The reason for my love of media is the variety of entertainments it provides. My love of media began through my mother. She was a communications student and a radio DJ who loves everything pop culture related. She began expanding my repertoire by introducing me to movies such as the Sound of Music and Out of Africa. These movies shaped my understanding and knowledge of the world. As I grew older my passion grew. For example, I took higher level Film in high school and developed so much passion that I intend to delve into the world of film production. My growing knowledge in pop culture and media has also been extremely useful in making new friends in university and creating a connection with people in a new environment. Now more than ever I believe it is important that not only do we share our love for the things we are passionate about but use it as a vessel to spread positivity and awareness.
