    Having a systems-thinking mindset is extremely crucial in this step as in order to become an effective changemaker, I have to be able to understand and comprehend the big picture. I must identify several elements of that system. After that, I must understand the key relationship within the system to reveal the patterns of behavior that can be positive. All these steps are crucial to solving a big and complex problem like quality education. I can look T THE system with multiple stakeholders to allow me to see the problem from various perspectives to gain a better understanding of the issue.

    It is important to have a systems-thinking mindset when attempting to define and understand complex problems because it is faster to come up with a solution this way. I personally am a very sensitive and emotional person and sometimes my feelings get in the way when I am trying to explain and/or understand something; so, by having this mindset it forces me to be practical and go step by step rather than diving right into the problem. Having a systems thinking mindset is also good because I can identify if my ideas are reasonable or farfetched. It is crucial to understand if there are any patterns and to focus on the background knowledge in order to try and change the future.
