I N T R O D U C T I O N:
My name is Nicole Morales-Garcia and I’m a sophomore at Diamond Tech. I am passionate when it comes to art. I am observant, contemplative, humble, and creative. I can be seen as shy towards many people, but when I’m with my friends, that’s a different side. I have more weakness than strength. For example, my strengths are drawing, reading, and thinking, but my weakness are my anxiety, my ability to speak in public, my shyness, my grammar, and taking things seriously . My goal is to erase my weaknesses little by little and see myself improve.

My10yearPlan is a digital planning experience a step further by providing an online home for all of the activities in Career Choices or Career Choices & Changes. Each step of the learner’s own unique self-discovery, decision-making, and personal planning process is outlined in My10yearPlan Interactive, so they have a complete, mobile record of who they are, what they want, and how they plan to get it. Since I have made my action plan, nothing really has changed, since I barely started. With the 4 C’s, I say I’m doing fairly well with the critical thinking and creativity, but I don’t think I have improved on communication and collaboration. I mostly show my creativity in Digital Media because it’s related to art in many ways. I did a big collaboration in the WSI project, but that’s all. Communication like I said, is something I need to improve on more than collaboration. I don’t speak a lot, either I don’t want to or I can’t. Sometimes I want to speak, but my mouth does not want to be opened. I may not show it, but I do really try to make myself speak.
I D E N T I T Y A B S O L U T E:
My identity is very important. My identity may not be perfect, but there is some things I won’t change for anyone for any reason. For example, I am a night-owl, meaning I’m active at night. I do so many things at night (It is not what you think you dirty bastards) more than in the day time. I like to draw, a lot. I won’t stop drawing, it’s my passion. Drawing makes me who I am. Oh! And I won’t stop being a troublemaker… okay maybe.... nah . Some characteristics I worked hard to cultivate is being high-minded. Last year, I didn’t think of my surroundings, which was a bad thing oops, but now thinking of others is pretty nice. I have also improved (and still improving) on being confident towards myself. I can’t be confident towards myself, then how can I be confident towards other people? I hate asking myself that question because I know the answer. I can’t… unless I let myself change. My traits are important because it’s the full drawing.
O U T S I D E P E R C E P T I O N S:
When people just barely know me or even look at me, most people think I’m emo… kind of, but it doesn’t really bother me, but the one thing that kind of bothers me is just that I don’t really participate in anything, I’m seen as a person that can’t do anything, which is false. The thing is, I’ll most likely participate if I’m confident enough or/and I really know the subject well. Some generalizations I still experience is “She’s too shy” or “She’ll talk eventually”, but I’m not mad with that. Having my goals and my 10 year action plan made people realize that I really have a passion for drawing more than anything else.
G O A L S:
In the next two years, I just want to be me. I want to dress in clothes that makes me comfortable and wear black with some colors to show that I like other colors, I want to show more happy emotions, and still have a passion for art. My classmates and friends can help me express myself by just accepting who I am. To make sure people see me this way is to be more confident to myself and others.
I M P L I C A T I O N S F O R T H E F U T U R E:
There is opportunities for my job of interest, the problem is, that in Watsonville and around the area, it’s mostly focused on agriculture. There might not be opportunities around me, but this is why we have the internet. I also prefer to be self-taught so, this suits me. In the next two years, I would really like a job that's mostly related to my job of interest, but like I said before, the city and the cities around me are mostly focused on agriculture, so my backup plan is to work somewhere with a different career path for a while. This gives me a different perspective of the job and gain new skills. A paying job would definitely make me happy (I mean, who’s not happy with that) It will help me buy supplies for my artworks and to make an art portfolio that I always dream of. Before next school year, I want to improve my communication skills and my art style.
