You are probably familiar with "About Me" pages now. Your "About Me" webpage on your weebly site must be different. It can't be that same ol' boring paragraph about how you go to John Jay College and plan to be a lawyer, forensic scientist, forensic psychologist, or, for The Bold and the Beautiful, Olivia Benson from "Law & Order: SVU."
On this "About Me" page, you will also highlight all of the digital projects that you have done so far: links and images to your ePortfolio, any video projects you have done, etc. The page should look and feel like a candy store of a multimedia YOU!
