I am so grateful that my story has been heard. In my vulnerability of coming forward about an experience that still continues to impact my mental health and life in general, I gained strength. I discovered that I'm not alone in my experiences and was contacted by others who confided in me and shared similar stories. I realized that we lack a safe space to share our unique lived experiences. We find community and regain our voice by telling our stories. This is power.
It's time for a change. I'm ready to move forward and I need your help.
I created Tianna’s Creative, a storytelling collective dedicated to uplifting and empowering voices & communities that deserve to be heard. The mission is to change the narrative by engaging in storytelling and imagining a better world by using the power of vulnerability combined with creative play (essays, documentary, film, podcasts, interviews, videos, photos, or however you would like to express yourself).
Tianna’s Creative will feature two new voices a month, in addition to writings by me. The two monthly features will be randomly selected.
I want to grow the storytelling collective into a nonprofit. I truly believe in the vision because it is valuable and needed in this world we live in. We are not our trauma, but a collection of our experiences. We have more to share with the world than just pain and trauma.
Tell me- Who are you? How do you experience life? How do you identify? What is something you haven’t told a soul? How can your personal experience or perspective help us create a better world?
100% of funds donated to the GoFundMe campaign will go toward supporting, designing, and building Tianna’s Creative from the ground up. Additionally, I want to compensate those who share stories on Tianna's Creative by donating funds to an organization of their choice.
Tianna's Creative is a storytelling collective that is the community and gives back to the community in the process. The launch date is February 3, 2021, which gives me plenty of time to engage in creative play and collaboration with others. I am so excited to share this project with you!
Have a story to share? Let’s change the narrative.
Thank you for your support. Take care and stay safe.
