Something important I learned during the speeches that I heard was that listening to stories are important. From stories, we can think about things from a newer perspective that we may never have thought before. For example, when I was listening to a speech about photography in the wild, questions about the effects of climate change were asked. When the speaker was answering the question, he was speaking in a tone that really made me feel more about climate change. That it’s a bigger deal than I thought it was. I also thought that the tone the story is told in could also play a major factor in how someone may feel about the story.
