Coming up with just one sentence that sums up who I am and what I want to do with my life is really hard. While I was growing up and up to this day I still ask myself who I am, who I want to be and what I want to do in order to see the world change into a better place. After watching Daniel Pink’s video I started thinking about my sentence, which is why I thought of three of my strengths, one of my talents and what I believe my target audience needs and wants.

Three strengths:

  1.  I am a learner. I am a sole believer that we never stop learning. I am always up for learning new things about everything there is.
  2.  I am a good listener. I like to listen to people and pay close attention to what they are saying in order to understand them better. With this strength I feel like a better human because I have the opportunity to understand why others act in the way they do; it makes me feel like I know the person I am talking to in a deeper way.
  3. Speaking Spanish, English and French. In a world where you need to at least speak two languages, I feel that speaking three is even better. But, I like speaking three languages because it gives me the opportunity to learn more about different cultures and being able to communicate to a larger amount of people.

A talent:

  1. I am creative. Since I was about five or six I knew that I loved drawing, coloring, Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 5.36.48 PMpainting, you name it. Then when I was about 15 I realized that I wanted to do something with my life that involved using my creativity. I play the piano, I love taking pictures, I know how to paint, I love creating different outfits, and well my career choice is being creative, which leads to what my target audience needs and wants

I intend on working in a fashion magazine. What I want to do with this is change the idea that women have to look in a certain way. Fashion magazines, tend to post articles about losing weight and “How to look like a model in 10 steps” when it should not be that way. Wanting to look like a stick figure or simply wanting to look like someone else is not healthy for the mind or the body. We all come in different shapes, and color, and we should embrace who we are. We are all beautiful no matter how we look, it is time that the fashion industry starts embracing that more. I believe we all need and want this to happen, which is what I intend to do for the world.

My sentence is challenged with social media since a lot of people do not accept that others are different. An example of this is what happened with actress Leslie Jones. It is saddening that we live in a world where because someone looks a certain way they should be treated different for it. I not only hope to make a change in the fashion industry, but also make everyone think why it is so wrong to discriminate people on how they look.

My sentence is:

I am someone who helps others to love eachother and themselves while I am trying to love myself and accept others as they are, no matter their skin color or shape.

Thank you for reading.

  1. First of all, I love your blog layout. It is exactly what I pictured when I thought of what would be on your blog.

    I like how you kind of talked the reader through exactly what was going on in your head. It was great to see that and kinda be there with you as you discover who you are and what you want to be. Keep doing all of the great things you’re doing, see you in class!

  3. I loved how you were able to explain the different parts of yourself that make up you. It really helps to get to know you and your character. It was hard for me to narrow down my strengths and talents, but it was cool to see how you were able to and how you formed your sentence around those!

  4. Virginia, I loved your sentence! I am also someone who loves the creativity in the world and finding a way to distinguish oneself and love that fashion can do that for people. The fashion industry and the entertainment industry in general tend to look for reasons that people are different and then use that as a weapon against people. It is hard to deal with the situations it presents and I am glad that you want to change the way individuals view themselves and others.

  5. I really enjoyed reading your blog! I think you have a very unique voice and an interesting life perspective that translates beautifully in your blog.

    I agree that it’s important to appreciate diversity, rather than shame and attack those who are different. Your sentence is so powerful, and I think everyone should incorporate your idea of acceptance into their sentences.
