Blog It Forward-Kathleen Dewan

If you have not heard, last year Moshe Naveh created the Blog it Forward Challenge.  Moshe created the challenge so individuals on SCN would “get to know our

community members like we’ve never known them before.” Recently, I participated in a social course given by Jason Cao. Jason has passed the challenge on to the participants in his BIF post. Further, a fellow participant Tim Hoebeek challenged me in his BIF post

First, let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Kathleen Dewan, but I go by the name Katie. I am a Presales Communications Intern and specifically work with Design Thinking with SAP. I work out of Newtown Square and love everything I am learning during my time here.

I have chosen to answer one question from Jason’s challenge, one question from Tim’s challenge, and one question they both shared.

1.      1. What inspires you?

2.      2. What is the most fun thing you ever experienced?

3.      3. If you could be a superhero, who would you be?

What inspires me?

Something that inspires me is traveling. I absolutely love learning about new cultures, different lifestyles, and seeing the world. I have been to a select few places such as Mexico, Ireland, and England, but I definitely have aspirations to see France, Australia, Italy, Greece, Spain and many more parts of the world.


What is the most fun thing I have ever experienced?

I absolutely love anything on the water. I love to go water skiing, jet skiing, tubing, sailing, paragliding, and fishing. You name it-I like it! I am also a big fan of hiking.  I look forward to the opportunities when I get to do these activities as they are my favorite thing to do. The picture below was taken last summer when I went on a hiking trip with my friend in New Hampshire. (I am on the right)


If I could be a superhero, who would I be?

First off, let me say that I have always disliked superhero movies, etc. I have been dragged to a few movies such as Captain America and Batman. Last week somehow I ended up seeing Iron Man 3 (I had not even seen the first two Iron Mans). I must say that despite my hesitation, I did enjoy the movie. The superhero Iron Man made me laugh, and his helper Jarvis seems like he would be very helpful in my day to day life.


Blog It Forward

The Blog It Forward Challenge is a fun way to get to know other people in the community. If you have not taken the challenge yet I encourage you to do so! Simply go to the Blog It Forward Chain to find out how to get started! 

To keep the chain going I want to challenge Nicolle Gurule Sternberger and Mike Trusio to BIF!


1.       If you were given by your work a full day every week to do whatever you feel like, what would it be?

2.       What inspires you?

3.       Share a fun fact/story about yourself that people don’t know.

      I fully agree, travelling and hiking can indeed be very inspiring, great views (nice photo!) and the time to think freely. It's hard not to like that 😉

      Hi Katie,

      Thanks for joining BIF, and for sharing such beautiful pictures!

      I'd agree a "Jarvis" would definitely be welcomed in my world! 🙂 FYI, in case you're looking for any suggestions on superhero to be, here's the Superhero Quiz you might take.

      Thank you Jason!

      I received my I Blogged badge yesterday, so I was pretty excited.

      Thank you also for the quiz-it told me I was Supergirl. I have not ever heard of her before, but I'll take it! 😉

      Best Regards,
