I’ll provide a short personal introduction for you.
Purpose of the assignment:
This is a chance to think about and answer questions about who you are and how we communicate. Your identity is multifaceted and intersectional so this essay should cover different facets of your identity. You should choose at least three aspects of your identity to explore. This could be any of the identities we covered in class or others you might want to include. This could include your gender, race, nationality, ability, sexual identity, ethnicity, religion- anything that is part of who you are. This could also include the roles we play such as sister, employee, student, volunteer, etc. Exploring your own life thoroughly helps you understand the impact of people and experiences in forming your identity and our interpersonal communication. This essay should tell the reader how you view yourself as well as how your identities have shaped the way you view the world and how others see you.
This essay should have five parts including an well-developed introduction that tell us about you and the identities you will be exploring, one paragraph for each of the four identities you will be discussing and a conclusion that should highlight what you have learned or discovered about yourself from this experience. This assignment should be 3-4 double spaced pages. Use 12 point Times New Roman font.
