Through videos, blogs, posters, small group meetings, community outreach, and presentations, our UAlbany Project MyStory bloggers their experiences – the good and the bad; the ugly and the beautiful. Check us out every Monday, after 12 pm, for MyStory Mondays, when we share the latest posts.
Pulled Back to Move Forward
My name is Kerry DeBruce and I am a graduate student in the Special Education & Literacy II Program. I started my journey here at UAlbany in Fall 2013, as a freshmen and have grown so much throughout my time here. Each year I spent here at UAlbany, I became more involved and gained stronger leadership skills. I became a blogger for Project MyStory this past spring semester, to talk about how I’ve moved forward after each loss I’ve experienced. I’m sure that as a graduate student, I will encounter other kinds of losses and I want to bring light to the things that we sometimes don’t talk about as students, the things that affect us the most—things like mental health, asking for help, and more. I also hope to contribute helping students in their junior and senior year start thinking about their post graduate plans, especially those applying to grad schools. I want to continue being a resource and I want my readers to know that someone understands what they are going through during this pivotal time in their life.
