"To me, Global Citizenship is when individuals recognize themselves as part of the global community, beyond national and cultural borders, and they feel a sense of responsibility and commitment toward the world.
After working on SDG #12 and SDG #13 for about a year, I have incorporated them into my lifestyle. For SDG #12, I consistently ensure that appliances such as the microwave, electric kettle, and chargers are not left on standby to conserve energy. This practice has significantly reduced my electricity consumption. As for SDG #13, I actively collect and recycle plastic bottles and encourage others to do so.
The most significant aspect of BWB was the invaluable leadership experience I have gained. By serving as the club president for two years, I have acquired valuable insights in effective communication strategies and techniques that have helped boost productivity. Moreover, it has helped me get a deeper understanding of my own capabilities as a leader, and it has enhanced my leadership skills."
