“You are not alone… it get’s better.”
Perhaps the key finding over the two decades of conducting thousands of private interviews with kids is that, no matter what a child’s background, natural gifts, and experiences, nearly every child feels alone when faced with the challenges of growing up. When children have the opportunity to see these authentic stories, they realize they are not alone in their fears and insecurities, giving them encouragement and support in the challenges they face.
Authentic stories like this are only made possible however, if the privacy guarantee of the StoryQ Method is honored. Participants can not be expected to open up unless they know they are in a zero-judgment space with trust that their recorded interviews will never see the light of day without their permission. Since The 5000 Days Project gives the participant complete control of their footage at all times, these produced Ambassador films are only possible because, after years of benefiting from the process, the participants chose to share their stories in hopes of helping others.
