Definition of Real
By Earnest Kiarie
Storytelling is a wave that is sweeping the world. The fear of missing out is real and I am quickly trying to acquire this art before I become irrelevant.
I actively listen to how other people tell their stories so that I can learn how to tell mine.

Why do we let our work define us? Do we eat, breath and bleed ‘our work’? There is no formula to how this should be done but a good storyteller will tell you your job should be part of story but not the only story.

That way we create some human connection that otherwise would be hard to get when we define ourselves with just our jobs.
