Why did you enter this storytelling contest?
I’ve finally decided to figure out who I’d like to be on the inside.
What does storytelling mean to you?
Storytelling to me means the ability to transfer experiences and share humanity with strangers. It means connection.
Why did you tell this story?
It’s a story I’ve never told and seemed like a good place to start excavating myself. I know this is a common experience, but as a child, I thought it was standard and when I realized it wasn’t, that all families weren’t like ours, it seems strange, but my identity collapsed. I’d like to share those parts so that there are fewer dark corners for people like me to get lost in. – Chantelle
