Ultimately , this experience helped shape who I am today, and I believe this played a big role when I was choosing colleges. My friends all chose attend a community college back home, however, I clearly am not following in their footsteps. Although I do miss my friends, they reassure me that I made the right choice when they tell me how jealous they are that I do not have to live at home with Mom and Dad anymore.
I created a power point to visually narrate my story because I felt as if I could tell about my experience in an appealing and effective way. Since I was talking about my childhood in this piece, I went into the visual with a childish theme in mind. This is why I chose to use simple colors and fonts like Chalkboard, and Arial Rounded. Also, I thought putting the time on each slide throughout the incident would help the reader to follow the story.
Finding images was challenging for me because I wanted to be consistent with the images that I used, but since I only had one picture of myself from the incident, I had to use images from the internet. Some are free stock images, and some were found in google. It was still challenging to find pictures to match continuously with the others, but I believe it still provides a narrative flow and adds emotion to the storyline. Another thing I struggled with at first was the animations. I have recently switched to a macintosh computer, so it just took a little time to get familiar with. Arranging the images was simple because I just had to add a picture that would fit the information for the particular slide I was working on. Overall, I enjoyed this project and I am glad that I explored outside of my comfort zone.
