"A great storyteller —
whether a journalist or editor or filmmaker or curator —
helps people figure out not only what matters in the world,
but also why it matters.
A great storyteller dances up the ladder of understanding,
from information to knowledge to wisdom.
Through symbol, metaphor, and association, the storyteller helps us interpret information,
integrate it with our existing knowledge, and transmute that into wisdom. "
We can share stories and relate narratives not just through words or film.
Any art or craft form has the capacity to impart wisdom,
make sense of our world and the experiences we have.
Through Sticks and Stones, I processed through an experience of workplace bullying.
Through Somedays, I was able to express the reality of living with depression.
