MyStory Mondays are Back Again!


MyStory Mondays is a weekly digest of our latest posts.

Our UAlbany MyStory Bloggers share their lives with you to help you to stay focused on your goals, to remind and inform you about the many supports that we have on campus to help you succeed, and to let you know that, whatever you are going through, you are not alone. 

“Even though I always tried, I had no confidence in my own abilities. I was convinced that my brain was broken.”  – Heather M.


Heather’s blog series, One Life’s Potential, addresses the negative voices that we, sometimes, allow to build a nest in our heads, hindering us from doing our best. She urges us not to let a garbage pile of negativity blind us to our true potential. Click here to check out her latest post.


Liz is completing her degree in abstentia and will graduate in May. Although she is not with us, physically, Liz has left us several posts to share. Her theme was Homebody for Everybody, in which she gave us a glimpse of her life as a very introverted, yet highly involved person. In her latest installment, she gives five suggestions on how to maintain long-distance relationships and on how to let them go. Click here to read more.

kerry-debruceKerry graduated last May, and is currently a graduate student at UAlbany. Last spring, her blog series, Pulled Back to Move Forward, focused on grief, loss, healing, and self-care. After reading some of her series, several students made the decision to seek help in addressing their diverse losses. Words have power.

This week, Kerry writes about how difficult it was to decide on what to do after graduation, and how she, eventually came to the best decision for her. Check out her latest piece here.


Simonti and Anik are both writing separate pieces under the same theme, “Resolutionary.”  Using the idea of making New Year’s resolutions, they focus on how the pressure to change your habits, attitude, or your heart, can be a significant hurdle. They share their experiences in how they have made changes that have allowed them to succeed and to grow.  Click here to see how, you too can become “resolutionary!”


Kayla’s series, Let God take the Wheel, focuses on how she has learned to be less of a perfectionist so that she can appreciate where she is in the here and now. This is her final year here and she has much to say about letting go. Click here to check out her latest post.

Established in March 2015, Project MyStory is a community building effort to help students better acclimate to UAlbany and to work more effectively toward their goals. We began in UAlbany’s Academic Support Center (ASC), where you will see many of the posters featured above. We are now co-housed in ASC and in the Center for International Education and Global Strategy (CIEGS).
