From the feedback I was given, some common patterns of writing-related issues in my writing are improper citation in the references page and lack of specificity and concrete examples. These are things I have struggled with in the past, but have been working on recently. For the future and my next draft, I will try to engage with the text I am using more and include two relevant quotes/examples for the thing I am trying to prove. I will also proofread my reference page before I turn in work. I usually just let a website generate my reference page and never look over it however, a reference page is just as important as the essay so I will be more diligent.
The person’s social media presence I chose to analysis is the new and upcoming rapper, Dababy. Taking a look at his Instagram it appears that he is very confident and braggadocious. In his bio on Instagram, he presumptuously refers to himself as a “living legend”. One can assume that he is confident in his talents as a rapper. In his videos and pictures that he posts, there are three different factors that are present in each one or all of them. One, he wears very extravagant and expensive jewelry and a diamond-encrusted grill. This alludes to the fact that he cares about his appearance and has money. An example of this is a picture he posted of him holding money in front of his face while wearing what appears to be very expensive jewelry and clothing. Two, he posts videos of him rapping and shows the crowd, who appears to be very engaged; or he promotes his achievements and projects he has coming out. This, again only further exemplifies his confidence in his talent as a rapper. The third factor is the goofy posts that show him as a very approachable and friendly person. Dababy has an overall good mix of these three factors that show him as a well rounded, personable, person. https://www.instagram.com/dababy/?hl=ens
