What’s Your Story 

Who you are matters! Writing and telling your story/stories takes courage. Learning about yourself requires vulnerability and honesty as you might discover secrets, stereotypes, values, inequities, bullying, new family history, celebrations, biases, privileges, and traditions.

Telling and owning your story/stories can be extremely empowering and many times gives voice to those who may have been silenced or excluded.  60sec Truths stories leave individuals with key concept to focus on their own lives, lessons, and experiences.
