i wanted to start a storytellers chapter at my school, and i was about to go tell my favourite teacher if she'd help but i chickened out, because i was scared of people making fun of the "broken" people D:
We're sorry to hear this. We had a lot of people worried about that same thing, but the beautiful thing about it is that we're all in this together. Many of the student organizers we now have thought they might be told no because of what TWLOHA is about, but they were met with understanding, compassion and excitement. It can be scary, but they might surprise you. If you hear no at first, we are more than happy to talk with your administration / advisor to provide more detailed information. People often say no to things they don't understand or are afraid of, but once they hear the bigger picture become accepting and understanding.
