Personal autonomy and independence of one's own ability to make choices (safely and respectfully)

Openness, honesty and trust

Desire to be innovative
A sense of belonging, being visible, being heard and understood, both emotionally and intellectually
Capability – a sense of believing in one's own potential and always striving to master challenging activities
Autonomous thinking – wanting to find answers to one's own questions, not just the questions a teacher asks
Independence – independent thinking, wanting to learn how to learn
