I have been teaching this class for thousands of student in different groups and levels, for example, student leaders at college and university. Mannesmann Leader Inc Woman leaders. But this class is not only for leaders this for everyone's because we need story in many different situation in our life, on our careers, every startup you might need to paste your idea in front of investor or you work for a cooperate you might have a job interview people for the promotion are gonna have a present is in about the New Passaic idea and ask everyone to join you. Even student, you might need to prepare for the statesman or purpose for those school up the casing. You also miss story to be the product brand or the personal brand are. If you want to become an influencer on social media, it's more in both business setting. I mean so, so setting, particularly. You can apply it in the daily life. In the conversation with the family members and our friends. You don't need any prior notice or skill to taking this class. Instead, it's could be a very interesting journeys for you to discover more about the true self, which you normally might not pay attention to. So in this, but you're gonna learn in scientific ways how a story can influence human full set of making the season and taking actions it Linda structure of an inspiring story and how to connect door story to the audience. And more importantly, you will how to tap on book their hurt on their head. This isn't make kings by the end of the class even feel more comfortable to craft their own story to inspire action in practically any situation in the life and career on the project of this class is you wouldn't prepare three minutes storytelling off the topic that you care about on. You ask people to joy you to take actions. I'm very excited to hear our of the story in this God let get that 2. Why we need stories? : Storytelling in sorry, parts of our human countries, that's how we human pass our knowledge and life lesson from generation to generation. So how school and why people tell story? Let's think about that for a moment. How many time during a day you have to face with something unexpected happened in the life. For example, thickness is our chi is broken business of family ECU. So we might think like the fundamental dimension of human experience is have to deal with something unexpected. And when we have to deal with things we cannot prepare before. We seem very curious about how when we watch a movie or novel, we follow what is happening to the actors in this story. And we have the filling, like we are able to experience what is going on in the story, says as if is where my own experiences, our own experience into reading rate. How is work. That's core to what we call mirror neurons. Mirror neuron is a neuron that fires when an animal ice or when an animal observes the same action from the others. At that time, the neuron mirrored the performance from the other as if the offset itself acting is, That's me when I was someone doing something and I can experience eliminated as if I were doing it myself. So toured the process, what I learned from the story and what do you most and I have to the story is become passive my own emotional experience. And so the moral of this story and learn from it is come to my hat, not as must add to my Hertz and become passive. The experience that I can draw on. That's how a story teaches two, and that is why medicines and control aunties two-story. Where did you hear the first lesson in the life? I mean, how many people here? The first lesson in the life from our parents, our grandparents. So you ask the question, why is take time to tell us all the story. When our parents wanted t-shirts and lesson when we were lead a kid, for example, they wanted tissue. The lesson about the persistency. How did they do that? That they prepare a PowerPoint presentation with all of the argument and bullets or to explain about to, you know, write. Instead, they could tell you a story between a race, rabbi's annual total and the less than you get from me, you can understand it. And recently senior leader. And you even can remember it to honor the life. Or there are many of the time we had the story from our parents. Like let me tell you a story about our related Jenny. That's what happened to Jenny. And she talks a wrong turn. And we don't want to be late January or when they will add jaw age. There are many times that I have to face with this difficulty, but I try my best to overcome it. That Assad familiar to you. So we tell story to our key to let them learn by identified their characters forms a story. And they will learn how to make the choice or the DC isn't in that similar situation. That's how we give the instruction to you. They're hurt by selling our own experience. We let them have opportunity to experience that themselves to the tailoring what we call before. Meter neuron is different with the setup of the room with Doc kiss and I do the do that, don't do this, don't do that. It never worked this way. So if these powerful storytelling is her ability to move the herd, to teach the head commonly Kate directly to the. Now, let's see how our bin reacts to story. When we telling story to our audience. We create in most sense among our audience. And when he Mohsen stricter, dopamine flooding our brain. And this chemical that habit feel so excited and easy to remember are up there detail in this story. That is the reason why we easily remember this instead of that story and how we telling in is could lead to totally different reactions from our audience to the topic that we're telling. In my earlier bounces story of Troy library of book burning Patty. I put the link down in the Cotton description so you can wash it in two minutes. So it's basically talking about the story of a very beautiful library in choice city of Michigan. It's, we're about ten years ago when the city government did not have money to preserve and running the library. So they did arrange a vote for local people to increase a small percentage in tax. But the non-tech Ruth, Very again it, and they make noise about it. And the team that topic from totally about library to this tax. And how the group of Goffman reacted to it. They are very creative. They create a campaign name, book burning campaign. And they get attention from onlooker people. People come and comment on the Facebook, pays that. And you get crazy how you can think about burning library books and the gate to the attention of the national level and even international level. At the end of the campaign, they revealed that the vote to again, the library is a slight devote for burning books. So everyone understand the meshes. They changed the conversation completely from tax back to library until the end of the campaign, they get more than 300 people supporting their campaign. Then those who again, it says you can understand how important of the way you telling the story that could lead to how the audience reacts to it. 3. Science of human taking decisions and actions: this class. We're talking about story that in spite people to take action. So let us get about science off human taking decisions on accents, their public study in frontier of psychology. So that emotion play a powerful role in this isn't making they disquiet that this isn't making at the competitors in between emotion system on the reason system one is very automatic and porn to error, the other is low but rational. You can imprisons. Is the antagonism between emotion system on the reason system at the two horses pulling out in two totally opposite directions on Whisk Way is stronger. Gonna decide the way that we make the decision when emotion is trigger is my interfere the cognitive system on create a bottom up fit back in Jordi season making in Joe contacts This isn't making on the activists some of the emotion related brain reasons. I'm producing emotion adjustment that a powerful knee nap to constrain our cognitive all reason system. So we're gonna take it into a cow when recreating our story. The stupidity here is we wanna have on the emotion system first before we bring in any street is a and reasons 4. Emotion, Value and Action: We have been discussing about the significance of emotional communication. However, in diarrheal live them anytime that you have been told that MY cognitive, MY rational get in motion from the picture expensive at their professional working environment. However, in most powerful is actually what move. And the concept of motivation is originally from a latent worst movies with mean move. We all recognize that in most unhappy his own language. For example, music speaks the language of emotion. Music communicate and communicate directly to the hurt and tissues. Movie is all speak the language of emotion. Similarly, storytelling also speak the language of emotion. However, before the most thing can lead it to action, there's something else that we need to discuss about which value. So y value is important to take absent. Then many town that we have a lot of emotion, but we won't take action if we feel like it doesn't fit with our value system to your value system is what actually actually move you into action. The value system you'll develop that make you have US judgment what is right or wrong, and then that drawing you into action when the value crib from when you are born. The credit from historic country, heavy taste, believe families or childhood experience. For example, I didn't value family. Why westerner value independent? So you won't be surprised if you see a grown-up is imposing, chose to leave with her or his family, his parents after even they get married. Why American would not do so? So, so Troy you make in the story could reflect the value. And to the story, people can understand the values. 5. Structure of an Inspiring Story: high in the lesson three of this glass you win loan about the structure of an inspiring story that remain part of the story. The 1st 1 in the story of self on the 2nd 1 of the connections with mean that the connection between those cells story to the audience on the last one, in the straightly, on the cone to accents in the story of cell is time for you to tell the Orient who you are . What is the value that's have the Orient understand you more on They know why you care about this topic. Why so much important to you and you decide to stand up to talk about it. I need chorus everyone to take action with you during the time I have been teaching this that there many times that, for example, to college has bean working together for many years the same team in the company. But they never listen. Teoh their personal story never understand their value and what is important in their life . So after they listen to each other personal story, they understand each other in a deeper level and view a stronger connection between them telling the personal story is very half one to be the connection between you and the audience, and you can apply it not only at work or Dapo Fastenal environment, but actually you can apply in the daily conversation with the family members out of friends , first them. But the way my mom, Tosh, is value educations by telling her own story when she was 18 in 19 years old. At that time, after graduate from high school, she have a dream to go to college. But she have to stop her dream and start walking at her early age to support her family's on her, see playing financially so that they can have opportunity to go to college 10 years after that, when on a posi bling graduate from school and have a stable life and jaw see, start going back to college and continue her college dreams. By listening to my mom's story, I really had might her and see become my models in Arab my career and as educational journey. So the second part is the connection after you telling those stories is time for you to connect those story to your audience. So what is it coming between you and the audience. Did you guys there any experience together? Or did you facing the same struggles? The same challenge? What is the same purpose why you got here sitting next to each other after great the born emotionally with the audience it time for us to work on the hat pack. So now what is the problem? Was the strait of these as we can work together to fix this problem on what is the specific action you call them to do? Let be very specific corn toe accent. 6. Story to the Heart: In this lesson, you will learn how to craft a two-minute story of self. That story of cell ears story for the Orient to learn about you. What are the value, why you care about this topic and what calling you to take leadership heavily. You ever talk about the cell before year we did way. There are many times that we talk about our self, but mostly unconsciously. But now when they asked you to tell about ghost story, a story, to speak to the war, who you are. How many of you feel confident to do that? It's difficult. But today we will learn. Now this goes to i for a moment. Recall on the memory in childhood, the school, the family. That story of Sal is as a matter of drawing sum the moment, our experience that save you into who you are today. And when you start sharing the experience of the special moment, people when start seeing you. It's not a balanced CV. Any title you have at work is about who you, who you are, and what you care in their life. So let's see the structure of story. So there are three main, eliminate every story that we need to prepare about. We have first, a blur, a characters, and a more urban story. Applaud engages, captured our interests and draw our attention to the story. Let's take an example. I went up this morning, take a breakfast, and go to the storytelling workshop. Is this an interesting plot? Know Re, so how I can make it more interesting by adding some more 11 moment or unexpected thing happened to you. The main characters in the story, and wake up this morning, have breakfast, and go to take my car. The storytelling works up. The Cartesian work. I couldn't stand it. And my phone will our plane, so I couldn't even call a taxi, is worth about 20 minutes before the class. And I do want to be late. So I would thinking eBay could run a facet ICANN is could take me about 20 minutes to get to the glad. So I decided to change my spots so and run to the class. I will running really fast to be able to be on time. And I would kind of threading and our bread. But suddenly on the way to run here, I saw a tiger. Oh my god was so scary an agreement. Even think about it, I will run as fast as I could in my life. And luckily, thanks for the tiger. I'd got here exactly at 08:00 AM. And even now my Hurston bidding Hour of the reason. And I was reading so much, but I'm ready to start our storytelling lesson. How about that? Is that blurs more intriguing compared to the previous one. Story when have a characters and a bird. The characters is moving towards the desired goal, but the allure of town that challenges or difficulties this appear. And our character needs to figure out how to get overcome them. And thus what our interest in the story, and we want to find out what happens. Applause consists of three elements with an unexpected challenge, unexpected choice, and the outcome would get up, kay? Every day we have to deal with unexpected, small or large, no more ticket and movie theatre, you about to lose her job. The marriage is about to break up. We are constantly faced with unexpected. And when you're going to do as human being, we make choice as the present based on what we've remembering about the past and in machines of the future. But when we accept the routine, we don't make the choice with as follows routine. But only when the routine is break, when the guidelines are unclear. When no one can tell us what to do. That is when we make our real choice, we are creating our life, our future, our community. We are who we are for, what are the choices we make? Finally, we get the outcome and usually we hit the moral of the story at the end of the story. So a Maurer, a well-told story is fell understanding, not only conceptual, understanding, story t-shirt to know how to act in the right way. They are not simply example or illustration. When is well TO we experienced deploy and we fill the hole. And that is the experience, not the word esse says, let's move into X and now we have the characters, the bars, and the moral, putting them together how we tell a story? Well, a well-told story is where the listener can be able to leasing, smell, feel the way that you feel for the answer to be in the story. You need to paint a very vivid picture, provide even the South, the smell PR hat and how you feel. And remember to draw Spencer and important moment in the story. Remember, so don't tell. Usually in the story of cell we're going to talking about a turning point in the life. The moment when you have to make a very tough and difficult decision. But that time the life in a totally different direction. I'm telling you it's about the whole and the resource that gives you the courage to make that difficult decision. A spot, it's a reflection. What have you learned from that experience? And what do you want the audience to learn from that to let debrief is Story of self route Tomas, that ACL link in the description so you can wash it in a few minutes. In his story, he sat with his childhood Ray. What picture do you remember from his childhood? How detail his door, the picture in front of you felt when an image is a 8.5 years. Okay. Wait, Gavin a dagger, Canada. Every morning you have to open the band goes and there was a real alternative rise funding arouse. You put savviness, do is enable leader kid in Das seen. How could you feel re, how scarcity, and we're going to ask him dead, what did he'd reacted to his close a door and tell him go out to finish the char and never come back if you haven't finished yet. What good do you feel in that situation? I know that you could have the same feeling that too much. As a leader kick. He describes some of the events in the story that you can understand how he mean by him not growing up in a very supportive environment when he known that hit that getting cancers and couldn't live for long, he fight back next to hit dead. And there one question that he asked his town that and make you proud with the hope that they would be the first time in his life that he's dead gonna say something that encourage him. But no, unfortunately, he does this. Say that nothing that I could think and thus broke his life. And then what is a turning point in his life that he could make the decision to chain. That scored the term that he had a discussion with his mentor at real estate company rank. And he's meant to explain to him to understand that the way that he thinking about himself is not correct. And how he labor himself is how it's going to happen in his life. So now he can chain it. He can, I'm programmed the ways that he thinks about himself, what is filling up, that he described it very clearly when he's with driving home and he was so happy, so excited that he's screaming rally and were wrongfully had some animal rapidly handsome man. What's less than u and our cell learn from me, which I, you can change the way that you label the self and what comes up the IM following you. 7. The Connection: So in the story of cell, you already sell about who you are. What do you care about the life, and why you called to stand up to take the leadership. Then how you get the connection between your story to the audience. What are the common, the connection between you and the audience? And what is the values or experience that you wish? Either the listener, the audience could be someone you know very well in the life. For example, the family members, friends, or co-workers, or teamwork. However, there could be someone who you don't know or you never meet in real life. But you guys still have the connection. Eat, you said the same value, or are you care about the same thing in the life? For example, if you go to a football match and when the favorite team score one score, he was so excited and happy you resent being up and keys and have the person next to you when you get to know each other. But you bought cherry, the moment of the happiness, the winning moment of the team. So about the structure of this part, of the connection part is going to be similar to the story of cell wish you would have three main part. What is the challenge, that choice you've made and the outcome you get for me. And now similarly, we wouldn't have the challenge that you and the audience both families together now. And what is the choice that you all make together? What is the hole and the outcome you already get? You expect to get from me. For it. We are all facing the same challenge globally this year. I'm talking about the Covitz pandemics, which we all suffer in every country. So what did the same challenge that we face in here? You can be more specific about the challenge. For example, our hair, or it's all affect the economy globally. And then you can give some more specific example of the people around you who suffering for me. For example, my friends who are a couple in love with each other. And now they stuck into different countries and couldn't see and mid-range style for most a year. So that is a challenge we all face. And when you list out some of the specific example other people wanna have related to it because some where, some blame other people on still suffering the same challenge that we have in here. And now talking about the choice, what is the choice that we make together now? The AV one, we have to try that we when protect our cell and we will protect our family members and people around us. And we also tried to have And the people in the downtown, then what is the whore and the outcome you expect from it? So it read to gather, follow the guidelines from the government or the health care center when strongly believe that we will overcome this issue soon. Not in one area, one country, but all over the wall. So but to tell my story, you will learn one tape of how he gets a connection between his story to the audience who seem not related to his DUAs. And after you listen to his story, might think that, oh, I don't have that top. Chai Hou Lai He did, I didn't have to suffer thing guy he had in his life. So how I could have the same filling or the connection with his story. But do you remember the question that he asked you? Giving you the label? You have to sort. You are too tall, you are, you are introverted. And then you take that label and you think that that's worth just cell, that is the label of u. Now you'll look back at the life and you realize that, yeah, there's some moment in my life that people gave me the wrong labels. But I said carried with me as it is for me. But actually, this wasn't true. I was different. I know myself better than any other. So now you have to understand what he trying to say and what were his feeling at that moment. And that is the way that he get the connection between his story to you who are not really related in dusty ways and all, never met him. If you tell a story at work, you may have been working together for quite a long time. So then many experience on moment that you have sat with each other. So you can pick out one. The moment of the time that you were worked together. What was the challenge that you bought phase, you are in the team. What's the decision that you made together? And what would the outcome that you got after you make the cynicism together and fund the story, remember to try to Manson every one, every name of the team industry so they wouldn't feel they are part of it. So that would be one example when you want to encourage everyone work together, consolidate together to do the big thing. Like we already did such a good thing to gather in the past when we work together, we, our team work with each other. And now with that same attitude on motivation, we believe that we can do something bigger and better than it. And then after that, you can come to the next corner, accent what you want them to do together in this theories and now. 8. Story to the Head: Hi. In this lesson we will talk about the last part of the stories with at the Strait that the paths are the part of cone to action after getting the bonnie most annually with the audience to the story of cell and the connection to the audience. Now time for you to tap on the head with it, the shader, the data and actions. So back to this DUAs n. Now what is a challenging that we are facing together with its really OSes are serious that we need to work on it. What you want to do to join you in action in this topic. You need to be as specific as possible when your call to action, you need to have the detail of, for example, the location, the time, and detail of the action. So they are very clear what they can do and contribute to their project. Let us go back to Thomas story and see what he were asking it. He said, you get to redefine ourselves. Let's answer the question. Who you are and who you want to be. When you talk about a project or something specific at work, although career, you could bring it more in illustrated the paths and Twitter data and the specific detail that the Odean would know how to start to join you. And don't forget in the contracts and init to quit some hope in the audience what could be the result, the bright future after we started working together and have accident on JS ECU. So by creating the hope we give them more encouragement. And the Mohsen does that, working on it. Now, look at some negative feelings why people don't want to take actions. Very useful when we need people to take action right now, we need to let them see the urgency. And sometime in leadership, we might need to create the urgency. And why that. Because people I knew sierra, which mean that they have a tendency of doing nothing or remain unchanged. Don't feel the urgency, they probably don't take any action. So you need to bring some herbs in ECU for them. For example, like we don't like by next week, things are gone. Bad result, good happen. Sometime you might need to bring up anger, made people feel angry. Why? Because there are many of time people feel like an Internet, no concern on and to see them. One another reason that they don't act is because people have fear. The fear of doing that batting could happen, the fear that they couldn't success. So you need to bring up some h4, let them see the bright future. If they take the action now. Sometime people feel lonely or isolated. Like few so long and I couldn't do it myself. You need to be now the solidarity. No, you are not alone. You have arrived at a group who wouldn't fight together with you. There another term that people wouldn't take action because they sell tap about themselves. They are not confident that they have the ability to do it. So what do you count it that you let them to see that they can do it. They can make a difference. 9. Debrief James' Story: So let listen to James cough storytelling. It's Jane was a student at the time he would delivering the speech. He gave this bit to call people to take action against homophobic bullying in school. You can find a link of the video in the resource of the legend. Why you are listening to his talk? Pay attention to these following questions. Where the Story of self, the connection, the shaded x0 and x1 to x. And what was he challenged his choice and his outcome? What details in maize and moment due to this story brings to life? What value does this story commonly K. Now let listen to his spirit and then come back for our deep rib section. Okay, now it's time for our depraved section of James Dory. So which story that he's that waste story of self, a connection. The shaded the end coin two actions. You remember how his history with 600 and forfeit is about how far Tyler garment and fell after he jumped off the George Washington Bridge. Because his video footage of him with another man who was shim life on the internet. That is a 5K a number and that is what we taught in straight the Deepak gray. Do you remember the image? He mentioned very specify the name of the boy, Tyler joshua Washington Bridge, the height of the bridge. You remember and medicine in the cloud that we need to draw the picture for the audience. You see how he did that? He catch the attention? Yes, Ray, somebody already die. Then why did he start with the Quran ECU industry? The part because he wanted to bring up the urgent need Zu, He wanted to cut, draw attention. In the class. We learned that the phone story. First we talk about story of self and then the connection with the audience. And the last part is illustrated the M cone to action. However, you don't have to fake with this audio. In the story. You can be very flexible, is can be in any order then no fixed formula phi. And then which story did it moved to? He says, I've never experienced anything like what Tyler went to when I was at school, but I was bullied for being gay. That is Story of cell Ray. He started talking about himself. What he challenged, his choice and his outcome. He challenged here is he himself is a guy and he was bullied for being gay. Do you remember any maze from history of self? Do you remember layered task and blue si110 hard pans. He talks about how he loved music and his secrets leak like the alphabet. Did he pay the emails vivid in front of you? He doesn't need to say, hey, I'm a gay, but to the detail of the outfit, we can see that way. And you remember I said in our lesson, so not tell its head, Challenge, clear. The teacher, make fun of him. How going he was. Dancing is not something for boy. He filling at seven years. Okay. When the first time we'll call a fat. And he said, I was all along in the war that I would the only one who had this broke them. Now what story narrate? The linking story from his story of self. Now he moved to the connection and how he did that by mentioning that they some moment when everyone can feel long, perhaps U2 saw and the tone guy make fun of you. But have you a two tone and the salt guy make fun of you. Did you get the connection with his story? He was very smart in a way he connect his story and his filling to everyone's who even further taught that desk will not their problem. And then he continue connecting with people by asking you, you come home and see a strange safe hanging from the gene, the bandgap tweeting in the when and the crack of the branch. You can see how detail he saw the image in front of you and how he's still filling. Then he said, it's good. Have been the brother, the sister, the son, the daughter. So the audience and even new does sell fill like you are passive. His story was neck. A ten year. He waste his time and he doesn't want to waste any more time. Then he moved to Australia The by saying that he need to act now. We need to act now that how he created the urgency, we need to catch the kids before they jam. And what the hope in his story. He said, we are Harvard student with sparkling degree than we could make the difference. What he, his asked, just hold the camera to set the story. No contribution is small. Is this a specific as he means them? If you're a graduate student, you are undergrads. Who you should contact with when and where? A like five to 07:00 PM at this room. Everything and every detail he asks for is very clear so that everyone is ready to joy to take action with him. Now you can see shortly how storytelling half the power in bringing the meshes to the audience. Those story is a way for you to connect with the audience and motivate them to take action with U. 10. How to practise? : we learned the structures of a story. The first part it does sell story on. Then you get the connection between those self to the audience. On the last part, illustrated the past and the cone to action. Now is Tom for you to start practicing it, You might think that uses have a very normal life there. Nothing spells so about the life to talk about. But I tell you, every exhibit have our own story. There was a moment that saved our life that chain our direction to the way we are today. I have been teaching this class for 1000 of students on. They all have the same talk like that at the beginning of the class. But to the end of the class, they was on be able to make wonderful stories. I can take a next Sambora, one of my students, that by looking at her you can tell easily that sees look like or princess because he have been taken care so must by her parents. You can in Moses what could be a hard life or hot time for this kind of princess gone. But see toward the stories that C were bully at school at that moments, if you so weeks, he couldn't know how to protect herself because they never learn how to live her life independently. Christie was this crying and feel like she was loses after the moment, seeking back home and talked a lot about it. And she make her own decision that see winds that from today starting to learn how to live her life independently. Before you decide to do anything, just ask yourself why you want to do it. Why so important to you give thou inside you? Then you so said with the audience. So they understand you more that it's also the way for you to get connection between yourself on the audience. And remember, before you say with the audience the solos and to fix the problem, let's get them, understand why they need to do it, why they need to take the accent. Why now, instead of later, after they understand that is very easier for you to say about the Strait of the on the phone to accent right? This makes perfect less than practicing it. From today, it's to prepare a few stories that talk about some of the many important value in the life getting ready so that you can take it out and use it any time you need at exterior wise. And is this need to rearrange the story a little bit to be suitable with the audience at that moment? Good luck for storytelling, Andi, I'm very excited to hear the story you selling in the glass project. 11. Student story example & coaching process : Hi, guy. How is the percent of practicing the storytelling? Is it in treading or difficult or challenging? I get that there's some challenging from the first dry right. But I get is also very interesting experience for you, too. Look back in the life to fight the to value or the rear motivation for what you are doing today, right? And I'm very happy to see some of the projects that you guy only the submit after watching my class. They're all very wonderful and inspiring story. I did keep commend to the story that use of me on hope you're gonna have a new revisions of it. Wish out look better than it on. Do you know what I want to say? That we don't expect for the foot? Trier is the perfect version is a learning process. So keep trying, asking opinion from the people around youth and then revise your story. I'm prejudice so that it could improve after x time. You revived it. I can give you in one example of my students story on how I keep her command. Onda coaching her story so her neck versions would be a lot improved than the 1st 4 than even the first person is already really good. So I did ask her permission to sell her story so I can read it which you guys today. So let's get started with her. First was in of her story. I came home only to be late from about a party. I opened the door and stole my dad. He looking at me with her saw skirt. My having maker on my rent. New collar. It's a slap over my face. I don't even realize what were happening yet he was solving angrily at me. Look at you lie a prostitute. You're not my daughter. Get out from my house. I didn't know what to say. Was this quieting running out from the tour and since that day I moved to my school dorm. I grew up in a very strict Asian American family and in our my child, the memory All I have it does. My mom was staying at home during house work and cooking and my cash sounding at her whenever the food didn't taste like what he want. I knew I don't want to leave the lifeline. My mom's I finished. My coalition got a fellowship to study in humanity and then her equality from which I have opportunity to travel around the wall, meet a lot of people, listen to thousands of woman's story and got inspired by Laura Woman leaders. Now I'm supporting for United a U N Woman project to end violence again. Women one. Why some of you, my experience, the violence in the family? Or you might say that's happened to the woman around you. It's gonna be the related the neighbors, the friends, the woman, you know, and you don't want that outcome happen to them, Ray. So let's stop that. Don't let that happen to the people you love Joy OD now a campaign simply by cysts that by liking our Facebook, Sau opposed and spent the word about Xander equality. It doesn't matter where you are. Away your farm American of freakin European Asian. One contribution could bring a big change in the society, less that from today. So I really like her story on this is the story that have ah all food three pass up on inspiring story that I already mentioned in my class. So you remember the first part is the story of self. On the next pass, he moved to the connections on the last part of the story, which see have a very clear cone to accent to the audience. So let's get started with the story of self. Um, remember, see this quiet herself story wish an image of the night when she came back home, laid out her birthday party on its one very in 10 conversation between her and her dad on her debt to slap over her face on DSI were crying and running out from the house. She also gave it an image up her family, how her debt were treating her month in a not very respected way. Or we can say that it's abusing and violence, family, environment, time and house to get on the connection with the audience in Don't Experian you, my see violence somewhere around us could be in their families. Or it could be someone you know on D. C asked you that. You don't want that to happen to the woman that you know. You look right. So, um, it lead to the last pass. West RC, we're asking you for the action to contribute to her project on U N Woman project on what is the specific asked, That's he did ask you, which are very symbols this, like the Facebook page and say they're posed. So again, I really like the story. Everything very queer and structures on the all three pass is already having in just or so after, listen to you her story. How do you feel? Do you feel her motivation to do? Was he doing? Do you feel the connection that this could happen to the people around you? And do you feel that You also said the same feeling and motivation to ready to join her, prosaic to raise our welling to protect woman around you by So it's a very good story on I'm very proud of her first attempt writing her story, So there's some part that I want to hear more in her story. The first part is the story of self. When she was telling out about her experience in a abusive family environment, I want to hear more about her feeling her struggling in in home my aunt house. He get her motivation to get out. From of that, I think that there could be more convincing to the audience ifs in the shade early and corn toe axe impart to give us more daters off. The evident to So what about the urgencies off the serial? Open the violence issue to woman so we'll see that it's a really ocean thing that we need to, um, take action now's and we need to contribute to protect women around until Action Party's already very clear sand on those actions are question posed so that people will not hesitate to attack action to join her in the project. And one more point in the chest of the and corn toe action parts, which I already mentioned in my class that it should give us some that you should give the audience some hope for them to see the bright future. Andi. What is a chain that we could see in the near future if they contribute widowed in the project, my basic and give some data or I'll take one of the example of the woman that they already support on their life already chained significantly. Ah, happier after that. But let's listen to her second versions up the story to see how it's improved after the comment. I came home early to be laid from a birthday party and he opens a door. I saw my dad. He looked at me with a sauce skirt a little bit. Having makeup on reading new Kahlo's He's a slob over my face. I didn't realize Squad will happening yet. He was souring angrily at me. Look at you Look like a prostitute. You're not my daughter. Get out from the house. I didn't know what to say. I was this crying, running out from the door. And since that day I moved to my school. Anton, I grew, have you know, very strict. I used an American family, you know, or my child, the amazing my mind was my mom staying full time at home doing housework and cooking on my dad was a souring at her winner with this food. Didn't taste like what he want. I knew I don't want to leave my lifeline, my mom's but it was struggling to knew what I'd and my mom deserved to all have the right to ask for. I finished my colleagues and got a fellowship to study in humanity and Xander, equality from which I got opportunity to travel around the wall, listen to thousands of woman's story and got inspired by a lot of woman leaders. Now I'm supporting for Unite on U. N. Women Project to end violence again Woman who vow the war You know there's some stuff it takes Formed Avenue Asia from the data over 80 countries. Father. One in three women. You know, one in three women have experienced a six core are sexual violence. And the problem is why range from all regions from high income countries toe western Pacific Eastern military in to sow it. Asian reasons. That's mean it can happen and you wear away leave. And it even was when some women were fighting suicide at the solar. Listen for them to get out from those scenario. Some of you, my experience, the violence, indoor family, are you might see it happened to the woman around. You all could be there, doll related. The neighbors, the friends of the woman, you know, and you don't want that outcome happen to them, right? So let's stop that. Don't let this happen to the people you know. Are you love? Joyous And now a campaign by simply first step liked our Facebook page say I oppose and spent the worst about woman and Sandra You quality. It doesn't matter why you firm away Lee American a Facon European noise in one contribution could bring a big chain in self society less that action from today.
