What did we discuss?

Literature, discrimination and emotional intelligence. Elif & I talked about why storytelling matters in the fight for just and equality. And Elif shared some tips on how YOU can become a writer, as everyone has a story to tell.

My favorite quote of the episode was, “When we travel into someone else's truth, it connects us with our fellow human beings and makes us realize that the truth can change.”
