Reflection on my Schooling: From Engineering to Training
Keywords:Reflection, Cultural capital, Technical Education and Training
This paper reflects the journey of my life and highlights the importance of setting goals for desired achievements in life. Additionally, it scrutinizes the role of patronage of parents, societal influence and cultural capital to set the degree of success a person achieves in his or her life.
Through reflection, the paper advocates for inevitability of technical and vocational contents and multi-disciplinary competencies including international languages and life skills from the early age of schooling to tackle with the challenges of 21st century.
