I’m Celeste Valdivia, a sixteen years old. I am part of YASA, a program that provides students like me a platform to build leadership skills and to expand my perspective of current issues in our global community. As a sub-assignment for this program we were given the opportunity to compose a blog of our own about any subject we were inspired to talk about.
After much thinking, I have decided that the theme for my blog would be music. I choose it not only because of its versatility, but also because I find it quite interesting how and why music connects with us. That is why I am aiming to analyze the workings of music and its effects on our societies, and even just the individual. This will be done by revisiting the change and growth in history, analyzing my peers and communities through sociological research, and through personal reviews of cool songs and artists.
