The Power of Storytelling

“The shortest distance between two people is a story.” – Patti Digh

The power of storytelling has always intrigued me: how sharing stories can spark attention and connect us together. It’s through this connection of relating to one another that we can begin to care and take action.

Why Go?

Why go to college?

People go to college for lots of reasons. Some people want to get a job that requires a college education. Other people go to college because they’re not sure what to do next and figure taking classes might help them sort out what to do with their lives. There are some people who go to college because everyone else they know is going and still others go initially to meet new people. Finally, some people go to college because they know that putting that experience on their resume will look good. And they’re right. In fact, any of these reasons is a good reason to try college. A college experience is good for anyone who wants to learn, meet people, and prepare for a job and make money.
