In the words of Kathy-Cano Murillo who co-hosted the closing Storytellers presentation at #WeAllGrow Summit 2019 sponsored by Wordpress.com, it was a “beautiful, magical, night.”
What is Storytellers?
Storytellers is a beloved #WeAllGrow Summit tradition that reminds us that our stories matter and need to be heard. Every year, we end #WeAllGrow Summit by listening to stories told by women from our community.
This year, seven women took the stage and shared compelling stories of growth that led them to change for the better. The magical thing that happens at Storytellers is that the listeners are also changed for the better after listening to these women’s stories.
Let us introduce you to the participants.
