Tyreek Speedwell: My Youtube Channel
For my capstone, my goal is to expand my passion of having fun with sports across social platforms/media. I made a Youtube channel and will be uploading videos. In each video, my peers and I will play sports games/challenge. The challenges will definitely showcase our humorous personalities as we perform theses games/challenges. They also help me make the edits to ensure that the videos are even more entertaining. Also, I will use social media such as my instagram account and informing others to post shoutouts on their social media accounts in order to promote the Youtube channel to get more viewers to watch my content. I’ve learned from this experience especially that it takes practice to get the videos the way I want to please the viewers who will like them. I’m very hopeful that the process of expanding this Youtube is a huge success for me in the long run since it is something I want to personally do even after high school.
