The Power of Telling Your Own Story

The Power of Telling Your Own Story

Watch the following video: Colenso, D. (2017). The power of telling your story (Links to an external site.). Tedx Talks via Youtube. [Video: 11:47 minutes]. Transcripts.

  • What aspects of Colenso’s talk resonated with you? Do you agree with him about the value of sharing more of our stories with one another?  
  • Then, reveal a bit about your past and how it relates to your present in the style Colenso suggests. For example, how did you get here? What prior knowledge, credit-taking, military, career, or real-world experience do you bring with you today? How did your family and other loved ones impact your story? 
  • Give a glimpse into your future: What do you plan to do next in your degree path and career? How do you think acknowledging and leveraging your story can help you succeed in those goals?
