Although this was pretty disappointing, I knew I had to come up with a different idea. So I finally decided to do a "How to Survive College" video. I figured this would be a fun and simple way to complete the assignment. I also have been wanting to reflect on my past two years in college and share some advice to kids entering college.
So here is the final product I came up with:
Although I do wish I would have given myself more time to perfect the video, I am happy with the result. I delivered what I wanted to convey to my audience and I hope it reaches people who might be interested in the topic. My goal was to speak on something that I would have wanted to hear about when I was entering college.
YouTube still has a big presence in today's social media world. How many times have you caught yourself spending hours upon hours watching YouTube videos? I know I have multiple times. It is addicting. There is just about anything you would want to watch on YouTube. Videos are also one of the most compelling ways to tell a story or inform an audience on a certain topic. Combining audio with a visual is definitely a way to catch somebody's attention.
After this assignment, I respect the YouTubers who make a commitment to posting a video every week (or even more than that a week). There is so much time and dedication involved. I don't know if I could keep up as a regular YouTuber, but I have set it as my goal to try.
You can find my video on my social media accounts:
Try something new and start a YouTube channel! You could even start one with your friend. Keep reaching for the stars you high societal souls!
