One of the most powerful applications of the skill of sketching out ideas is that of sharing stories.
About a year ago I had the opportunity to chat with a high school publications classroom – at my alma mater, in fact – to share my journey since graduating 10 years prior.
In those 10 years I took a meandering path that eventually lead me to this work of graphic recording and sketchnoting.
It was fun to share that path with students, with two goals in mind: sharing (and demonstrating) what visual thinking is all about and broadening their perspective regarding viable career options.
I hope that those two goals come through for you as well the next time you get to stand up in front of others and share something you care about.
