Earlier this year I spent a few months abroad, as a part of my gap year. I was excited to go on this adventure and experience so many new things, but with this excitement also came a certain anxiety. I was anxious to miss out on everything at home.
While I was away, my grandmother turned 80. My whole family gathered to celebrate her birthday. I heart my media because they allowed me to experience this day with everyone. I video called them, received photos and texts and almost felt like I was there with them.
That was when I truly realized the positive effects media have on my life. I started looking at media as a way to stay in touch and grow closer to people. My media enable me to stay friends with the people I met during my gap year and to become friends with the people I am meeting in Amsterdam.
