5. How did you work collaboratively with others?
I worked collaboratively with others through the GGCs (Global Goals Club) Kids4Kids and Mother’s Choice. As the co-president of Mother’s Choice, I have to work with the other president of Mother’s Choice, the main organization, as well as the general members and the presidential advisor in order to put together and organize campaigns such as the toys/ clothes drive and the empathy belly project. We worked collaboratively on projects such as these through meeting up weekly on Tuesdays at school, going to monthly inter-school YLC (Mother’s Choice Youth Leadership Council) meetings, and keeping in regular contact with the main organization through text and email. I am also a general member of Kids4Kids, in which I help design lesson plans with other general members during weekly meetings, and implement them during weekly volunteer sessions. Prior to the actual volunteer sessions, we worked collaboratively by dividing tasks such as collecting craft materials, books and creating the lesson plan, and during the session, we divided up the kids and worked together to read and teach them English.
7. How did you consider the ethical implications of your actions?
I considered the ethical implications of my actions through the analysis of the impact of my actions. Ethical implications for Mother’s Choice include approaching the issue with sensitivity and responsibility in regards to discretion and confidentiality. Having been part of Mother’s Choice (not just as a member of the club but also as a volunteer at Mother’s Choice events beyond school), ethical implications could include funding the wellbeing of physically/ mentally impaired children, helping to provide and collect resources for new mothers, and overall raising awareness of teenage pregnancy and its overall physical and psychological struggles, thus the general increased appreciation of mothers.
