Why I love my media

I love my media because it gives you space to be yourself. In the real world it is often difficult to truly be yourself because of social pressure or even laws, but on the internet, you can present yourself however you want. If that is who you really are, who people want you to be or who you would like to be. It doesn’t matter because the possibilities are endless. Media have presented us with a new reality where you don’t have to be afraid to speak up, share, like, feel, learn, laugh and love. But most importantly: Media allow us to connect.
