It is firmly believed that everyone has his dreams and his aims when it
comes to personal and professional life. The reason that I have chosen to study

Personal introduction /Personal and
professional aims.

  

    My name
is Christos Kallivretakis and I come from Crete. I moved in Athens before three
years in order to study in the Mediterranean college. Currently I am studying
to become a mechanical engineer but I intend to continue my studies. As far as
I am concerned I believe that my degree will give me a great variety of choices
as it comes to my professional life. First of all, I will be able to return in
Crete and run my own business. I could, for example, run my own machine-repair
shop or work as a supervisor in a company or in a factory. I could also help in
a factory, for example in the production area.

   
Furthermore this degree will give the chance to travel or to move abroad
and work for big automakers. Also I will be able to meet other people, their
cultures or learn a lot of things, when it comes to my area. I would be really
satisfied if I had the opportunity to visit or to move in Germany or maybe in
Japan and work for a big automaker, in order to learn a lot of things and gain
professional experience. All in all, I feel really grateful for my decision to
move in Athens in order to study and chase my dream.

   
As a result I plan to have my degree and become a mechanical engineer.
Then I plan to join the army and return in Athens to continue my studies in the
T.E.I of Piraeus. Afterwards I plan to move abroad for a while in order to gain
experience when it comes to my career. I don’t know if or when I will return
back in Greece or in Crete but it is certain that I will do it someday, so as
to run my one business and have my own family.

 

 

 

 

Evaluation of strengths and preferences.

 

  
As far as I am concerned, I believe that 
my decision to become a mechanical engineer is based on a natural gift
of mine that had always pushed me to learn a lot about cars, motorcycles and in
general about machines. Furthermore I come from a family of mechanical
engineers. My father, my sister and my brother are also mechanical engineers.
It is certain that this fact has helped me to decide from an early age, the
studies and the professional life that I desire for myself. Nevertheless I was
never forced to follow this career, by my family. It was my own choice. I was
just motivated by them.

   
When it comes to my personality, I can say that I am a responsible,
ambitious and a hard-working person. I always want to learn a lot of things and
I am not afraid to risk in order to succeed. Some of my friends say that I am a
”leader” as they believe that I can influence other peoples’ life. Except for
the books of my college I like to read some other books or articles, in order
to learn more and in order to always improve myself.

   
However, as a lot of people, I have also some weaknesses. Unfortunately
I don’t speak English very well, something that makes me anxious very often,
when it comes to my studies. Nevertheless I am currently studying the english
language in order to improve myself and also because I consider it to be, the
knowledge of the english language, an important tool for international business
and communication. Another weakness of mine is the fact that I sometimes fail
to succeed a good management of time, when it comes to the deadlines of some
projects of my college. As a result I am often anxious and I sometimes fail.

 

 

Skills/Achievements up to now/Behavior audit.

     It is true that thanks to my love for this
area, I have already achieved to work as a mechanical in an authorized
repair-shop of Yamaha and of B.M.W, in Crete. It is true that I have helped a
lot of times my father and my friends, so as to learn new things and gain
experience. Also an uncle of mine has a repair/work-shop in Chania and I used
to help him, every summer for at least five years

    
All in all, I firmly believe that I have already an important experience
and I am proud of this fact. Also I have already two degrees; a degree for
vehicles and a degree for machine tools. Nevertheless I have a lot to learn and
to do in the future and of course my degree( of the Mediterranean college)will
give me the chance to improve myself and to expand my horizons.

  

     
Probably I am a person who has self-esteem and self-control. I can make
up my mind on what I want and I am able to chase my dream. Also the fact that I
have worked as an employee in a big hotel of Crete, has given me the
opportunity to learn a lot about other peoples’ behavior and to be able to
understand myself. In addition the fact that I have managed to improve my
English during the last two years, has given me the courage to continue and to
believe in myself for one more time.

 

Action plan of development/goal (bachelor, thesis
topic/master plans, etc.) General direction.

 

  
 The bachelor of the mechanical
engineer from a college like the Mediterranean is a great opportunity for me,
as I believe that thanks to it I will be able to become an important member of
our society and that I will be able to succeed in my personal and my
professional life. Also this degree will push me to continue my studies in an
area that I consider really interesting. I would like to continue my studies
with a master in the Kingston University with the tittle “Advanced Industrial
and Manufacturing Systems». I will be able to attend this master in the T.E.I
of Piraeus. This master lasts for two years.

    
It is well- known that this master gives to the mechanicals, that work
for big companies or factories and they participate to the center of management
of the decisions, of their company or their factory, the opportunity to develop
and to expand their administrative abilities. Furthermore thanks to this master
mechanicals are able to use perfectly the new technologies so as to improve the
production and to raise the profit of their company.

     
When it comes to the Thesis, that I will have to carry out before the
end of my studies, I would like to study the evolution of the industry and of
the machinery of production. In addition I intend to continue studying the
english language so as to be able to speak English fluently someday and work
for a big company or for an automaker abroad.

 

Reflective
journal

As I see the past now all the hard
work and all the skills I have obtain from my past works as car mechanic and
helper in manufacturing company have helped me to understand that I cannot stay
with knowledge that I have now and try to find all the time new knowledges and
I have to bee all the time in alert because many people will try to take
advantage of you. This I have understand it when I started my studies in
Mediterranean college because they help me understand that I can expand my
knowledge’s and that through knowledge I will be able to fulfil my life’s goals
and be successful business man. Another thing that I have understand and have
been improved by then is that before I started my studies my time management
was very bad I wanted to get personal time all the time and not giving time for
my liabilities after I started studying in Mediterranean college all of this
have changed If I look my program now I see that my week program now have
changed and I have little time for my self now because I have to finish my
liabilities first and then have some time for myself to have fun with friends
etc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

     
To sum up I would like to point out that I am really satisfied, as I
have already managed to succeed some things, when it comes to my dream. I have
already two degrees and I am currently studying to have one more. I plan to
continue my studies with a master that I find really interesting and I have
worked as a mechanical, something that has helped me a lot when it comes to the
experience that I have gained. Also as my family stands always by me, I don’t
have a really bad experience  in terms of
my studies or my professional experience. It is true that great things in life
never come easily. Nevertheless I intend to study and to work as much as I can
in order to chase my dream. However we should never forget to be nice persons,
help and respect other people. I believe that knowledge can help us to improve
ourselves and fulfill our dream. In conclusion, Kofi Annan had said about
Knowledge; ”Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the
premise of progress, in every society, in every family”. As a result
”Knowledge” means everything to me.
