This week we will interview one of our new students Stella. Let’s find out what made her join Tomoclub.
Stella is 11 years old. She joined Tomoclub this February.
Interviewer: Hello, Stella. How was today’s cohort?
Stella: It was super fun. We played The First Settlers for the first time. The gaming rounds were excellent.
Interviewer: That’s great to hear. What did you learn from the game?
Stella: I learned a valuable lesson regarding resource management. The game made me think about how I can manage money more thoughtfully and utilize them in critical situations. From now on I will try not to spend my pocket money recklessly.
Interviewer: It’s a really good lesson. This practice will come in handy in the future. What is your favorite Tomo game?
Stella: I love playing Secret Santa. The game has helped me come out of my shell. I never knew this side of myself.
Interviewer: Can you elaborate?
Stella: I have always been a nerd. I loved reading books and researching different stuff. But I was too shy to discuss them with my teachers or friends. There were so many incidents when I knew something but didn’t respond in class or in group discussions.
I felt like I will stumble or embarrass myself. When I took part in the Tomoclub gaming rounds for the first time, I thought I can observe everything and play. But the moderator encouraged me to speak up and engage with other players.
In the second round, I was the leader and had to help my teammates to win the game. It was an intense situation, my teammates were asking for directions. So I had to break my shell and help them. Then everything went smoothly. We even won. That made me realize, my communication skills are not so bad.
Interviewer: We are glad that you understood your potential. How did you know about Tomoclub?
Stella: My mom got to know about it from a school webinar. She also printed the SEL worksheet. I have been following it for 7 days. I feel very calm and composed.
Interviewer: We are pleased to hear that. Thank you for your time.
