My professional skills have definitely also improved. I feel that this mainly happened because of the big amount of group work I did this year. Working in a group requires a lot of clear communication and making concrete plans. I worked in different groups this year that consisted from people from different years and programs. This made it clear to me that a lot of misunderstandings can happen if didn’t ask how we wanted to work and I should be afraid to ask things.  In the beginning I was a bit shy to ask things but after asking realized that the benefit of working in a group is that others have different insights and together many good ideas can be made. Beside just working together with others also my individual skills improved. Slowly I started to find it easier to do research on my own and write reflection because I started to understand what should be written in a reflection, and why. These skills for example really showed in my elective Designing for multiple stakeholders.
