Testimonials - Sarah Tabone - MSPF


 I participated in the first edition of MSPF in the year 2013-2014, during the second year of my studies in the Bachelor of psychology Honours at the University of  Malta.  I had spoken to another student in my course, Svetlana Gatt, who was also interested, and although we barely knew each other at the time, we decided to team up.  We went on to become good friends and place first in the competition!  Participating in MSPF definitely helped enhance my critical thinking skills as we were encouraged to look at the topics with a critical eye, a skill that served me well for my assignments and dissertation.  Also, I learnt to look at topics which at first glance appeared unrelated to psychology from a psychological perspective.  Additionally, the competition gave us the opportunity to improve our research and presentation skills, as well as to receive and handle criticism during a presentation.  After placing first, I participated in a student exchange between Dutch and Maltese students, during which I participated in a number of activities such as talks, cultural visits and workshops, all related to the theme Identity and culture.  MSPF has been a great opportunity to enhance my critical thinking skills, meet new people and make new friends.
