Taco's are unique types of food. You can customize them to the way you want. You can put a variety of foods in it. It is a traditional Mexican dish which has a tortilla composed of fillings. I prefer to have meat and some vegetables and lot if cheese.
My favourite sports team is the Toronto Maple Leafs. They are the team from the city I was born. I grew up watching the Maple Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada. They are going to be the underdog who wins the Stanley Cup.
My favourite game is Trivia Crack. It is a game I like to play on my spare time with my friends. It is a game that tests and extends my knowledge. There are 6 categories; Science, Geography, Sports, Entertainment, History and Art.
I would change my preferred leadership style in different situations. It would depend on the results I am looking for in the current situation. For instance, if I had wanted to bring stability quickly from a major crisis/issue that had occurred. I would use leadership styles as a Delegator or Teller. These types of leadership styles allow me to make decisions faster. I am able to give responsibilities to individuals and focus on other issues. These types of leadership styles can also used by University Professors or at a workplace. These people identity/hand responsibilities to members and assume the team has everything to solve the problem. They tend to not waste time interacting with members. I would use leadership styles of a joiner, if I were someone who is trying to get a better understanding of a team members view. For instance, if I am the manager of a company, where there are frequent conflicts an lacks teamwork. I would be a "Leader as a Joiner." I would put myself into the shoes of the workers. I would be able to recognize an solve the problems the team members are facing. This would then create a better work environment at my company. The leadership styles are similar and different in many ways. Some may see autocratic/dictatorial, whereas other styles appear democratic. Each style has its' own benefits, meaning the leadership style can differ based on the situation.
As a family, we support and help each other. When one is having trouble achieving something, we go to their aid. Caring, and support are the chains which hold us together.
We are Hindu. Our family is somewhat religious. We go to the temple once in a while. We follow certain traditions where you stay vegetarian for certain days to show your respect to the gods.
The car resembles our familys' passion for road trips. We go to Montreal or the beach every summer. We usually go to our relatives living in Montreal or to tourist attractions.
