Tell us a bit about yourself?
I am a Nursery Nurse, and have worked with children of all ages and abilities for over 16 years.
I like to consider myself as a 'young' 42 year old!
I live in Neath, near the town centre and am married with children.
What are you currently doing?
I am currently employed with a private care company, looking after adults and children who have profound physical, intellectual and behavioural difficulties and disabilities.
What story did you have to tell?
My story is about my son Christopher. It is, in a way, a tribute to his bravery and positive outlook when faced with a life threatening disease, cancer, at the age of nine. He passed away, aged 12, and left a huge gaping hole in our family, but not in our hearts.
I chose to tell this particular story because it's about a very meaningful and poignant conversation that we had together during his illness.
Having lost my son, I am comforted by the fact that he was so adamant and positive about what happens to a person when they die.
As I said in my story, his words give me hope.
How did you find the whole digital storytelling workshop experience?
As someone who has always had an interest in video/photography and editing, I found it to be a great learning experience.
It has inspired me and given me the confidence to experiment further and explore the possibilities and capabilities of my own home computer.
