It would be an honor to hear from you. If you’re staring at the “Tell us your story” box on this page and asking yourself if you have anything important to talk about, we promise that you do. Because everybody does.
The mere act of living your life gives you a different perspective than any other person, and there’s enormous value in that. Recognizing your self-worth is the first step in being part of this effort. It takes being vulnerable, and that's a tough thing to be. But you have an opportunity to inspire your friends, your family, your community, and a world of people just by being honest. You can talk about life experiences, or challenges you’ve faced, or how you’ve worked through difficult times, or anything at all. Remember: This is about you. There is no right or wrong way to create a Storied Portrait.
We will champion your voice simply by celebrating you. Your story will be one of many that challenge societal labels by giving glimpses into who people really are.
When people don’t feel seen or heard, it can marginalize entire communities. And bias doesn’t always come from the outside.
If this is happening in your community – or if you want to make sure it doesn’t – then there’s something you can do.
Hosting a Storied Portrait event is about more than just bringing people together to share and hear stories. These gatherings actually show that when we listen … really listen … we start to understand one another more profoundly. Once we start connecting with individual people on a deeper level, we can start seeing whole communities with more clarity. That’s where change can begin.
