Digital story telling is used as a way for everyday people to share their stories through digital tools. Individuals use this as a way of presenting ideas to others. These stories can also be interactive. There are seven elements that make up a digital story:
- Point of View
- Dramatic question
- Emotional Content
Listed below are my just a few of my life experiences that are meaningful to me. I’m only 29, so I’m sure there will be more to come.
- Brunch with my girls
- CEO Millionaires Boot camp
- Thanksgiving 2016 : Turkey Perfection
- LA trip
- Annual trip to the Fair
- Hanging with my big sister as an adult
- Runyon Canyon
- Beach is my happy place
- My grandma passing from lung cancer
- Being an Aunt
Out of this list I have chosen five of them in particular that have the potential to being created into a digital story.
Brunch With My Girls
This is a monthly occasion where five other women and myself get together and enjoy each others company. We like to meet in the city at a quaint location and catch up on our lives. We try not to gossip to much but we do. We more so like to converse about what the next big moves. And of course we relax and indulge mimosas and wine and just have a good time. This quality time mean a lot to me its great to be able to have such a bond with other like-minded individuals.
CEO Millionaires Boot Camp
CEO Millionaires Boot-Camp was an event that I worked for. Initially I attended a previous event hosted by 2 Chainz manager. And was invited to be apart of the next event. Which was unheard of and never done before. It was advertised on all media platforms radio, IG, FB, Twitter etc. I was able to learn so much and create connections with a group of people that I will always be apart of.
This trip was everything. First time on the West Coast. First time in LA. And once again with a group of people that has become family. I work as an executive assistant to an A&R who owns his own management company. I was able to meet and rub shoulders with elite people in the entertainment industry. I was able to do some sight seeing.
Quality Time with Big Sister
My sister and I were able to meet up recently during my stay in Cleveland, OH. She is 10 yrs older than I, and also my half sister. We just share the same dad. Usually we communicate through social media. Bu we were able to hang out and talk and chill. And we found out that even though we are so far apart we are very similar. We love the same things, have the same hobby, and share the same visions. This experience meant everything to me.
Beach is My Happy Place
The beach. Its my safe haven, my calm place. It is just so relaxing. I could lay there in the sand all day. And the aroma of the ocean is so soothing, I have so many memories being at the beach. One memory in particular would be my firt trip ever without my mom after I graduated with my first real boyfriend. I was 18 at the time. That was just a fun time. And even a fun year for me.
