Experience based stories Having been grown and spent many years in a deep rural villages, in an area where you would hardly see a vehicle. I can still remember, I was amongst those who where scared of. All we were familiar with was helicopter, we use to stare and wave at them. Such experiences and myths, made me change and develop ways of thinking and do things differently. I strongly believe if it wasn't for that I wouldn't have had faith and chose the career I have chosen (architecture). I remember when i was doing grade 11, having had this dream of being the person who designs, in fact who draw houses not knowing that person is an architect. Here I come, my first visit in the city Cape Town seeing tall buildings, lots of high ways. Up to so far the journey still continues, up until I become a first architect from my village...

Digital storytelling at Education 35. So yes, if you get exposed to another persons culture, surely you will respect that culture eventually and you will learn about that person and you see that person with more respect and in a better light. Sharing and respect Everybody has their own story to tell. So digital story allows you to tell your specific story and share it amongst everybody in your classroom. 36. When my story was played along with everyones story, I could not help but get emotional, for the first time in four years I cried and felt very proud and less ashamed of my backgroundand another thing that made me feel very proud was when some colleagues of mine were touched and inspired by my story. I will never forget that Wednesday, because I got to know my fellow students more, they got to know me more Human connection 37.
