Storytelling is amazing. It brings the excitement to what you are trying to pass over to the next person, like back in the days when elders would be sitting around a fire and sharing wisdom in the form of stories.
what does storytelling mean to you?
I believe that when something comes your way, it is meant for you to take shot. I believe this will be my greatest opportunity to tell my story. Listening to someone else’s story has made a huge impact in my life. I was a drug addict and alcoholic and I now can do something now to make a difference in someone else’s life. We all can learn from each other if we take the time to listen.
The story I chose to tell outlines that we all live in this beautiful world where struggles are real. One smile can make a difference so let it be that no matter how hard things are we can get through if we don’t give up. Its all in the mind. Bob Marley made music to make a difference a story is one way to do that so let it be that this is my way I’ve come from hardship been on the streets taken drugs drank etc. I’m still kicking and I want the world to push and make a difference. We all can if we come together.
