Media a means to educate

Media allows anyone and everyone to have a voice. Although there are many aspects of media that scare me, the most valuable aspect of media to me is that it allows undermined communities to make themselves heard. There are millions of stories out there that aren’t covered in mainstream media platforms because it is not bringing in views and clicks, but aside from the capitalistic way of thinking media allows personal stories to be heard and educates people. Education is one of the most crucial pillars of our society and without education, chaos would rise. Each story teaches us something and unless we allow ourselves to learn about these stories we cannot expand our vision and our impact on the world and people. There are issues going on in different places of the world that no one has yet heard of and media has the potential to inform us of these issues.
