My name is Jickson Lim, and I am writing to introduce myself to you as a student in your Effective Communication class. Having graduated from Temasek Polytechnic with a diploma in green building & sustainability, I had done internship at fire command centre. I decided to further my studies in Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land) at SIT.
I am interested in a career related to land engineering. I am able to communicate with a small group of friends when doing project. Back in poly days, I had informed my groupmates their roles in the project. Discussing about installing of energy-efficient lighting will help save energy and costs. Telling my groupmates to surf the internet and find the most energy-efficient lighting.
In terms of weaknesses, I am quite afraid speaking in a public. I tend to get nervous when I speak in the stage, couldn’t express well in the presentation. Might feel a shame of what I share in the presentation. When I get nervous, I might forget what I want to say in the presentation. I scared the audience will laugh at me when I present something wrongly. I am also a bit shy to speak and doing hand movement in the presentation.
My goal is to learn more communication skills in small group dialogue and group presentation, such as giving out information more specifically. I will make sure my audience understand what I am saying. I also hope to gain confident in group presentation. I will practice my presentation before hand.
