“Who am I?” That is the quintessential question that students have been asked to examine throughout this unit. In Design, Digital Media and English, we have been asked to reflect on ourselves, our values and sense of self as tied to our world views and sense of self. Then we were asked to express this through prose or imagery. Our goals in this unit were to uniquely and creatively express who we are. Throughout this assignment I have been forced to consider experiences vastly different from my own as well as confront and come to terms with my own ‘inadequacies’. It is important that we examine our thought process and our hidden biases in order to get a better sense of who we are and who we want to be in the future.
One of the first projects that we worked on was the Personal Essay, a response to a college prompt of our choice. Through this essay, we were able to explore various interesting topics as much as we wanted. Click here to read my personal essay.
