Everyone has a story

My name’s Janine and I’m from the Netherlands. I’m sixteen years old and I have two brothers and a dog named Guusje. My hobbies are taekwondo and chilling with some friends. I’m a really quiet girl, but I’m absolutely not shy when I’m with my friends. I always do the stupidest random things and that’s why people think I’m crazy.

Crazy or not? I’m just myself and I’m proud of what I’m and who I’m.

That’s why I share the stories who are important. They provide context and history. They connect us with the past and the people around us. The stories we choose to share are important to our development. But equally important are the stories we choose not to tell. The stories we choose to withhold from others and ourselves.

I think there is a lesson to be learned from them.
