Who Am I?
I think there are a few things in our lives that really define who we are or who we will become. For me it started in Junior High. I took a robotics class and I met some of my closest friends there. A lot of it stuck with me until I couldn’t take any more classes for it. Luckily for me I found something that would stick to me further.
When I was in high school, I took a class called Audio Video Productions and it was influenced me the most out of anything in my life at that time. The first project we ever had was titled Who Am I? I never realized the significance of a project like that. Who was I? Who am I now? Who will I be? The project consisted of creating a video about yourself that defines who you are. It doesn’t seem like anything we would like to do because who likes talking about themselves right? Especially having to present it to a class full of people who could care less. But I look back at it now and I think it’s a project we should all do every couple of years, because the fact is that we all change. Whether physical or not our goals may change or our outlooks. It’s also, I think, a sort of existential question because of that same reason. I don’t really know who I am anymore, but I know id like to find out. This is the kind of project we should do for ourselves, not necessarily for a presentation. I wonder what other project people have worked on that have made a significant impact in their lives whether you learned a lesson, or realized something about yourself.
While I haven’t done the project since that day I hope to make a film about it sometime in the future.
