Everybody has a unique story to tell, but not everybody gets the opportunity to tell it. Stories You MIISed, as coined by Lauren Howerton (a current MIIS student studying IEP’19), is a storytelling initiative and project which aims to create community through storytelling and allows students, faculty, and the community surrounding MIIS to engage in having their stories told.
Ianthe created this project due to realizing that not every students’ story would be featured in MIIS Communique, but there are so many unique stories that need a platform to be told. Thus, after being offered the opportunity to capture the Black Students at MIIS, and seeing them create community, it was apparent that storytelling creates community.
The projects below highlight stories that develop community! Please discover them and connect to the contact page if you’d like to share your story.
