I think writing this Portrait was rather easy in terms of sharing my experiences and feelings. The word I chose is deeply rooted in the discourse community I’m apart of, so I found it easy to talk about. But because of this, my portrait felt like a whole diary page, and I don’t know if that’s exactly a good thing. What I wish to improve upon in my portrait is to include different experiences from other people and a bit more research to solidify the explanation of my “word”. When doing the workshop, I felt reassured that my point came across, but despite this, I feel like I can further improve this piece. I’ll possibly look over the structure of my portrait, and see which sections need more information or more varied personal experiences.
It’s been a difficult year for us, for the groups we belong to, so let’s write about it!
I’m Jackie Blain, and you can find me on our Slack workspace or via email DBlain@citytech.cuny.edu.
