When I was trying to figure out what story to do, I was definitely feeling stressed about it.  I wasn’t sure that I was technologically savvy enough to pull something like this off.  I finally decided on my story and the platform I would use, but I was still worried.  As I started, I quickly realized how user friendly Adobe Spark is, and was actually enjoying putting everything together.  It was fun to go through old photos and make everything come together.  This was definitely a bit outside of my comfort zone, but I’m really glad I had the opportunity to do this.

I highly recommend viewing the video prior to reading the script.  I hope you Enjoy it!


The setting for my story is Long Island, New York.  The video contains an assortment of texts, photos, and video that represents my life over the past 30 years.


The video is accompanied by the song “100 Years” performed by Five For Fighting. Purchased through iTunes.


I used my laptop to create the video and I chose to use Adobe Spark Video to do my digital story.
