My Self Portrait Examples
In this paper, I will discuss my best-self portrait which indicates my strengths/weaknesses and translate into proactive steps for my future life based on the Reflected Best Self ExerciseTM (RBSETM). At first, I requested twenty potential respondents to share stories of when I was at my best, and collected twenty-five stories from seventeen respondents.

Valuable networks will help me a lot in my future life. However, I sometimes hesitated to dive into new networks and mixers so far. By considering RBSETM analyses, I will participate the New Venture Competition mixer next week and other mixers held at the COVE, collaborate with classmates through classes, competitions, club activities, and private activities before graduation, and keep connections with key people in Panasonic, such as branch managers, in every quarter.
