Why did you enter this storytelling contest?
I am passionate about stories, stories of all sorts. I enjoy listening to them, I love how the mind is able to put images to words, I think it’s magical. I was inspired to enter the competition because I want to keep the magic going!
What does storytelling mean to you?
It means the sharing of experience or imagination, it means inviting people into experiencing something powerful, words are so powerful, growing up I’ve always been told that they can make and break, I believe that. I believe that the world as we know it revolves around words…around stories.
Why did you tell this story?
I chose it because I initially felt awful in the moment of experiencing it, later when I got home, I decided that I’d put all of that to good use, that maybe something because came come out of my embarrassment.
