Thank you to all of our storytellers, everyone who attended, and the CASL crew for making this experience happen. Next stop CASL HS!

Congratulations to USD Changemaker Hub on yet another amazing My Story. This year they reimagined what this event could be, took steps to adapt it to their campus needs, and built connections between students that make their community stronger. This is what My Story is all about!

Thank you to all of our inspiring storytellers that expressed such vulnerability to us last night at My Story, we admire and appreciate you! And thank you to those in the audience that “shut up and listened.” #MyStory

Sharing the power of anecdotes

We can't make this stuff up! So proud of University of San Diego, thank you to The USD Vista for reporting!
"I think people really crave connection, and I think this event provides that"

“I feel like it creates a vulnerable environment on campus, and a lot of people aren’t used to seeing that from very established community members”

“To humanize is to also create connection, and to create a community, and to create empathy, and to create a safety net, and to create this sense of understanding that it’s okay to be who you are with fallacies and everyone has fallacies."

Shared Stories Bring Solidarity to Fordham University

"We have so much pressure to make college a perfect experience and nobody experiences that. The more open we are about that reality, the better off our generation’s college experience will be. That is the mission of my work."

Check out this great article written for Medium by Courtney Tapper! Thank you!

Fordham Students Share Stories of Love, Loss, and Self-Discovery

Still reeling from last week's success at Fordham. Thank you to the students who led, the students who spoke, and the students who listened. You all made that event a moment to be a part of. Thank you.

Everyone has a story to tell. That was the message of the Social Innovation Collaboratory’s first-ever Our Story event. The storytelling event, held on Nov. 15 at the Rose Hill campus, gave five Fordham students a unique opportunity to share powerful stories about their lives in a safe, empathetic,…
