LE Reflection – voice to be heard

Voice to be heard. Let me tell you two stories.

One is when I was interned in PwC and recerived a valunteer recrutment information, to give consultancy to NGOs. I went to the interview, it was a group interview. There were also 3 in my team are from PwC and they have worked more than 2 years and in fianance and asset management sectors, but at that time I was a junior university student. We began to interview and none of them want to lead, so I lead and I got the offer then. I still remember at the feedback session, the interviewers said that why dont you use your expertise to one of my group. I dont understand why they dont want to speak out.

Another one is when teacher ask who want to lead this week, i never raise my hand. I dont know what happend to me. Maybe its because language so I felt i am not supported. In some group work, I notice me or some classmates their voice has been ignored. We may make better results if we listen. But does the world have time to listen? maybe its because language, maybe its because their are conservative personality, or something else.

I felt bad and fortunate. I feel bad because I was excellent and always want to express my idea, but I cannot find the old me. but also I feel fortunate because I have a chance to experience this feeling, so I think, most time in future, I will willing to listen to others, respect them and encourage them to speak out and help whoever need it.
