How does this plan address my learning style and work habits?

This plan suits my learning skills and work habits perfectly. My diligence and determination will allow me
to overcome the stressful situations this plan can cause. It also allows me to further explore my
leadership and management skills. Due to the amount of things that will be going on, it will also test and
strengthen my already strong organizational skills.

values, and accomplishments?

This plan reflects my personal profile because I am extremely hardworking, and I love learning. Going to
university will help me play towards my strengths because I will get an education and make a career out
of doing the things that I love.

How does this plan reflect on my personal profile in relation to my interpersonal relationships, family
background, and affiliations?

This plan will affect my personal relationships because my life will be centered around school, so I may
become distant from my close friends and family. On the contrary, hopefully I will build new
relationships with the people that I encounter at school and work.
