Primarily, the most intriguing question in media is how and why it dominates the narrative of many countries and the world.   Outside of an educational setting or scholarly conversation it seems taboo to acknowledge the hold that the media has on most people. From cable television, Instagram to radio there is a constant output contributing to the way society thinks. Secondly, where do I fit in this broad 🌎  of media and how would I like show up? It’s common for people to seek refuge behind a screen. Many use Facebook as therapy, a way to express themselves but what about creating change through social media?
