The most important lesson I learnt as a GNML student was that no matter who you are ,you can make an impact on your community.Change starts with one person at a time.If you have the will,the tool(social media),the passion and drive,you can do it.
Once I begun to enjoy being a student of the GNML program,numerous challenges started flooding.I sincerely think the greatest challenge I faced was accountability,being accountable for every thing I submitted or every post I put on facebook,twitter,youtube just to mention a few.I constantly strived to put forth my best efforts to accurately and constructively relay information on the social media tools.
I got into the Global New Media Lab classroom as an exchange student.At first,I had doubts on how the program would be and if it was worth my time.Over the past few months,I have gained tremendous insights on how the social media works as a tool for change.The most rewarding experiance I had was the a feeling I got after every lesson and activity. I felt better equiped to make an impact in my community using social media.
