While abroad, you were bombarded with millions of non-digestible and non-memorable story fragements across an unmeasurable amount of momemts, like making new friends, meeting a stranger, watching TV, listening to the news and studying on a foreign campus. The truth is that we simply cannot process every one of these encounters and turn them into comprehensible knowledge, let alone retain them. This workshops offers an opportunity to turn your jumbled fragments into articulated meaning through a constructed, coherent story and prepare it for a digital format — a skill that is extremely effective in any professional field.
