This question is probably an uncommon one on this website and isn't related to health. However, I thought I'll ask anyway and see if anybody is able to give me some assistance. I am a college student heading into my sophomore year and I am going to be a Resident Assistant (RA) as well. I am really excited to be an RA. I believe I will be a good RA because I am really helpful, understanding and pay attention to other people and their needs. However, I am by nature, an introvert and not someone who talks alot or is naturally seen as a leader. But I love meeting and getting to know new people and I believe this job has so many benefits and challenges that has the potential to help me grown as an individual. My question is, I am concerned about how people perceive me (I am small maid, quite thin etc...) and people seem to think that I am too innocent or too nice and strong... Does anybody have any advice, suggestions or anything in regard to my situation? No matter how assertive or engaging I get, people still do not see me as strong as I know I am and I don't want my kindness to be seen as weakness.
Thank you so much in advance!!
