Transcript of Speak Your Mind

“I use poetry to help me work through
what I don’t understand, but I show up
to each new poem with a backpack full of everywhere else that I’ve been.”

— Sarah Kay Building Self Confidence
By Sharing
Personal Stories “I want my daughter to look at the world
through the underside of a glass-bottom boat...” “...to look through a microscope
at the galaxies that exist
on the pinpoint of
a human mind.”
— Sarah Kay This Prezi is inspired by Sarah Kay's Ted Talk: “A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end,
but not necessarily in that order.”
—Jean-Luc Godard Open your hands to reach out
and catch what the Universe offers.

Good things come in threes...
... as do bad things.

Our stories are about what we learn
when we embrace it all. The middle of the end
could be your beginning. End with the beginning
and the middle will
sort itself out.

It's all up to you... “It’s not just the adage ‘write what you know,’ it’s about gathering up all of the knowledge and experience you’ve collected up to now to help you dive into the things you don’t know.”
— Sarah Kay Write what you know
so you can understand
what you don't. List 10 Things
you know
to be
true. OR...

List 10 Things
you should have
learned by

Its your list after all! Select a truth or idea from your list...
and say...
...and then simply
writing your story. Know that someone else
shares that idea on your list And that someone else
has a completely
opposite concept
of your idea. Someone will have
you have
never even heard of
on their list. And know that someone
shares that idea
on your list
with a totally
different perspective. Rediscover wonder
Be engaged
Reinterpret the familiar Infuse
Challenge Spoken word is...

Easy to respond to.
Creates immediate connections. Life is a continuous journey.

Spoken word stories offer
safe passage and
passionate connections.

Share your truth... Life is a journey and it's easy to get lost... If I had a daughter she's not gonna call me
She's going to call me
“Point B”. your self Reach out... Discover new
connections... Crack open
the locks... Get inspired...
