LEARNING OUTCOMES: 2 and 3
Being completely honest I've always believed to be one who gives back to the community, and for the past year or so, my level of commitment towards this belief has been decreasing. That's why, after the club that I had dedicated three years of my school life supporting (Project Peru) got shut down, I decided to join a club that I've always wanted to be a part of, "Wish Factory".
"Wish Factory" is a club that began in 2014 with the goal of helping young cancer patients in the Rebagliati Hospital. During these visits, the club members do all sorts of activities alongside these kids to make their cancer treatment a less painful one. So far I've only attended two visits due that regular members are only allowed to go once a month but I'm looking forward to my next visits.
I believe that this CAS experience illustrates the second outcome (Demonstrate that challenges undertaken developing new skills in the process.) due that when I attend these visits I constantly have to be learning to restrict myself with what I say and also be as entertaining as possible, this is a challenge to me due that I consider myself as someone that doesn't restrict himself therefore using this activity to put a filter on what I say because I don't want to say anything that will make the kids uncomfortable. Another learning outcome that this experiance illustrates is showing commitment and perseverance in a CAS experiance (4), this activity would be considered this outcome due that I constantly have to attend meetings and visits.
