My portfolio is going to highlight the connections between me and my family and how I define myself as an individual based off of the foundation that they have provided me with. My portfolio will be about how every piece I have written for the course this semester has revolved around the love hate relationship between me and my family and how the passions that I hold are largely due to their influence in my life.
I am excited to have a portfolio that is online and will represent my accomplishments as a student as well as my personal growth and achievements. I am excited to have something to look back on that will show how I have grown. I am also excited to have something that shows my connection to my parents and pays them respect. I am still struggling to figure out how I am independent of my family, like really truly independent and not just physically separate from them, but emotionally and mentally. The biggest fear I have is that even by me completing this portfolio which shows how great an influence my parents remain in my life as I am away at university, that I am showing how I truly am not independent of them and their hold over me and that I still have a lot of growth and maturing to complete. I fear that by me focusing more attention on my family that is proves more that I still need to grow individually.
