Sincere Storyteller

sincere storyteller

There’s something special about a person who can tell a story. It’s not just the content of the story that matters, but the way it’s told. A good storyteller has the ability to captivate an audience and make them feel like they’re part of the story. As a Sincere Storyteller, you make people laugh, cry, and feel all the emotions in between. When people listen to you tell a story, they get a sense of your personality and who you are as a person. You’re not just regurgitating facts, but sharing a part of yourself with the world–that’s your gift. And that’s what makes a good storyteller so special. You have the ability to connect with people on a deep level and leave a lasting impression.

Discover Your Purpose Area

“What’s Your Why?” is more than just a catchy phrase. It’s a question that can help to focus your attention on what really matters in life.

And for Belmont students, it’s a question that can guide them as they discern their vocation and career path. Students at Belmont explore the importance of developing purpose by keeping questions of God and faith at the heart of their decision-making process.

You can, too!

By anchoring your choices in something larger than yourself, you can find direction and meaning in your work, no matter what career you choose. By discovering your “why,” you’ll set yourself up for a lifetime of flourishing.

When you come to Belmont, you can take the What’s Your Why interdisciplinary course, where you have an opportunity to choose your own adventure, so to speak. During the course, you’ll discover what it means to be a Sincere Storyteller, Organizational Innovator, Thoughtful Investigator, Creative Visionary or Compassionate Guide!
