#Weeknotes 7 (5 Mar) — What’s a story?

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

― Maya Angelou

I especially love this quote because the devil isn’t always in the details. It’s about the whole experience. When I recall my strongest memories, like my childhood in Shanghai being raised by my grandparents. I don’t recall the exact road we lived on or the kind of clothes my grandma would wear. I do remember my grandma’s smell, and how much she cared for me, through the many meals she’d cook for me and the words of love and praises she’d shower me with.

I used a miroboard to create a timeline to visualise what life can be like for someone with Severe Mental Illness based on the research I’ve done. It helped the audience to better engage with it. Much better than compared with yet another powerpoint.
For my project share with my colleagues, I drew up a timeline to visualise what life can be like for someone with Severe Mental Illness based on the research I’ve done. It helped the audience to better engage. Much better than compared with yet another PowerPoint.
Great talk by Elaine Fong to evoked strong emotions. What a great storyteller.
