Summer '16 Fellow: Ariel Matthews

About Ariel

I attend Medgar Evers College, where I major in mass communications. I plan to transfer to Brooklyn College next year to pursue a bachelor’s degree and major in journalism. I love listening to music and going on adventures with my friends. I’m a passionate music lover and sucker for comedies and romantic movies. I plan to be a music journalist in the future. 

Ariel's Project: The Medium is the Message

The aim of my project was to explore different perspectives on the influence of social media. Through interviews with my peers I explored how social media affects self-esteem and group dynamics. I also explored how it will affect future generations.
