Shaylin's Career Action Plan

Personal Profile and Influence factors

interests survey

My top interest is information. This is my top interest because I am generally an artistic person. I like writing and painting in my spare time a lot. I enjoy reading all types of books and playing a lot of bored games. I am the type of person who likes to see how things work, I take them apart and try to figure them out and try to put them back together. Doing experiments and figuring them out on my own are good ways that I learn new things. Some careers that fit my interests are photographer, journalist, author, and millwright.

learning styles

I am a visual-kinesthetic learner. I learn better by seeing someone doing something or doing something myself. One way I demonstrate This style is that I draw and doodle a lot in my notes and use images to remember things. Another thing I do that makes me a visual-kinesthetic learner is I learn and remember things more easily if I do it myself or see someone doing it rather than just have someone tell me how to do it. Also, to remember things and to study I re-write my notes out for it to stick in my head. Lastly, I use my hands and a lot of gestures when communicating with people.

multiple intelegences

My first top intelligence is naturalist intelligence. One way I demonstrate this is i love being outdoors and exploring nature. I also keep a rock collection, with rocks from anywhere interesting I've been. My second top intelligence is intrapersonal. One way I demonstrate this intelligence is I am a fairly private person and I enjoy doing things at my own pace by myself. My third top intelligence is visual/spatial. one way I demonstrate this is I am good at understanding colours and shapes within pictures and paintings.


To me success is being happy with what you have accomplished. I think that if yo set a goal you may no always reach it, or you might change your mind. If you are happy and feel good about what you have done then you have been successful. Sometimes the initial goal is unrealistic or plans change and you no longer want that anymore. I measure my success with how happy i am with what I have done. I still do set goals and try my hardest to reach them but if I am satisfied with what I have accomplished then I consider myself successful.

what i'm proud of

A time that i am proud of is when I was in grade 5 i went to a skating night in Brussels. There were tickets for a draw so I bought one. Surprisingly my ticket actually won, I got to go and pick a prize. when I got up to the prize area, I saw an adorable stuffed Webkinz animal so I picked it. Later that night another little boy who had also won in the draw came up to me and asked if we could trade toys because he really wanted to win the toy I had but he got called up after me. I really didn't want to trade toys with him but he really wanted it so I did. I am proud of this because I felt very good about giving the little boy the toy and making him happy. Also I was pretty young and I think for only being 10 I did very mature thing.


Someone who has influenced me a lot is my Mom. Me and my mom have always had a close relationship and I look up to her a lot. She has always been very supportive of me and helped me in any way she possibly can. She is a very kind and amazing woman I hope to be even half as wonderful of a person as she is. My mom has influenced me to be a kinder person and put others before me and take care of my friends and family. She has always been someone I ca go to and I hope to have that type of relationship with my children hen I have them.


My top personal values are adventure and family. One example is that I love to travel and hike and do adventurous things. I've traveled to Spain, Portugal, New Brunswick, Quebec, P.E.I, and many other places. Another example is that I do a lot of things with my family, such as travel to those places with them, we go camping and we are very close. My top work Values are Financial Reward and Personal Relationships. A personal example of this would be that at my job i make it a priority to be friendly with all my co workers so we can have a good relationship. Another example is that I also make it a priority to work hard and earn my money.


Someone who I think is a good leader is Misha Collins. I think he is a good leader because he takes risks and is very inspirational. He also leads a world wide scavenger hunt called Gishwhes, and does a lot of good. He helps charities and hospitals and many other places with his scavenger hunt. Misha Collins also is extremely passionate about what he does and He is confident in his choices. He Focuses on his goal and finds a way to reach it no matter what. I think that all of these things are characteristics of a good leader.
