4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Our team had problems on time management, like when one or two of us were not able to meet with the group because of important agendas that they really needed to attend to. When the day of our interview came, on the way to the house, we were somewhat lost, but with confidence, we ask some of the residents where the “Mundo Haus” was, and they were very willing to help us and they told us the directions to the house. All these problems we encountered were given solutions through our teamwork and cooperation.
