      family history, heritage, peer groups).” – Explain how your work reflects this “I” statement
    2. Creative Thinking- “I have deliberate strategies for quieting my conscious mind (e.g., walking away for a while, doing
      something relaxing, being deliberately playful) so that I can be more creative.” OR “I can persevere  to develop my ideas. I expect ambiguity, failure, and setbacks,
      and use them to advance my thinking.” –Choose one “I” statement to respond
    3. Communication: “I present information clearly and in an organized way.” OR
      I can present information and ideas to an audience I may or may not know“-
