Story Submission

How can I submit my story?

Whose Stories Will We Hear is a project that aims to uplift the untold stories of the African continent. Inspired by the brilliant young Rwandan women who participated in our storytelling workshop, we are opening Series IV: Our Future as Told by Us.

For the longest time the Continent has been told stories about itself. What happens to the story when it is given back to its owners? There are many outside of the Continent who speak about how our global collective future rests with young Africans but what do these young people believe?

This is an opportunity for young Africans to inform and educate by sharing their insight with us.

If you are a young African currently residing in Africa, you are invited to submit your story, which will be your perspective on one or several of the following prompts:

  1. This journey, what does it look like for those of us who live here?
  2. Where are we now and where are we going?
  3. What is my personal role in the future of my country and my Continent?
