Expectations Setting for My NYAA Gold Journey

  • Overall Expectation for My NYAA Gold Journey:

Is to develop as an individual. Understanding that development is not something that can happen overnight, its a progression. To not only give my words but my actions as well. To fully realise that I am given the platforms and opportunities to do so much, and I should not waste these platforms given to me but share them with others as well.

  • Sevice Learning
    What are my personal expectations for Service Learning?

To serve in a manner whereby I am able to behave professionally, assist and at the same time providing the platform and opportunities for participants from various groups to learn and most importantly have fun.

How am I going to achieve the expectation that I have set for myself?

Taking part in more subsidized programs provided by Camp Challenge as well as taking the initiative to outsource for volunteery works that are available here in Singapore and being a part of it.

  • Healthy Living

What is healthy living about? As stated, it aims to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle that allows us to get through our daily activities.

Why is it so important?

It is to help us maintain an overall wellness. In a stressful working and living environment where everything is so fast paced and there is hardly time for a breather, it is important to maintain overall wellness of not only the body but the mind as well.

Now the question would be, how am I going to go about doing it?

Creating a schedule for myself is possible, however I do not believe that, that is something that should be forced upon. Going along with my own pace in doing recreational activities such as kayaking or even climbing whilst still clocking in the hours would be the most ideal situation for me.

  • Community Leadership Initiative

Expectations set for myself?

Understand about the various groups in Singapore, and providing them with the means to be able to participate in programs.

Why is Community Leadership Initiative important?

It is a stepping stone for all of us. We are so caught up in our own lives that we do not realise certain groups of people in our community do not have the same or equal opportunities to be involved and take parts in programs.

How am I going to go about doing it?

  1. Finding the beneficiaries that I would like to work with
  2. Having a set of objectives for the program
  3. Planning and Execuation of the program
  4. Post Program – Having a desired learning outcome and impact
