communication skills, motivation( myself and others), and leadership skills- being self motivated and being able to get others involved without being embarrassed. I also think of myself of being a team player.
What is your career focus (Are you naturally drawn to a specific career? Some careers that interest you and why?) When I graduate high school I plan on getting a four bachelor degree in Physical Sciences, from there I will continue four years to become an occupational therapist, specializing in paediatric occupational therapy. I believe that I found my calling to this last year when my parents were in the hospital at U of A. I was walking down the hallway to dad’s room and there was a little girl tied into a stroller with a cast on each of her legs. She was crying saying how much it hurt, I could feel her pain. From this moment I had a feeling that I needed to work with children and assisting them to get them back on track to becoming a healthy human being.

Answer the following questions to support the collage you created.
What do you like about your collage?– It represents the way I live. It includes pictures that I have taken over the past year.
What do you not like about your collage? I do not like how it does not include any videos. My life would be represented much more accurately with a couple of videos, maybe a dance video, me playing guitar/ singing, a video of my laugh or a crazy video of me and my friends.
What sections do you want feedback on? If my collage represents how you see me, or if it only represents how I see myself.
What values are represented in your collage? My values of adventure, laughing, hanging out with friends/ family and experiencing new things.
What bias is represented in your collage? A bias that having a fun time is better than working.

What did you learn from the other person? Janyl: I learnt that she LOVES pineapple, and that she wants to have a family in the future. From the collage it seems as though she wants one child. Shae:
Where you comfortable sharing you work? Why or Why no? Janyl: Yes, I was comfortable sharing my work with others. I chose images that represented my life on a day to day basis. Every image was real, and was one that I had taken. If I was not comfortable sharing an image, I did not include it within the photo collection. Shae:
