In 2017, my grandmother gave me autobiographies written by my great grandparents. I didn’t know much about my family’s history but I was so fascinated by the stories they had written. In his own words, I read about how my great grandfather fought in WWII and started the first Women’s Army Corps. After the war, he was one of the founders to create the first university for American students living in Europe. Honestly, I had no idea he accomplished any of this and it got me thinking, “How can I help other people and families preserve their history for future generations to learn from?”
My Life, My Stories was born to encourage connections between people of all ages through creativity, storytelling, and the sharing of history.
