List your special talents…
What are you good at? What have you accomplished that you are proud of?
  • Interview someone who knows you well (a friend or relative) and ask him/her to summarize what he/she perceives as your special talents.
  • In teams of two, interview each other. Assume that you are a very well-known and interesting personality. Although that part is fictional, you must respond to the interview questions based on your actual life. The interviewer must write an article for Person magazine featuring you as the cover story. To prepare for the interview, you must reflect on what you have accomplished in your life and prepare to tell the interviewer about those accomplishments.
  • Compile a portfolio of your accomplishments. Include samples of school and/or work projects, activities and awards
