Storyteller and author Salma Hasan Ali’s limited edition book 30 Days: Stories of Gratitude, Traditions, and Wisdom is a testament to the power of sharing personal stories. What started a decade ago as a blog during Ramadan grew into an international storytelling platform that connects people of all backgrounds around things we universally value.

Inspired by the interest in her book, Salma now launches her 30 Days Journal, where you can capture your own personal stories. Following daily prompts, after 30 days you will have a treasure trove of stories as a keepsake. Handmade by artisans with exquisite artwork, the journal will spark conversations between young and old, strangers and friends, and families of all traditions.

In this session, we’ll talk about the power of our stories, how sharing personal stories helps us form deeper connections, as well as tips for starting your own storytelling tradition.
