TAKING THE LEAD
To initialise the process of turning our classroom into a magazine company, we decided to divide roles between the students, and immediately I looked down to the role with least responsibility. I wanted to lay back in my comfort zone and do what I always do, however I recalled a famous saying by Albert Einstein:
If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.
I thought of this and said to myself: What if I change? What if I take a risk? What if I take a leap forward and use this opportunity to grow as a student, a learner and a person?
After sleeping on it, I had finally decided on a idea that was even greater than what it seemed. I decided to take a leadership role focusing on the layout for the magazine. But what did this really mean for me? Well it is in fact my first real leadership role, and I am sure to encounter some bumps in the road, however I trust this experience will help me develop in the areas I need improvement, and serve as a great opportunity to expand my comfort zone.

I really like your blogpost, but I think that you could have expanded more on this idea. It seems like the start of something bigger and I really want to know the whole picture. I liked the quote you used but I'm not sure if you really needed it. Its very well written and I liked the emphasis you created with the different colors and font sizes.

Frances! I really enjoyed reading your blog post. I felt it was very visually attractive and I am glad you took the risk because you have been a great leader in the design aspect. However, I believe you could have developed this idea a little more, spent more time on it. It seems as if you did not expand it as much as you should nor spent the time on it that this entry needs. I really enjoyed the images and format.
