Why I Heart My Media

Living in the twenty-first century may be the most exciting century for the younger generation. The possibilities and changes you get with media as a teenager and a young adult can change your life drastically. For example, young entrepreneurs building their own Social Media accounts, gaining thousands of followers, getting sponsorships with admirable brands and creating communities all over the world, all because of media. The way the younger generation thinks about the world in media diverges immensely with the older and more conservative mindset. As my parents told me, it was completely normal for people to live their whole life in the city they were born in, not knowing the activity in other parts of the world. Media has brought a big U-turn in this standard principle in a global way, a personal way and even creative way. For me as a young adult, starting in a new chapter, my world is an open and endless space of opportunities because of media.
