                         The power of soft skills

                          張弛/高二13 

                        Today, the bachelor from Harvard University, Miss Nancy Xie came to our school and gave us a speech about the soft skills which we need to develop and improve if we want to enter a great university.

                        At the beginning, Nancy introduced herself to us about her students period and her working experience. Then, after sharing these experiences she started to mention how she could get into Harvard, well, which did strongly catch our attention. She asked us what we think the most important abilities we need to have as we want to apply for a better college. After answered by three students who showed different ideas, Nancy gave us a conclusion: leadership, the ability to collaborate with others, self-confidence, kindness and determination. She pointed out that the score is not the only judgment of whether you can enter a great school, but SOFT SKILLS are also important. For example, whether you can be a good leader or not, or a warm-hearted person who usually joins the volunteer work or even just be an active person who likes joining the social activity.

                        Moreover, Nancy emphasized that the three most important things we need to have are independence, our outstanding personality and our ability in contributing to others or even to the society. The outstanding person, well, she stated that, is a kind of globalize personality. That means we need to learn more about everything happening in all over the world , which would help us to broaden our horizons. Then, we need to do more contribution to the school we want to attend. In the foreign country, their traditional moral is to contribute others or the organization which they want to enter. This means we need to show our quality of how we can contribute our dream school and then we might have more chances to be accepted.

                        Whats more, she also mentioned that the differences between us and the foreign students also make us have less competitive power as we want to apply for the school like Yale or Harford. First, we didnt trust in any religions, which may make us lose the passion of developing ourselves in charity, which also shows us that we are not interested in social works. Another serious problem is that we are lack of leadership. All these make us easy to be replaced by others or even robots in the future. This alarms us that we need to develop more outstanding personality in order to be different and not being replaced.

                        Miss Xie pointed out that our personality is based on the activity we attend and the major we have chosen. As she said, most of the clubs we chose to attend have less creativity. Like attending the Students Union, the model-United nation which have been already set up are not able to inspire our imagination. By contrast, the activity like hock race, robot competition are both able to make us more creative.

                        Above all, Nancy strongly suggested that our personality is the key point of our competition power. Weve learnt from this speech that we need to be more independent, creative and etc. Those qualities are the soft skills we have and would deeply affect our whole life.

                        軟實力在大學申請中的重要性

                        來自美國的哈佛大學畢業生給我們講述了“軟實力”的重要性。我想,“軟實力soft skill”應該是一個與“硬實力hard skill”——即知識文化水平不同但相輔相成的東西。

                        據講師介紹,大學考官最看重的是學生的獨立性、個人特點和是否可以為學校帶來貢獻。

                        獨立性是每一個人必有的品質,這并不是說不接受外人幫助或是追求異于他人,而是指在生活上、思想上的獨立性。近乎所有高中都是要求住宿的,這就是為了培養學生在生活上的獨立。人總是會長大的,需要離開父母獨自生活,所以,我們得從小適應這種變化,做到獨立生活,把自己的生活過得有條有理。接著是思想上的獨立。每個人都會有自己的思想,但有些人會因他人的觀點話語而困惑于是否要改變自己的想法。我覺得,思想是自己的,不必要去遵循他人的意見。在社會上,思想上的獨立也很重要。

                        個人特點是很不具體的,到底什么個人特點會被大學考官視為珍寶呢?有以下幾個方面:領導能力、社會交往能力、創造力。許多大學都會看重領導能力,因為領導能力強的人可能更加活躍,思維開放與他人相處得好。我們每個人都會面臨的就是找工作,這就十分需要社會交往能力與他人相處得好,對一些困難,一些人與人之間關系的磨合處理妥當就更需要這一點了。

                        最后一點是否能為學校做出貢獻似乎不那么重要,但是這能反映出一個人的奉獻心,感恩之心。不管是否能做大事業,取得舉世聞名的成就,我們總該從生活上的一點一滴中去回饋母校,回報社會。小到孝敬父母,大到公益慈善,都是感恩的表現。

                        然而,許多學生仍然做不到有個人特質,缺乏主動性和領導力。要培養這些能力,就要從生活的每一件小事做起。比如說,參加一些社會活動,培養自身的社交能力,當一當志愿者,打暑假工,這些社會活動都能成為培養自身能力的機會。在課堂上主動發表觀點,不被動接受觀點也是一個好方法。

                        所以,做好生活中每一件小事,上一所好大學,培養社交本領其實沒那么難。

                        今天這個講座,感覺自己了解到:

                        弱化標準化考試的重要性

                        當然,這里所指的弱化并非說你個人成績很差,也能上國外的名校,本身自己的成績過硬也是出國留學、讀名校的基本條件,但當你和另外一個申請者成績相差不大時,人家憑什么選你呢?是因為你這個人,他們更看重的是你這個人的品質、才能、潛在性等各方面,總的來說,他們看重的是你這個人本身,而不是成績本身。就拿品質來說,哈佛對一個學生的評價,是基于他的舍友,他的老師,他的同學,從這可以看出哈佛十分注重你與周圍人的關系,他們想知道的是在別人眼中,你這個人是怎樣的。

                        為他人做貢獻

                        他們經常會問你:What can you bring to us?”你能帶來給我們什么呢?這就要求你在個人能力甚至是思維上有所提升,他們希望你這個人具有冒險精神,具有創意,所以他們想你”think outside the box”,他們同時也希望這個人能對一件事情保持充沛的熱情和決心,總而言之,這里是一個能讓我們成為更好的自己的一個平臺。

                        學生的主動性

                        現在中國留學生的情況總括來說有4點,第一點是無文化信仰,第二點是缺乏主動性,第三點是缺乏領導力,第四點是極易被替代的特質。而外國名??粗氐莫毩⑿?、主動性正是我們中國留學生所欠缺的,他們更希望我們參加學術調研、體育運動、社會活動參與和自發性組織的學生社團,而不是被動地參加學校安排的外出活動,他們十分看重你在你的空余時間的活動和看到你在某一領域的成長。

                        很幸運自己參加了這場哈佛的講座。收獲蠻多。本次講座的主講人是一名哈佛大學的學士兼致知學堂的創始人。她從品質,學習,生活,志愿者以及報考美國大學等內容向我們講述了一場奇妙的盛宴,詮釋了作為一名哈佛人而具有的品質如陽光、大方、得體。從這場講座上面,我懂得了不少外國大學所注重的四種品質。招生官看重的是獨立性,個人特質以及可以為學校帶來的貢獻,然而目前中國多數學生的現狀是這樣的:無文化信仰、缺乏主動性、缺乏領導力、極易被替代的個人特質。在課外活動方面,我們也更應該主動地進行學術調研,體育運動,社會活動參與,自發性組織的學生社團。

                        腳踏實地,放眼全球。主講人Nancy的一腔流利口語演講不僅讓我對外國的大學所注重的人格與品質有了更深刻的了解,更讓我樹立了更宏偉的人生目標,做出對人類有貢獻的偉大事業!謝謝!

                        這次哈佛大學學士的講座,傳達了哈佛大學對學生領導立、獨立性、個人特質的要求,2016哈佛大學報告提出弱化標準化考試的重要性,更看重每位學生能腳踏實地,放眼全球,持續地參加和我們周圍社區有關的活動,為他人作出的貢獻。要求我們重新思考中國的文化特征以及自己的身份認同,嘗試設計自己的獨立調研項目,盡早參與真實的學習。當前中國許多學生無文化信仰,缺乏主動性,靠被動式學習。我們要投入到主動式學習,主動參與學術研究,體育活動,參與和組織社會活動,在學習和活動中培養領導能力,自信心,創造性,展現自己的獨立性和不可替代的個人特質,這是名校招生所看重的,更是這個社會所需要的。

                           I learned a lot about the foreign university in todays lecture. If we want to be admitted by the American university, leadership, confidence, creativity and determination are very necessary. We should be more independent and active. It is meaningful to join some associations and activities in the society as well as do more contribution to the dreaming school, family even the country.
