This is what I wrote:
With ethnocentrism feature, an individual tends to speculate and judge other coalitions as well as their way of life in the society. It would be accurate to state ethnocentrism as a personal standard since it differentiates persons as they all pose unique perspectives. The ethnocentrism feature results in the competition of individuals as they try to stand out in society. Competition can be contemplated as being the struggle that exists over the available scarce resources. The ideology, in this case, might be considered to be a scarce resource in the community. A competition that emerges between two or more groups results in the existence of influencing feelings; that is, a sense of harshness and persecution actions. In fact, due to established competition, every person or group involved might want to emerge the most power. For example, competition might rely on jobs, land, labor, political office, or housing. The power ability is that which makes a group or individual oppose the others and stick to objectives laid.
As a human practitioner, one might want to reflect on various communities. Some would be considered inferior while others are superior. For instance, minority colonized groups can be characterized by visible physical and racial aspects (Borg, Hertel, & Hermann, 2017). Such a group is considered to hold minor status and would be referred to a coalition that is colonized minorly. Of course, the minority colonized groups will be assigned to roles that exploit them such as slavery. Minority colonized groups will be rejected in society. On the other hand, the immigrant groups of minorities are partially considered and handleless harsh experiences. That is, they have the opportunity to propose to their host society despite pressure for migration. I would say with certainty that indifferences between the communities are based on race. Services for practitioners will therefore rely on the need to help the minority group.

My values are based mostly on what jumped out to me if I were describing myself. The values that I chose were balance, caring, commitment compassion, entrepreneurial, family, future generations, independence, perseverance and well-being. I used this to create my personal values statement.
In my chosen profession, I get to teach, assist and motivate others. My business is not driven by profits. It is driven by my passion to help others and still maintain a health work/home life. I promote positivity, creativity and compassion.
These two standards for human services connect most with my top 5 values. The reason is because I am here to help so even if I feel a certain way about something, it is not place to change peoples opinions. Also some services that I provide are going digital and I definitely want confidentiality for be at the forefront.
STANDARD 7 Human service professionals ensure that their values or biases are not imposed upon their clients.
STANDARD 9 When providing services through the use of technology, human service professionals take precautions to ensure and maintain confidentiality and comply with all relevant laws and requirements regarding storing, transmitting, and retrieving data. In addition, human service professionals ensure that clients are aware of any issues and concerns related to confidentiality, service issues, and how technology might negatively or positively impact the helping relationship.

As a human service practitioner, I recognize the importance of accountability. I account for all the resources that I manage to ensure that it is utilized effectively and that every program is transparent. All relevant information is availed to all stakeholders.
I always seek new opportunities to develop and grow. I aspire to continually acquire new skills, competencies, and knowledge that will enable me to serve others and myself better.
I appreciate high standards of quality and effectiveness in all aspects of my life.
I acknowledge that we cant be as perfect as human beings but tie my work ethic around the principle of excellence in serving others.
I value close relationships, the family is of utmost importance to me, and they are central to my decisions.
My five top values include accountability, continuous learning, efficiency, excellence, and family. Many ethical standards relate to my top values, including Standard 36 and Standard 24. According to Standard 36, Human service practitioners hold a commitment to continually advance their knowledge and skills to serve their clients more effectively. To offer optimal services to our clients as human service professionals, it is important to seek opportunities to develop professionally. According to Wark (2010), human service professionals need to continue learning to remain abreast of current trends important to the human service profession. Standard 24 emphasizes effectiveness, which is one of my core values. Clients deserve the highest quality services from human service professionals; therefore, it is their responsibility to provide effective services to their clients at all times.
The connection between my top values and these human service ethical standards will play a significant role in my practice as a human service professional. First, it will enable me to understand how my guiding principles and what I stand for aligns with my profession. Continuous learning will enable me to grow professionally and to be able to serve my clients better using different approaches. Secondly, as a human service professional, connecting my values and the human service ethics standards will enable me to uphold the integrity and ethics required in the human service profession. Tying personal values and professional values enable human service professionals to excel in their roles (Lewis,2002).

You can only fake things for so long. I say this to say, a practitioner cannot practice outside of their personal values. Eventually, your values, if not aligned with your work, will shine through. It is important to always engage in reflective thoughts about who you are and what you are doing. In doing so, you will be able to quickly identify when something is out of alignment.
