This post is a call out for contributors for LUV. I originally started the project with me asking women via invitation if they would be kind enough to share some of their story with me. I sent out fourteen invites. The four women that did reply and that I have interviewed were amazing and generous with their stories and their time. I want more. I want willing participants who choose to share, I will only interview women that contact me. What I have observed in trying to interview women for this project is that they fail to appreciate their experiences, and the learning that comes from all they have lived. There will always be someone that gains from the sharing of any experience or story. During the interviews that I arranged, I loved seeing the way the women chat and laugh and sometimes cry over their own story, the way they glow and have ah ha moments from their own life experiences. I love all of these women for sharing their voice.
I can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org or private message. The following list is only a suggested list, to start conversation and ideas. If you or anyone you know would like to share please email email@example.com or private message me. Interviews and stories shared can also be anonymous.
