Okeedokee my platform is in process. I am still not quite sure what having a platform is all about - but here I go!
My master's program focused on creating a public platform for yourself. Since then I've realized that creating a public platform is akin to dubbing yourself an expert. It's basically self-publicity for someone who isn't famous and does not have a publicist. This is how vloggers get famous. My platform served its purpose in getting me in to the school of my choice to do doctoral research. It also allowed me to finish up one phase of my life - advocacy - and begin to move toward encouraging political and legislative action in postvention. It's a sort of road map of where I have been and where I am going.
