SKILLS

Interdisciplinary

The study Liberal Arts & Sciences is based on gaining insight by combining relevant information from a multiple of disciplines.

Liberal Arts & Sciences gives a broad interdisciplinary knowledge that continues through to my focus of child psychiatry

Collaborative

During the first three years of my study I took courses in which it was important to do research in a group setting. These groups differed per course. I found it a nice challenge to work as part of the kitchen staff in a very small kitchen. The meals where presented on time because of good coordination within the small space.

Helpful/ Caring

I am a caring person and am often aware when others need help. I will try to help them if they want and need this.

Patience

I try to fulfill my work within the given time. However I prefer to have time to spare then saving everything until the last minute. Can cope with stressful situations.

Planning

I plan and coordinate activities to make sure that everything fits within the given time. This gives me satisfaction because this gives better results.
