Sharing My Story

For my final presentation in my Ethnic American Class, I am choosing the option to share my own American story. When I first heard about this project in the beginning of the semester, I was kind of excited. When I was in high school, I was always embarrassed to tell my story to others and now I embrace it because I know I will help others realize that they are not alone and that I am such a braver and stronger person now than I ever was. I am a little bit confused of how to present it and relate it to the class and our topics we discussed throughout the semester. However, as I was free writing, I came up with two ideas to present it: creating a chapter of a novel or creating a video using Animoto from the digital tools suggestion list. I have always wanted to write a novel and it would be interesting to create a narrator and tell my story; but, creating a video and me being able to record myself speaking could connect to people on a deeper level. The people we read or watched about throughout the semester, always had little say in their lives and I used to feel that way; but, my vision in life is bigger and better. I went through a lot of family issues growing up and into my adult years and I truly want to share that because it made me into the person I am today. I also was thinking of an idea to use all the stories we read or watched and connect it to my life and what it means to me because I think it would help me connect my story to the American perspective. I am looking forward to getting started! 🙂
