I agree with Raymond Hernandez statement about leadership and advocacy, “it comes as you grow in your field” (Laureate Ed., 2010) However, I feel we will not be able to grow without the added effort of self reflection. I have included an article that was shared with me about the reflective practice. In this article they discuss the importance of reflection and how you can affectively go through the process.
