Don't Hide Behind The Screen

Two hundred and twenty-three live streams.

A total of four thousand four hundred and sixty minutes.

Or seventy four hours.

Equivalent of about 3 days.

Why I chose to live stream daily

It started as a project to challenge myself.

To do one thing every day and to become better at it.

Even my mentor thought it’s hard.

But I did it anyways.

I chose to live stream because:

  • It’s hard. Am I sick or what? I like to take on challenge projects. I like to do things others find it difficult. I like a good challenge.
  • It’s the real me. I don’t want to hide behind the screen typing away. I want to show the real me, with all my flaws and imperfections.
  • It’s about showmanship. I love the stage. I’m one of those who never experienced being afraid of public speaking. In fact I love it.

If the internet is the world

Then YouTube is my stage.
