Recognize Perspectives:
I grew in expressing my personal
perspectives on this situation, which
i was unable to do before this
because i was more timid about my
disorder
I explained how perspective influences
human interactions, affecting their
understanding of situations involving
someone with this disorder.

Take action:
I identified collaborators across
disciplines and industries and
created opportunities for individual
or collaborative actions to improve a
situation, event, or issue. because i
brought to light other methods of
treatment that are not as much
talked about

Reflection:
Most interesting thing
How did this impact my view on social anxiety and
shyness?
How do I see myself as a learner/person after this
project?
How has it affected my plans for the future?
What am I most proud of?
