Sarah’s Story – click to listen
Welcome to the fifth installment of Swat Storytime, previously Friday Storytime. This weekly feature showcases student and faculty voices, each sharing a brief, personal story in audio form. This is the second in a series on Survival.
Above is a link to a story told by Sarah G.’16 about the disparity between her own views on religion and those of her host family during a gap year in Morocco. She speaks of struggling to find the words – and the will – to express an opinion that is central to her own personal philosophy but in direct opposition to the world around her.
If you have a four to five minute-long story you would like to share, please email email@example.com to set up a recording time. Next month’s theme is Silence.
