One of the things that most surprised me in the talks about media was just overall going more in depth about what happens in the media in the MENA region. It has shown how I personally may be taking the media freedoms I have for granted. In the MENA region there is very little access in some area or at certain points in time and I personally do not experience that, my relationship with media has changed in a more appreciative way, I do not have to work around censorships and I can get more information about various topics without having to worry much about if it is censored or allowed. I am able to be exposed to more news stories which is something that not everyone in the world is able to be exposed to.
