Ogül: I met Ina during the online storytelling workshop given by Pınar Özütemiz. She told me a personal story from her childhood. The story touched my heart, because it was not only funny, but it was also about solidarity and overcoming your fears. I guess I will never forget that encounter.

Ina: I met Ogül in a Zoom Breakout Room. We had just a few minutes to each tell the other a story. It is fascinating how stories can connect two strangers on a very personal level in a virtual space.
