What I Gained Project


We all have stories of challenge.

How we tell these stories shapes who we are and how we behave in the world. It shapes the way we connect with others and how we view the world.


The What I Gained project harnesses the power of story.

It cultivates resilience, builds common humanity, and create more wisdom in communities.

We all have narratives of the difficulty we’ve faced—mental illness, physical ailments, heartbreaking loss, and childhood trauma among others. 

No one wishes for these inevitable life circumstances. However, we can reframe our challenges in order to unearth the unique strengths and qualities that they have given us. 

These reframed stories—or narratives of resilience—change the way we view ourselves, and provides us with wisdom we can share with others.
