My name is Deborah Cruz, I'd like to think of myself as an artist, I enjoy creating and making things. It is one of the main reason why I decided to major in madia, because I have the opportunity to create. The media can create a persona for you, these days people live their lives according to the media and to social networks. Recently, I tried deleting my Facebook for personal reasons, only to find out that I couldn't "delete" I could only "deactivate" right then it hit me, with our vast fusion with social media it is now nearly imposible to erase yourself from the map. There will always be a trace of you in the media, so now it is up to us to make the best of that.
I have tried to do my part for the new social age, I began with a blog which made me realize I had nothing to write about and made me feel depressed and a little challanged when I realized I had commitment issues with the blog. That project quickly went out the window and left back where I started...wordless. So I got unfocused, left my creativity behind and focused on the most uncreative thing in the world. School.
Like many people I twitter and instagram, that is what my media consumption revolves around, mostly for the purpose of becoming known and getting "out there." Last semester I took part in a 3 minute film for my class when I acted in it, it was my first perfomance and hopefully my last, yet it is still currently on YouTube, where I avoid it at all cost. Ultimately, I am trying to get into the magazine world where I wish to pursue a careeer as a writer.
