Reflection of a Mandela Washington Fellow: Are Africans Making Africa Vulnerable?
12th July 2015
Storytelling is a potent tool for civic leaders. This is because it gives us the ability to narrate our story of change as we work to influence people and policies towards collective growth. With storytelling, we also get a chance to create a true picture and peddle to others the great potentials that our communities possess. Through effective storytelling, we are able to help people see beyond the peripheral of issues around us. At such, we can challenge existing perceptions and build positive expectations while giving others a chance to see the other side of the single stories that build their perceptions.
