Why I love media

Last year when the pandemic hit, I really had nothing to do. I did not go to school and I had quit my job right before the pandemic started. To kill time indoors I started going on Youtube. There I found a video of the band bts. I really had no idea what I was in for when I clicked the video. Over the course of the spring of 2020, I became more and more intrigued, and I eventually became a fan. It changed my whole understanding of self-love and dedication. Finding them helped me so much through the pandemic and to this day. If I didn’t have the media to connect me to people from other places I would have been shaped differently. Connecting with people in other places happened 100% through media during the pandemic, whether it was through Youtube, Instagram or Weverse. It has made me discover a lot about myself. This is what I love about media, it challenges us and makes us think in differently; a simple click on a Youtube video can change your entire perspective. Student nr: 13818570
