2 Companies I really admire and Why

        

I have been watching YouTube videos for many years. I admire this company because it allows the creator to be creative. YouTube was one of my inspirations to start editing videos. YouTube is now one of the most popular social media sites in the world. 

       Twitch is an online live streaming platform where broadcasters can release and perform their content in real-time with viewer interaction live. I first found out of Twitch several years ago when I wanted to find a hobby that doesn't involve being the viewer but a content creator. Now as a live broadcaster, I consider Twitch as my second hobby, influencing many individuals around the world with my creative content and entertainment.

Apple is a leading technology company. I am intrigued by technology and all of Apples releases. 

Let me tell you about ...

Setting the stage. While In Brooklyn College I created my own music video for production class as an undergraduate student 

The beginning. I had to make a short video for a final project so i chose to create an antibully music video.

The middle. I was very stressed at the time and I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to complete it in time however I told myself I would try my best and not give up. I wrote the song with my friend, I recorded the audio by another friend, then I got another friend to film it and I stayed up all night editing it.

The End. I got an A+ on the project and I also submitted it to an antibully contest online and I received an award for it.

Reflection. I learned the importance of team work, hard work and determination.
