I like the instagram star because she is very pretty. She always introduces the Korean make up product, and she has her own brand. The photo she posts online were attractive with a  delicate makeup on her. She also had a Youtube channel to teach people who wanted to as pretty as her. She once teach people how to do Tylor Swift’ make up and she did a wonderful job on it. It is hard for an Asian to look like an American due to the difference of genes, but she taught me that everything is possible if you give it a try. I think she use logos and ethos appealing very well.

Google already provided the background information for us, and we can make our own opinions about those news or events. It basically claims people how much we depend on Google. In the video, they use a lot of powerful pictures and short video to support their claim . They showed the example of what people had search in 2017. It makes people feel like involved. They use pathos appealing during the video a lot, such as the picture of refugee and the natural disaster.

By reading my classmate, Mandy’s response, there are some similar points between my response and hers. the first point we had in common is that we both mention about that the work is not only required us to use text and visual to tell a essay, but also, we need to including sounds and images to express our idea. Second point is that we both agree with that it is important to make sure that the audiences can receive the information we tried to provide when we put all the different sounds, images and text in the video. We should always check wether the video is easy for the audiences to follow or not.
