Storytelling is an age-old tradition of the world. It has been practiced to pass on information, make sense of experiences, and understand one another. It has the power to immortalize individuals and events, incite ideas and action, and bring people together.

  1. I'm glad to know that some people are still having this kind of strategy to convince people and to tell them what they want to do. Although storytelling is kinda old, many people still find it entertaining. So I know that this project will be successful because this will catch a lot of attention and also a way to send a message to people.
