Without Naruto, I don’t know what other shenanigans I would’ve done in order for me to express my imaginations.

    In class we watched “The Princess Bride,” a movie that showed all the steps of the hero’s journey cycle, and looked at different types of archetypes as well. Let alone that, I created my characters for the story I illustrated on a comic strip by doing my research on different archetypes and choosing the accurate one for each character. The hero’s journey project allowed me to think outside the box and come up with a short story over a boy band that leaves me speechless. The story embraced my creativity by being vibrant and amusing in each box I produced. Crediting this assignment, I would say it has opened my eyes in noticing what the hero’s journey and the different archetypes for books and movies…

    Before arriving at college, I had always taken yearlong English classes, which had a focus on a certain topic.
