Looking back on my semester, and my Global Mindset Inventory Assessment I can say based off of the parameters I set for myself, I could have been a lot better about ensuring that I achieve my goals and objectives. However, I think that by acknowledging the areas where I was the weakest/lacked the certain skillset needed, allowed for me to still have some personal growth in these areas. In my Assessment Plan, I had chosen to work on my Cosmopolitan Outlook (2.71), Interpersonal Empathy (2.83) and Global Business Savvy skills (1.38).

I was able to consistently commit to volunteering with CCSJ throughout most of the semester, although I failed at keeping that up in the last few weeks. However, if I evaluate myself according to my goal for taking on more leadership roles, I would say that I was decently successful in this dimension. I base my success on the fact that I not only was able to volunteer to lead an entire two and half hour class in discussion on the assigned readings, but I also became a Board Member for the BSA Fashion Show, which was not a club I had previously been affiliated with prior to this course. I had been looking for opportunities to grow as a leader and I had welcomed the challenge as I knew it would push
