An Introduction (Naomi)

August 31, 2016 | | 1 Comment

My name is Naomi, my parents much like others, came to this country in order to fulfill their needs for new opportunities. Although, these opportunities did not include pursuing a college education; they’ve come to value and acknowledge the importance of one. Therefore, from a young age they’ve made sure to push my brother and I to pursue a college education. Even though most of my life I have been taught to value my education; I often find myself becoming easily overwhelmed by it. Therefore, at the age of 14 I decided to learn guitar as a way to cope with my overwhelming thoughts and anxiety. Ever since, I have been expanding on my musical abilities and hope to pursue a career in it.

I hope to be able to expand my knowledge on visual texts and hopefully change my views on how I perceive comics in this class. I have always preferred novels over comics and my perception on comics is influenced by the negative connotations it holds by the majority of people. I want to be able to understand them and treat them equally as I would any novel. Furthermore, my favorite types of visual texts are primarily films. Some of my favorite films include Requiem for a Dream, Room, Clockwork Orange, Trainspotting, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Lastly, my favorite educational site is SparkNotes. Often times, there are instances in a novel where I get lost and need a simplified explanation or overview for what I just read. This makes it easier for me to read and not have to reread the same section multiple times.

Ultimately, I am looking forward to this semester and hope to expand my knowledge on visual texts.
