Why I Heart my Media

I like media because it gives me the opportunity to feel engaged with everything happening on the planet. I think media is great, because it allows me to escape from real life without really escaping, for instance through watching a film or a cool videoclip. Media is amazing, because it is like a creative sketchbook for everybody. I love media because I get to meet people with the same interests, so I can share my opinions on the topics I’m passionate about, in the comments on YouTube, Instagram or a blog.

That’s why I heart my media, because it connects people from all over the world. And it allows me and so many others to get informed, laugh, get inspired and create.

And of course to giggle about memes all day.
