Opening Chapel Talk: It’s Time to Be Extra Kind
I have always wanted to give a chapel talk, so when the news came that I would undoubtedly be doing my chapel talk online, I was shaken. The idea of just sitting on Zoom and doing it made me tear up. Nevertheless, I still wanted it to be something meaningful that could set the tone for the year. I chose to do what suited me best and pre-record it in a way that I could simply layer on music and make it genuine. Sometime throughout summer, I thought: “Animations are sick…” so I chose to animate my story. Chapel is meant to bring people together, and we are in a situation where that seems unimaginable. I wanted to do something that shows that even when we are apart, we can still feel like we are together.
