This week we examined the voyages that we have each taken in the #WalkMyWorld project…and possibly in our own lives. We considered the role of heroes and anti-heroes in our cultures. Each of us developed a hero, or anti-hero based on what we have learned in the process of our journeys.
Capturing the heroes in our lives
Throughout this learning event, there have been a ton of awesome pieces shared that are equal parts reflective and empowering. Usually in these reflective pieces in each learning event, I try to synthesize the major themes across the materials shared in the week.
This week I would rather embed the tweets below and let the work speak for itself. The tweets I’m sharing are by no means a representative sample of the work shared in the learning event. I grabbed and shared pieces that spoke to me.

The last piece I’d like to share is an awesome lip sync video from Melvina Kurashige (@mkurashige). I’m hoping that she and her set of heroes put together a “behind the scenes” post showing the process used.

Thank you to everyone for connecting and reflecting this week, and throughout the project. It’s been a lot of fun seeing how everyone responds to the prompts with their own content and work. The shared content is really moving, and it often sticks to me for a couple of days. Thanks again.
