“Why I Heart My Media”

The only thing that comes to me while I’m repeating this over and over in my mind is how indecisive I am about loving it. I’ve been dancing since I was a child, and being observed, videotaped, and published has never been unfamiliar to me. My parents made me feel proud by complimenting the number of likes they received on Facebook. My time has now been completely consumed by the media.

I can spread my art with the assistance of the media.

I can feel strong with the support of the media.

I can embrace who I am with the influence of the media.

So it doesn’t matter whether I like it or not. The media plays a crucial role, and I strive to take the lead in this process.
