Tell me about yourself…
This is your first assignment and someday soon it will most likely be the question an admissions officer or an employer asks you during an interview. I want you to share one interesting fact about yourself. This can be a
- a short story;
- an amazing experience;
- a passion.
Regardless of the content, I would like you to present this vignette in a unique way. You have access to a variety of tools, a Mac lab, an iPad, and various applications. I am not limiting you to any specific tool, nor am I looking for a text heavy, bulleted PowerPoint.
Think about your audience and what you find entertaining. How can you share your story in an interesting, unique way?
- Employ your creative energy – what will you do to set yourself aside from the rest. Stand out!
- Keep it concise – Don’t tell your entire life story. This is not a presidential convention. Simply present a small piece of something unique about you.
- Present, don’t read – Don’t rely entirely on the presentation medium to tell your story i.e. Don’t read directly from a PowerPoint. Own it, and understand it. Remember, it’s your story, you should know it.
