Why share your story?
Sharing your story gives you the courage to own the grace in the difficulties and fully embrace the joy.
Sharing your story gives others the chance to be inspired in hope.
Sharing your story makes us recognize what make our lives special, what unites us in joy and suffering, and what remind us how human we are.
