France J-Term Practicum
Throughout the Team France program, some experiences and encounters really resonated with me both personally and professionally and it seamlessly coincided with the educational training that I have had thus far in my International Education Management program here at MIIS. I feel that since my return to California, I have gained a clearer picture of what is important to me and how I want to incorporate those things into my life. I recognize that the practice of reflection will continue to center me and allow me to set those goals for both my professional and personal future. In addition, I feel as though I became more in touch with who I am and how my identity has been shaped throughout my life. As a professional goal, I realized that I want to be in student-facing position because in such a dynamic environment I know that I will change, evolve, and improve with each person that I come in contact with. As a personal goal, I want to continue improving my language abilities to both excel professionally and foster my interest personally. In summary, I feel very fortunate to have gained this more profound understanding of myself and my career, and it is all thanks to my experience with Team France.
