When #WeAllGrow Storytellers closed out the first Summit in 2015, we had no idea how much of a staple it would become. For the past two years, we’ve heard some amazing stories from our community and each year, Storytellers brings us all closer together.
While there is much that makes #WeAllGrow Storytellers so special, what really elevates this session is all of you. It’s the ones that submitted for the first time, even if you were afraid. It’s the six finalists that take command of that stage and open up their hearts and souls to us, allowing us a glimpse into their lives and a moment to walk in their shoes. It’s all those gathered in attendance, who give their undivided attention to the Storytellers; who laugh, cry and empathize with the stories. We all come from different paths of life and face our own hardships. But during Storytellers, there’s a moment where all those differences melt away and the energy of sisterhood is significantly felt. It’s a moment of community, togetherness and love.
This year, we couldn’t be happier to partner with the team behind the Disney Princess “Dream Big, Princess” campaign to bring the stories of the six finalists to life and provide them with an all-expenses paid trip to #WeAllGrow Summit 2017. Everyone has their own dreams and ambitions, whether they want to be brave enough to break tradition like Merida, caring enough to create a community like Snow White, or entrepreneurial enough to build a business like Tiana. For every girl that dreams big, there is a Princess to show her it’s possible.
We received an incredible amount of submissions for Storytellers and we want to thank each and every one of you who submitted! We enjoyed getting to know you and learning about your journeys. Selecting the finalists was not an easy task. But together, the Disney Princess “Dream Big, Princess” team, Kathy Cano-Murillo and the #WeAllGrow Latina Network team were able to choose the six Storytellers.
Please join us in congratulating the 2017 #WeAllGrow Storytellers! A special thank you to the team behind Disney Princess “Dream Big, Princess” for allowing their stories to be shared. Get ready to laugh, cry and feel the energy of sisterhood with these spectacular women.
