Share your story – participate in a raffle!

Stories differentiate us humans from other animals. There were stories well before we had books. Through them we learn about ourselves and the world. As social beings, we are interested in our relationships with other people and our community. It feels good to know that someone else has experienced something similar and to hear how they have managed their way through their difficulties.

Do you carry a story? A story with which you could structure your own experiences, while giving others the joy of recognizing themselves or understanding different life situations better? At the moment, we are collecting stories for our communication in February and March.

In February, our communication concentrates especially on motivation. Has your motivation been lost? Where did it go? How did it affect your life? Did you find the spark again? From where?

In March, we focus our communication on issues of coping. Have you ever been close to exceeding the limit of what you are capable of or even exceeded it? How did you notice that you couldn’t cope as well as before? What did you do? Did you find support or help anywhere? Did you change your habits? What would you say today to the person you were when you ran out of energy?

Write to us either under your own name or under a pseudonym, and we will share your story this spring to the delight of other students. The stories are submitted via a form on Nyyti’s website (link). Among everyone who submitted a publication-friendly story no later than 15.2.2020, we raffle three pairs of cinema tickets to Finnkino or three gift cards of 25 euros to Ruohonjuuri. We will contact the winners the following week and they are free to choose which prize they wish to receive.
