The Power of Storytelling

When Ayla Schlosser ’09, who is Jewish, was 15 years old, a classroom discussion about conflict in the Mideast left her feeling hurt, confused, and misunderstood. Through this experience, she found that finding her voice and sharing her story not only helped to educate others, it empowered her. That is what Resonate is all about. Schlosser is the founder and executive of Resonate, which conducts workshops for women in impoverished countries to help them find their voices, tell their stories, preparing them for leadership roles in their communities. Here Schlosser—a Mary Maples Dunn scholar, who graduated with a major in political science and a minor in Spanish—talks about Resonate and her goals for the organization.
