Animated Cartoon 🎨

Today in class, we received our new assignment which appears to be easy and fun. 
Our creativity will be expressed through making a conversation about anything we have a passion or strong interest in. I have many ideas at this moment that I am not sure which one to pick. 

I enjoy cooking and nutrition. Most likely I will do a dialogue on either topic. 

We will have a 2 person dialogue using XtraNormal
I took the time to look at some done and this one

Bringing stories together from all over using STORIFY

Today in class we learned to used Storify, this is a very unique site to link up stories from all over.

Are group assignment was to find different stories and views on the role of women on combat.

historic change and was recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, overturns a 1994 rule prohibiting women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units.

It is very interesting what people have to say, Marine Captain Katie Petronio says "women shouldn't be in infantry." 

 "I am not blind to the fact that females play a key role in countering the gender and cultural barriers we are facing at war, and we do have a place in combat operations" Petronio said. 

While working on this assignment we can gather videos from YouTube, pictures from Instagram and other popular sites. 

Women on the frontline is my link for my Storify account, check it out and let me know what you think.
