• Step #1: Get on the list (and invite a +1)
◦ Sign-up for a one-hour facilitation. This is where Dear World will hear your story and take your portrait. These workshops will take place on April 11th at 10:00am-11:00am and 1:30pm-2:30pm in the Johnson Center, Dewberry Hall, followed by the photo shoot. The facilitations are exciting and memorable events. Feel free to invite others who you think would be interested in attending. Send them this link and make sure they also sign up as soon as possible (space is limited).
• Step #2: Free Your Mind
◦ Come to your facilitation time on-time and with an open mind. Dear World’s immersive storytelling process will guide you to select a story only you can tell and connect with other featured students, faculty, and staff. They'll take care of you, you just show up.
• Step #3: Get Social
