1) Introductory Paragraph:
My name is Vidyansh Sharda, but most people call me Vid. Last year my objective in completing the portfolio was to reflect on my second year of high school. This time, its different. Now I want to evaluate on my improvements from the previous year. I hope to see some improvement on my grades, character, personality and life as I come close to ending off grade 10. The following presentation will guide you through my year and help you get an overall look at what I have accomplished and done as the year progressed. As the year progressed I have improved in many aspects, many of while you will see in this presentation.
5) Career Planning
One of the careers I aspire to pursue is of a Market Research Analyst. This is one of the careers that became an interest to me due to my marketing cluster in DECA. During the training in DECA, I learned it was a very vast field and also quite interesting. It is said you will succeed in the field you enjoy. I enjoyed learning marketing so much that I received a 98% at DECA provincials. This made me realize if I made this my job, I would succeed in that too.
This is a field I have looked forward to accomplishing since I was a child. It was a part of my portfolio last year and it is something i continue to enjoy more and more as I grow older. I have loved and exceeded at science since I was a kid and I continue to do so. This opens me up to a world of scientific careers. This one is very appealing to be not only because of my scientific curiosity but also because of the vastness. The fact that we get caught up in the limited world we know and completely ignore how vast everything really is. We get so worried and stressed by our lives, but oddly its comforting to know how small we and our problems really are in the grand scale of things. As you can see, I am very passionate about this career.
8) Co-curricular activities:
I am a part of DECA as I mentioned earlier. This was my first year in DECA and my category was Marketing Team Decision Making. I did this with a partner and we placed top 10 in out first year at provincials which, as we have been told, is exceptional. We plan to continue this throughout high school and keep working on it.
