Why is it important people tell their stories?

John Paul Moffat

I think it's a good chance for people to tell their stories. Say they kept them in the past, just get them out and about. Like what you want, getting them noticed.

James Withers - MSYP

Basically I like people like me who stand up and speak out for themselves, rather than sit back and not say anything. I like to see people get out there and enjoy more, get out and do more in their communities and do further work with other organizations.

What can we learn?

John Paul Moffat

I think we can learn more about people's pasts. And if they just maybe go back and listen enough, to stories and that, they might find out things.

James Withers - MSYP

Basically the stories that I've been telling just now, these are the types of stories that people right here would like to say, "Wow! That's a great thing you've done." That what this sort of thing. I like for people in this sort of environment to get more involved and more active, in such a way that you can interact with politicians and make everything better for our lives and people in general.

Final thoughs

James Withers - MSYP

Yeah, it's been a great day. Basically, I just enjoyed it so much. I love the environment, I love the people, and this is what I like to do.

John Paul Moffat

I think it's been a great opportunity for people in the voice team to talk to other people mingle and have the chance to talk to different organizations. So I think it's been great.
