Growing up, stories are everywhere. Many of these stories we listen to and see firsthand from the people around us: our family, our friends, our community.
These stories and the ones we tell ourselves shape who we are and who we become.
We can also read stories through books.
When we read stories from people that are living the dream and grew up in similar or worse circumstances as us, then we begin to ask ourselves, “If they can do it, why can’t I?”
And once a young person asks themselves that question, anything’s possible.
