My project is very indicative of my personality. First of all, I think it will properly capture my entrepreneurial tendencies. It will be clear the reason that I have interest in the student loan space, and I will be attacking the issues in a critical and innovative way. My project will also tap into my creative side, an aspect of myself I wish was utilized more often. I will be able to incorporate many mediums I am either skilled at, or am talented in. I’m particularly excited to be able to accompany my writing with photography. I’ve always loved taking pictures and have had a knack for capturing moments, and am looking forward to coupling this with my writing.
Overall though, I don’t think this project will be particularly in line with any of my social media presence. Over the last few years I’ve been very quiet online, and my personality today is not incredibly aligned with my personality back when I was active on social media. In general, my aversion to social media comes from an inclination towards privacy, and the fact that I’m very conscious that what I post can be seen by the entire internet. Because of this, my project will be in line with my talents and personality, but it will surely not showcase myself. To equate this to creative nonfiction for example, there will not be a tremendous amount of ‘I’. Instead I will choose to focus more heavily on telling the story of my subjects, while still being conscious that they may have similar tendencies, in terms of willingness to share online, as myself.
