Reflections on storytelling and education

“If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” – Toni Morrison 

What impact could happen if you shared your own story? 

“If and when people share their story, multiple things can happen. Not only do you gain a better understanding of the person in the story, but you also learn things about yourself as an individual. Simple solutions to common problems can also be found while reading someone else’s story.” – Taylor, IU student

“I think it all depends on who you share your story with. For example, if you share it with your friends, it’ll probably have a big effect. Also, if you’re sharing with your friends, depending on what type of person you were in the story, then the affect can be positive or negative. When you share your own stories, people who can relate to problems may finally have the encourage to stick up and say something rather than just continue to endure in things whether negative or positive.”           – Kamil, TEAM Schools student

“Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.”  – George Washington Carver 

“In the world that we live in today, in order to be in a high-paying job, you have to get an education. You need to go to college to get the education you need in order to be successful in life. Without it, you may be stuck in jobs you wouldn’t want. Education is a step one must take in order to be successful.” – Ny-Asha, TEAM Schools student

“Education transforms the lives of those who choose to fully embrace it and immerse themselves in it. Education really is a golden door. It is something that makes a person go from living one kind of life to another. Without it, your life is drastically limited in what you can do.” – Crystal, IU student
