I had never heard of Photovoice or voice-over Powerpoint Presentations before Residency. In hindsight, I had seen PowerPoint Presentations with audio, but did not know what they were called or how to create one. When I read Budig et al. (2018), regarding the purpose of Photovoice, I loved the idea. It fit right in line with my Critical Theoretical notions. The idea of creating a visual product in order create change was exciting and daunting. My first attempt utilized a “voice” that I was not comfortable with. Utilizing my newly developing “reflective practitioner” skills, I realized that my “voice” has been stifled for a long time and that it was time to start “finding my voice”. I started practicing this, shortly thereafter.
