Creating Inquiry 4 was very fun for me. I have done photo stories in the past, so it was something I knew how to do, and I also understood how long the process does take in order for the video to look good. I was very proud of my final product, and I was extremely intrigued that a few days after I posted my video to , a woman commented on it. She was rude and expressed her views in a harsh manner, basically stating that everything in my video was a lie and I had no idea what I was talking about. I went to her account, and found out that her daughter is a contestant in beauty pageants, and that she is actually a pageant mom. I ended up deleting that video because I redid my voiceover, but I was somewhat shocked at how harsh she was. It made me realize that the real world may not like the things I have to say, but I do believe it is important for me to have opinions and speak them if I believe others should know what I do. Having my video and blog open for the public to see is a risk I am willing to take, that I may not have taken previous to this class. Because I had to put my video on , I was able to overcome the barrier I had of allowing others to see my work. Criticism is not fun, but I’m growing and learning that it comes anytime my work is showcased, and I understand that. I decided that I am going to submit my video and one of my papers to CCM, because my experience in English 111 taught me to be more open with my work, and share it with more people if I am truly proud of it. That is a new feeling for me, and I’m glad that I was finally able to grow.
