Originality in Appearance

​   Haji and Marley has a very different and unique style of clothing that makes them original. They wear exciting and creative clothing and hairstyles to be out of the social norm of appearance. Their originality has changed over time and will continue to change. Their styles and surrounding influences have affected their lives and how they portray themselves to the world.

Reflection :  

From the project of crossing boundaries I learned that people are influenced by society and influenced on how things should be other than how you want it to be. As I was interviewing Haji and Marley I learned what influences their unique style which to me is cool because they both have different reasons on why they dress differently to stray away from trends. Crossing boundaries is a way for people to be different and a way for people to stress their originality. In my topic of crossing boundaries the cause is people following the same trends and the affect would be people straying from the trends. The cost could be the loss of popularity or even respect but you gain you individualism and your own self respect. I really didn't learn anything about myself during this process but if I were to take a lesson out of it it would be to just be yourself and do what you feel is right and dress for you and not anyone else. I think I got good information from the interviews that really showed off my topic. My interviews were my strength in this whole process, I felt like I made good questions to reflect on my topic. My weakness would just be the editing of the audio for smooth transitions but I did what I was capable of doing. This project made me think of people around the world who are going through the same thing and that is trying to find that thing that makes them original.
