This semester has been incredible. My first semester of college was marked by the "get the grade" mindset. I wasn't interested in my classes, and I wasn't engaged in my classes, I was memorizing information for tests so that I could achieve a letter grade. That isn't how real education happens though. Albert Einstein once said of the same issue, that "This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year." I can empathize.
To anyone reading this portfolio:
1) Thanks for checking out my work. And
2) You have good taste in reading material.
Now, on to the real stuff…
Heading into class registration for my second semester at UNC, I had two goals: take interesting classes, and take advantage of the First-Year Seminar program. First-Year Seminars are some of the coolest courses you can take at Carolina, and I didn’t want to miss out on an opportunity that only freshmen have. As I looked over the list of available seminars, this one caught my eye.
This is my final project, like many others I decided to make a collage. This image is meant to make one think about their youth and how innocent the world would be if people could see the world through a child's eyes.
Here is my final project. I decided to do a bunch of mini collages and put them together in a movie. I used iMovie for it, and you can read about it in my collage. Sorry for my voice, I got really sick so I have an awful sounding voice over.
