What’s Your Story? - Celebrating the release of four new stories

Some of the 'What’s Your Story?' characters

Some of the What’s Your Story? characters came together this week to celebrate the release of four new stories in the collection. They enjoyed featuring in the new books and are hoping others will enjoy reading a little about their lives. The author of the collection, Jennie Cole, said, “What I like about this series is that the stories are all so different, yet each story reminds us of how much we all have in common, they are full of hope and inspiration and all the characters show bravery and resilience in some way.”

The four new stories introduce Misra, Islam, Hassan and Muna. Misra comes from Ethiopia and loves cooking, as we follow her around her local supermarket and then see her cooking a traditional dish in her kitchen. Islam came to the UK from Sudan and prepares to have her second baby in the UK. Hassan came to the UK from Yemen and talks about how much he misses the landscape of his country. We see how he has developed a love of the English countryside as a way to connect him to his homeland. The fourth character, Muna, shares her love of reading and her ambition to have her own book on the bookshelves she frequently visits.

What’s Your Story? Series comprises 8 books and is an ideal starting point to encourage conversation and invite others to share their story.
