constructive narratives.

Constructive narratives

Stephen Covey once wrote, "We do not see the world as it is but as we are conditioned to be." I practiced as a professional journalist for a while before I went into communication. What I discovered while I was a journalist was that, objectivity does not exist. Our stories are always colored by how we see the world. And these stories have power to define what world others experience and perceive. And so it is valid to ask: what kind of world are we creating with our words?

When we write about problems and forget to take stock of all the innovative solutions already available in the world, we fail to provide a more holistic view. For my master's in development communication, I investigated the elements of constructive journalism and how we can apply it in communication work.

If you are looking to hire a communication professional who can write, and specifically not just about problems, but solutions, stay in touch!
