My time at Shamiri as a Thrive! Fellow remains to be an experience worth recalling. The experience was not only amazing but also enabled me to realize that I could actually use the various topics (Values, virtues, gratitude, study skills, and growth) in real-life situations. This in turn has greatly helped me live inharmony with people, while study skills have helped a lot with my academic sector.

From the lessons and skills we taught the various groups, I was able to acquire easier ways of  handling difficulties and challenges. The whole experience also helped me understand the importance of mental fluency as far as life is concerned. Most importantly I got to make new friends who have turned out to be amazing souls since then. In addition, the Shamiri Team were kind, approachable, and considerate and whenever issues arose they would solve them amicably. They ensured we feel/felt at home throughout the whole process.  

Positives from the Experience

  • Everyone was able to freely express themselves.
  • Leading the groups was a leadership shaping experience.
  • We learnt how to initiate  convos and interactions with totally new people
  • Problem-solving ability was a vital consequence

Challenges

  • Difficulty in initiating convos with new people
  • Lack of previous experience which needed adaptation
