The importance of CRITICAL THINKING according to Ms. Nelly Rurangwa

Over the years critical thinking has been a great tool for achievers. Critical thinking is considered as making logical and well thought judgements for the accumulated information. In ancient times, it was considered as a gift granted to the chosen ones by the gods, but lucky enough, everyone can do it.

Knowing the magnitude of this undermined, yet indispensable skill, Ms. Nelly Rurangwa who is the president of the Clinical Psychology Students Association in Rwanda (CPSAR), spared her time and graced Rwanda We Want club members of G.S Kacyiru II in Gasabo district with a lecture about CRITICAL THINKING. This session was in line with the celebration of the international peace day.

“Critical thinking is a shortcut to reach our goals” Ms. Rurangwa said. She explained that through critical thinking, one can analyze, assess and improve the quality of the information at hand which includes dropping the unnecessary data, and thus saving time in our journey towards success.

She also talked about the importance of critical thinking in knowing oneself and knowing one’s priorities or directions in life, for critical thinking is self-directed, self-disciplined, self-monitored, and self-corrective thinking.

Lastly, she said: “Life is summed up in our thoughts.” Because our actions start as thoughts.
