Sharing your story is beneficial to both yourself and the world because this act connects you with others and inspires action to transform the way you give, love and live. When you speak your truth you get distance from your “perceived story” and a valuable awareness to move forward in life.

Based on a personal transformative, open-hearted and inspiring story that Yana will share with the audience, including the part why she left Russia and moved to New Zealand, and stories of other people, the talk explores the significant and hidden power of storytelling – the healing, transformative power, essential for every human being and curing the society in general.

“The more open and honest we stay with ourselves and each other, the more raw stories we share with the world, the better self-aware society we can build. That conscious humanity will make the right choices for the future generations to come.” – Yana Papaya, Founder @ Papaya Stories
