This multimedia class has taught me a lot. I’ve learned how multimedia can affect us and our views on ourselves. I have also learned how media uses us and our interests to figure out what they want to sell and how to capture our attention. I’ve learned how multimedia can become very distracting to other things in our life and control us. I know now how to use certain programs such as Photoshop and use a blog. I also know how to take good and interesting pictures.
My multimedia class isn’t my only class. I’m also taking a class where we learn about the HIV/AIDS epidemic. In that class I’ve learned how the diseased is spread, the history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, how it has affected our nation and our world, medications and ways to control the disease, and how to prevent it.
My favorite memory from HSI was probably the night we went bowling. Bowling was fun but the car trip back was even better. We had the music on so loud and everyone in the car was dancing and singing. My friends and I had gotten pretty close at that point and we had such a good time together. We passed a wedding and started cheering for them; by the time we got back to the dorms we were laughing so hard we could hardly walk up the stairs.
Through HSI I’ve grown a lot as a person. I’ve become more confident and learned to be more social. I’ve made so many new friends here, some of which I’ll never forget. I wish this camp wasn’t over and I would definitely do it again if I could. When I get back I’m definitely going to recommend people come to this camp, it’s such an amazing experience. It’s something you can’t explain, you just have to live it. I don’t think I could ever have an experience like this one again.
