For my project, I decided to write and record a couple of songs. I had written songs prior, both by myself and with friends, but I wanted to take it more seriously, and the Class 8 Project seemed like a perfect opportunity.
Some people are able to express themselves through visual art, public speaking, hobbies, writing etc. But for me, songwriting is how I share my personal experiences. To write songs is so freeing because I can create a whole mood with the music itself and then sing whatever I feel is right.
It was hard writing songs knowing that people will hear them, and I'll admit in the beginning the thought scared me. To write something personal and show others, feels really vulnerable and it can be confronting when people comment on it, for it's part of you. I've learnt to accept that now though as I want to share my music.
