Why do I share stories?

Everyone has a story to share –

Sometimes it’s a simple recount of a reality from your corner of the world. A memory of finding an inch of joy in the most unlikely of places, a tale of injustice from a voice the world tries to silence. Memories that might seem mundane, but to you, they’re truly momentous…

Shonasays is a space to share stories of the grit and sometimes the gold we find in our journeys here or abroad. These are the words that help me remember the people I meet around the world, the faces behind today’s issues and the thoughts that keep me up at night.

I’d love to hear your story
