I’m Kathy and this is my digital story! I have created this blog for the sole purpose of a Digital Storytelling class that I am taking at SUNY Empire State College.  I am a return student studying Communications & Media.  Having only an associates degree, I made the decision to return to college later in life for a few reasons.  One is, the typical story, in order to have more advancement opportunities at work.  Another is, I work at a local community college and I help students with their transfer process to four year colleges after gaining their associates degree, I figured it was time I do this for myself!  Lastly, I have three children that have all gone to college, with my youngest being a college senior.  Watching my kids succeed in their education journeys and constantly advising students to complete their education, along with working beside many, very well educated colleagues, inspired me to finally pursue my degree. I am happy to say, I will be completing my Bachelors degree at the end of the fall semester.  I hope you enjoy my blog!
