(Referring to the internet in general)

I heart my media because it makes my life easier in every way; Google maps helps me get anywhere I want, Whatsapp allows me to comunicate with my friends on the other side of the world, Google translate makes me understand things that I could never understand.. And so on.  Media is present everywhere nowadays, and even though our dependence on it makes us vulnerable in many ways, it just makes our lives infinitely simpler.

Another thing that I love about media is the fact that it is a very powerful source of inspiration in many aspects, since artistic content can be shared internationally for anyone to see. Media has achieved something that a couple of decades ago was unthinkable; it has transformed the world into one unified community, in which any opinion can be shared and listened to regardless of where you come from or your background.
