This week on OU Create is all about visiting new places and reflecting on our past experiences. Our students have been through challenging situations and they have decided to share them with the entire community, with hopes that their experiences may give someone the courage to triumph in theirs. So don’t be scared to feel as you read the Best of OU Create 7/23 – 7/29!
And now for the roundup…
In George’s post, he talks about his experience studying in Arezzo, Italy. Surrounded by breathtaking views like the old Medici Fortress and the fascinating everyday life, he expresses his joy for being able to hone his photography skills. Out of 10,000 photos, below is George’s favorite.
Spencer gives us more about new experiences in his post as he talks about his study abroad experience in OU Puebla, Mexico. He is grateful to OU College of International Studies for giving him the opportunity to not only taste great food and witness the live performance of “Les Miserables” but to do these things with newly made friends.
Being a mother is not an easy task, neither is being a student. Now imagine being both like Ashton. Taking care of 7 kids and tackling homework and exams seem impossible but in her post, she talks about how she balances both responsibilities whilst finding time to maintain her blog on OU Create.
On an emotional note, Sarah’s post is a letter to her high school self. By talking to her little self and her insecurities, she recognizes how far she has come and how far she needs to go. Sarah’s letter demonstrates the importance of reflecting on one’s past in order to appreciate the present and look forward to the future.
If you love art and you live in Norman, Oklahoma, Destiny’s post is for you. She talks about a non-profit community center and art gallery called Resonator. They feature works and showcases from notable artists and musicians including OU alumnus, Alicia Smith. Below is their Facebook page.
And that’s all for now! Keep writing posts, and stay tuned for the next Best of OU Create roundup!
