S4E14: Are We Represented By Our Stories? With Adriana Ortiz

How do you tell your own story? Often when we think about our lives we focus on our shortcomings & struggle to see how all the parts of our story are weaved together. Adriana Ortiz believes that understanding our own story is critical to living a successful life, and she is dedicated to helping people do this.

Adri has been passionate about storytelling since she was a kid, finding that the literature she grew up with fell short in representing her layered life experiences. Join us for a fascinating conversation about storytelling, education & understanding the layered lives we live.
