Well, it's over. We Capstone kids gave our big presentations last Monday. This semester flew by! Our graduation is in 12 short days.
Everyone really did such a fantastic job. I'm so proud of our capstone class - I really think that we're in a league of our own. The past four years have been crazy, but fun...especially with the six people I shared the spotlight with last Monday.
The bulk of my presentation concerned the three e-portfolios I put together. I did one for radio news, one for media relations, and one for print journalism. For my presentation, I combined the three and added a bit of the television work I did back in the day. I thought it went pretty well. I was able to show my creativity as well as many of the projects I've done.
As far as what I could have done differently, I wish I would have been a little more loose. A lot of the presentations were so funny and laid-back, and I felt really uptight and serious. I think it was because I was so nervous. I don't usually get that way when I'm speaking in public. I'm blaming my family!
I also felt that I flew through the different elements of my presentation because of time constraints. I wish I would have shortened my intro and conclusion and showed a little more of my experience.
Overall, I was happy with how everything went. Although I'm excited about moving on to the next chapter of my life (even though I have no clue what it will be like!), I'm really going to miss the good times I had with the broadcasting department at WC. I want to wish all of my fellow capstoners the best of luck!
