Nothing is impossible here because of YOU. The YOU who graces this site and reads the stories.
The heart and soul of this humble space is the people featured within the stories who I am ever so grateful for. Because of their openness and willingness to share their personal journey, connection happens. And if you really want to go deep, connection is what it's all about.
It's the essence of why we are here. I believe that life is about the people we meet and the things we create together.
So let's do that. Let's create some more.
I have helped social entrepreneurs, online businesses, non-government organisations, community networks and initiatives, health groups and learning institutions to tell their story, and in doing so, build a loyal community of supporters.

Leah is a passionate storyteller, a multi-skilled communications specialist and a devoted human rights activist. She writes to ignite meaningful connection, to arouse curiosity, to push boundaries, to live large, to speak up, to create change.
She is deeply fuelled by a desire to create ideas and build visions to make this world a better place. A place where we can each equally follow our dreams - regardless of the place we were born, our religious affiliations, our sexual identity, our access to education. Everything in fact to do with the status quo.
After studying the causes of conflict and division in society, Leah now uses storytelling to unite people, to create community and to open opportunities for collective action.
She uses her skills in writing to highlight the sensational good others are contributing to the world by staying true to their purpose despite all odds. It's not always an easy feat and has involved a great deal of self reflection, awareness and acceptance.
