What is a “public”? Which publics are you a member of? How did you choose to become a member of those publics? (Choose and discuss at least three.)
A public is a group or groups that you as an individual have chosen to be a part of.
Lady Fire Basketball- I am a member of the Lady Fire Basketball Team. I have been a part of the team since my freshman year, which would be three years now. I am a captain/leader this year as well. I love being a part of something that has so much influence on girl’s lives, a campus, and on a community. Sadly this may be my last year of playing, but I know what I learned from being on the team will not soon be forgotten.
Southeastern University- Since I attend school here in Lakeland , I am a part of this campus. I have loved getting to know students and professor’s walking around and just being a part of such a great group of people.
ASCAP (THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF COMPOSERS, AUTHORS AND PUBLISHERS)- I am also a member of ASCAP. ASCAP is for published composers that have copyrighted their music, after that it can be used for movies, television, etc. I have been a singer/songwriter since I was 12. I recently became published for a song that I sang and wrote. It was used on an international television show called TheDrivetv. In order to have my music used on the series I had to join ASCAP. I hope to write more, but for now I am content knowing that I have the ability to put my music out there to be heard.
