The Story That Started It All

“Over the years I have become convinced that we learn best—and change—from hearing stories that strike a chord within us…” -John Kotter

Storytelling is one of the most powerful means of connection. When we tell stories, we are sharing pieces of our true selves. When we share our genuine stories, we share a moment of vulnerability with our audience and wait, with baited breath, to see if they will meet us in the moment and hear our words.

We had the opportunity to share our story within one of the most exciting and vibrant communities out there: the TED community. Christina shared her story, for the first time in public, and waited with baited breath to see if those listening would meet her in this moment of vulnerability. She did not wait long. The response to her story has been overwhelming.

People heard, and continue to hear the realities of not just Christina’s story, but the stories of the thousands of women of Uganda.
