Welcome to our bi-weekly podcast where we aim to empower people to express themselves through speech! In each episode, we will seek to speak about ways to better verbalize ourselves and our stories. We will also have topical interview sessions with special guests and share select speaking tips, useful for the casual and competitive speaker.

I want you to know that you - yes you - have a voice. That what you have to say is worth hearing. That your thoughts, your opinions, your feelings and your views matter. Your voice mattered yesterday. Your voice matters today. And your voice matters tomorrow. Your voice is important. It deserves to be heard. Your stories deserve to be told. You and this whole speaking up, this whole writing thing is necessary. Whether life is incredible and amazing or whether you’re feeling really uncomfortable about the things going on around you right now, your voice matters. So you must find it. You must own it and you must use it. Well done @ainaissa for your work in helping others find their voice. And thank you for hearing my own journey finding my voice - from that angry activist on the streets demanding to be heard to helping others find their own voices now, through opening doors for climate action. Here’s to more stories of people rising above their personal mountains to be able to say the things they needed to say. To those who found courage when they were afraid. To those who speak up for others who cannot themselves. To others who fight to open doors so the rest of us can be heard.
