I believe that media helps us express ourselves

As an international student I found it challenging leaving my family and my closest friends behind. Not being able to see them every day or talking to them face to face.

It is in moments like these, that I’m beyond grateful to live in our generation, where applications like Facetime or Snapchat exist and making the distance feel a little less long.

As a music enthusiast I am even more found of my media. Being able to browse through decades of music, being inspired by artists and connecting with others, who share the same passions and even having discussions with people, who don’t share similar opinions, amazes me.

I don’t think media is evil.

I believe that we are responsible for the way we react towards media; is there an Ad that bothers you, would you like to shut up a politician that keeps on referring to issues, that still don’t get fixed, etc. The list could go on and on, but to make my point:

Be openminded towards media, don’t speak to fast or make rational decisions.

Try to see the world though other people eyes and explore all the sides that our media has to offer.
