Description about the event
In the class there were so many activities held however I select to discuss about the Iceland making activities which held in Buttterfiled campus. It was about the how to use useless things like colour and shining paper, some small plastic tubes, thread. It was the different class mates whom we never met and there were not from our campus. Our unit leader arrange this class for better understanding the leadership change and how we have to work in different environment if we have to handle the situation with the other group people. How we can build the leadership in our self.
There were our class mates and other classmates who are from other class. Tutor divided us all in three groups and gave all materials in the folder. We were thinking how we can work with the unknown people. After few minutes she describe about herself and informed to give introductory details about our self to everyone so everyone know everyone’s name in class.
After dividing in group we have to work together in the 20 minutes we have to create an Iceland to use that material. We start the work after introduced. We were three girls in the group at starting point it was difficult to work because everyone has their imagination for their Iceland. We gave our idea but its tough to handle and work with different kind of group people. In the starting it was not going well, everyone busy in their type of work I felt its wasting of time. I start to gave a picture that if we work like this way we will save our time and we can create a beautiful Iceland within time. Agree with that idea and give respect to their thinking I gave plan and divided activities to all members. It create a nice Iceland.

I wasn’t agree with the idea of them and dissatisfied because it was not a good picture. Out of two girl I was agree for few points with her but with the other girl totally disagree and that girl from my class, I was confused what should I do, I start to talk with the different class group girl and try to give my idea and convinced her.
