Kafer 1 Karl Kafer Westerfield English 101 10/2/2018 Reflection Letter: Essay 2 At the start of the drafting process during class when mapping out my ideas one huge theme stuck out to me, Music! At, first I was writing about how music was perceived in todays world and how the ever-changing market created more and more artists. As we finished without first exercise I kept asking myself how was this related to me? I came back with mental health in the music community today, and the many early deaths that have occurred alone this year. Especially, my good friend Darian’s untimely death. His huge interest in life was the music that he made, and now since he has passed I can’t see him anymore, but he still lives on in the music that he made and the memories that me and him had created together. His death has even motivated me to pursue a career in the music business, so hopefully I can give a kid a chance to really put the music that defines him into a living and save them from the fate that my friend had suffered. So, I chose to merge these two big parts of my life into this essay. It was quite difficult for me to write at times due to its huge personal conflicts I still have with this issue, but I felt it was a strong topic that I could engage and write about. In this essay I am most confident about my use outside sources to help back the point that I was trying to make. When writing about how Music can help a person’s mental health I found lots of references to this very issue in the hip-hop community and the new studies surrounding music therapy. While I didn’t delve immensely into each of the topics because my focus was how music and mental health had been very relevant in my own life. Whether it was dealing with my own depression as an adolescent or how my dear friend had dealt with his own, these supporting studies and back up from artists give validity to the points that I am trying to bring across. The quote from Diddy felt most relevant to my essay as unlike the research it relies on a lot of personal experience with making music and it therapeutically help them rather than just being some statistic. One thing about writing this essay was that it was such a personal trauma that had happened to me recently. I still am coping with this event to this day, it effects a lot of my everyday decisions and even changed the way I view life and world immensely. I am unconfident

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
