Sharing Stories, Building Confidence

 

On Thursday 6th December at Board in the City a group of St Mary’s residents came together as storytellers – presenting their personal experiences in life, including the ways they have, or are, overcoming personal struggles. 

 

One contributor said,

 

I did not think that I would be able to do it or that my story would be of interest to anyone else. It was harder than I thought to stand up in front of everyone but I’m also really glad I did it.”

 

Coordinator Alex Ivancevic added, “This project is led by the community and is about telling personal stories – it is aimed at supporting people to have their voices and stories heard, to build and improve their confidence and skills.”
