Self-evaluation

As a postgraduate student at Sheffield Hallam University majoring in International business management, this semester is important because we are laying the foundation in a lot of subjects and forming study habits. At the beginning of this semester, I read The Independent almost every week, which also enables me to get more business news as well. And I plan to be a manager in the future, I know it is not easy to achieve that goal, it needs to learn a lot and experience many things, it need lots of time and need a hard working me.

With the help, it gets better and helps me build a good relationship with my classmate. Furthermore, when I need to working in groups, I always love to set objectives and schedules for our group, and I explain the thing prefer gut feeling rather than logic, and discover the method to support my thinking after I have showed my opinion.

Thus, I think I should be more volunteered to join the social activities because I am happy to make the new friends. With the personal attributes, I think the good things for my future are I am not afraid to ask questions and enthusiastic with my career; the negative things are careless of others and a little bit lazy, do badly in the presenting...
