Capstone #1 – Choosing a Topic

As capstone is just starting to approach I have been more prepared and more ready than ever. I had this amazing idea from last year or so I thought. I had this idea in my pocket and ready, for over 15 months now. I had my interview ready and I just needed a site visit which would be easy. This is how my idea started… we had just got back from a Broadway show that my mom’s college friend produced. As soon as we got into the cab to leave my mom received a text from the producer Mark. He said, “why didn’t you tell me your coming, I would’ve brought you backstage!” My head filled with ideas. “Oh, capstone is coming up, maybe just maybe Producer Mark could hook me up with an interview.” I thought. Then, Mrs. Cooper said that you shouldn’t do a topic that is easy and your not passionate about. Then I thought, but I am really passionate about Broadway? Hopefully she knows that. I decided, singing: check, I am passionate about it. Dancing: check, passionate about it. Acting/performing: check, I am very passionate about this.

And so I decided Broadway is a perfect topic for me. I have the connections and passion.

Social Issues

They are some terrible social issues. Personally, I can’t relate to much of them which could be a great thing. The two that hits closest to home are bullying, and poverty. As a kid, bullying is what relates most to me though I don’t get bullied or take part in it. But just thinking about it makes my skin crawl. I am so lucky to be fortunate enough but some people are not which makes me very sad. These social issues makes me sad and persuades me to take part of any thing to stop them.

Bullying is an act where a powerful person picks on the weaker. They start off by embarrassing the weak and hurting them. It is not fair and is only benefiting the bully. The bullies need that attention and embarrassment to feed off of. It is just an horrible act that needs to be stopped and something done about it. As I walk into the city and see the poor homeless people my heart aches for them. And I just want to help.

Unfortunately, these problems are still occurring today. And we need to fix them and make a difference. Although, it is still happening we need to power through it.
