Senior Keystone Project: The Importance of Self Reflection

Keystone Presentation Date: Fri., June 2, 12:55-2:00 pm

For my Keystone, I interviewed different types of people, asking them to reflect on how their past experiences shaped who they are today and what life lessons they have learned, along with what morals and principles they have taken on.

For my primary mode, I interviewed and recorded a conversation with a Russian immigrant, a teacher, a student, and a veteran, and created a presentation in which I transcribed certain parts from my recordings and synched the audio to them. For my secondary mode, I wrote a personal essay, answering the same questions I asked the people in my interview, and analyze the importance of self-reflection.
