I have learnt to listen better from this subject. Why people use certain words, which words people put emphasis on when speaking. All the small details speak more than just the words themselves. Listening to the guest speakers also gave me an insight on what the work environment was like outside. I think I have become more confident in my ability as well after seeing the alumni on a more relatable level. They have gone through the same thing as me so I know I won’t be alone when I am coming across similar challenges. I think hearing about the values of the different speakers including Maria, helped me clear up what I value in a professional setting, the talks have helped me understand myself better.
