My name is Kathleen Elizabeth Smith. I am finally a college graduate! For three years I attended Delaware County Community College and then for three more years I attended the School of Media & Communications at Temple University. It's been a long journey and I know it is going to be odd not having school as a constant in my life, but I'm ready to get out into the world and start making a difference.

My Major at Temple University was Advertising. Many people assume I fell in love with advertising because of the TV show Mad Men. That's just not true. I didn't even know it existed until I was already engrossed. I had an adjunct professor at Delaware County Community College, his name was Albert Kendro, and he terrified me. He was direct and he expected a lot from you. I realized that advertising pushed me and I needed to be pushed in order to achieve greatness. The more you tell me I can't do something, the better I do. I thrive under pressure and that's all advertising is, PRESSURE! Without him I have no clue what I would be doing right now.

My love for advertising and design was reinforced by another adjunct professor, Stefania Patrizio, at Temple University. She gave us assignments we thought would be impossible to complete. She had us dig extremely deep for ideas and once we found one that was "okay," it still wasn't good enough because ewe had to "love it" on top of that. She could be a pain in the ass but she can push you right into a great idea, and I loved that!

Now I'm graduating and I'm terrified again. Where will I end up, what will the industry do with me. Luckily I have my wonderful internship at 4wholeness.com, a website for breast cancer support. The founders Kevin Black and Susan Hunter push me to learn more everyday, and they've pushed me into my new love Digital Media. I am contemplating going for a Master of Science Degree at Temple University in Digital Innovation in Marketing. I don't know where the world will take me, but I am excited to get involved with new opportunities and see what they inspire me to do next.
