The Danger of a Single Story

Social Consciousness / Saturday, March 5th, 2016

I think this video speaks for itself. I encourage you to take 20 minutes to watch it. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is on point as to why I have a passion to learn and to share other people’s stories. 

Six months from now, I will be joining 55 years of history with over 200,000 other Peace Corps Volunteers who made this same commitment. For me, this is a dream–my dream–come true.

As I reflect on my life, thus far, and the journey to come. This video is especially inspiring. And not to give away the ending, but: “When we reject a single story, we regain a kind of paradise”

Have you ever experienced a time when somebody judged who you are based on preconceived notions? What misconceptions have you had about others?
