When i ask myself, what media has changed in my life, the answer i get is very simple. Media has shaped the person i am today and the life i am living.
I grew up in a Post-Soviet country, (and believe me, life there is much more difficult and crucial then in more developed countries) and media was my first step out from my country and culture and into the big interesting world we all live in. First of all, even when i was 5-6 years old, i used to watch cartoons and movies in different languages (mostly in English), even though I did not understand anything at first, i started to learn the basics that way. When i was around 7-8 years old, I discovered Youtube – platform which had any music my heart desired to listen to, and through youtube I fell in love with music – exploring different artists and everything about them.
So when i grew up and started to think about my career, I knew that I had to somehow be involved in media, I started to work at a local TV channel, and I fell in love with television that way, and how fun and interesting it is to dedicate your life creating media for others and yourself, but I still want to experience working with other types of media to really decide what i’m supposed to do with my life!
Today I am studying more about Media to try to deeply and truly understand how it works and I hope that my interest and love for it enough to continue to live my life with media. ))
