One of the most memorable moments of our inaugural #WeAllGrow Summit was the Storytellers event. It was hard to find a dry eye in the room as the six fabulous, strong and vibrant Storytellers got up on stage to bare their souls in eight minutes time. They were funny, they were heartfelt, they were raw and real.

#WeAllGrow Storytellers is the event where we come together as the beautiful sisterhood of women we are to honor the influencers with a mission to tell their stories and connect communities.

We’re thrilled to announce that YouTube is sponsoring #WeAllGrow Summit Storytellers 2016!  We felt that YouTube would be the perfect partner given their global platform provides people the opportunity to share their stories and connect, inform and inspire others across the globe.

Please join us in celebrating this announcement and thanking YouTube for returning as a #WeAllGrow Summit sponsor with Storytellers.

The six selected Storytellers will attend #WeAllGrow Summit courtesy of YouTube. The  all-expenses-paid experience includes one conference pass, airfare and 3-nights at Hotel Maya! Not only that, but every one of the six hand-selected Storytellers will have the option to invite one blogging / creator friend to receive a conference pass and 3-nights in shared room at Hotel Maya, courtesy of YouTube to attend the conference with them! We want our Storytellers to feel supported as they share their stories, and what better way than having someone that feels like familia there with them.

And, yes, Kathy Cano Murillo (aka Crafty Chica) will be back to emcee and provide guidance and training (via Skype) to the six selected Storytellers. Our 2015 Storyteller alumni can tell you just how wonderful and helpful it is to go on this journey with Kathy!

YouTube will also work directly with the chosen Storytellers on tips and best practices for visual storytelling. That’s priceless, don’t you agree?

We heard from so many of you that you’re eager to submit a pitch for Storytellers 2016 and now your time has come!
