Our Vision

To create a more conscious and thoughtful global societyby publishing personal stories from people around the world. Each of us has an individual story, our own personal narrative of events and experiences that shape our personalities, our opinions and biases, the way we dress and act, and the customs and traditions in which we take part. Stepping outside of our personal bubbles to explore different perspectives and engage in meaningful dialogue enriches our lives and cultivates a more conscious and thoughtful society.

What Exactly is the Youshare Project?

Forward Thinking

We’re breaking down barriers, shattering stigmas, and building more effective communities through storytelling. The Youshare Project represents the change we want to see in the world.

Love Based, Not Fear Based

We recognize that a world that continues to promote and live in fear is a world that will remain disconnected, apathetic, and fall short of our human potential.

A Global Community

We hail from around the globe, but come together because we crave personal growth, new perspectives, and connection with others.

A Safe Space

We embrace, encourage, and respect vulnerability—because we recognize that vulnerability is critical for human connection and progress.

    I greatly appreciate what you have undertaken here. I've enjoyed what I've read so far and look forward to reading more.

    I think this is an awesome platform for people to share difficult and private stories that altered their lives in profound and dramatic ways, that wouldn't be as easily voiced on other social media outlets. The potential for changing the world, one life at a time, is limitless! I encourage others to contribute to the conversations!

    Ashlee, I am excited about joining the conversation ~~ and responding to your invitation to share a bit of my story. A few comments here by way of introduction~~I have spent the last 7 years writing my first book: From The Heart Of An Abandoned Daughter: My Personal Journey Through Family Violence And Beyond, which is about to be published. The experience of writing my memoir has been life-changing~~for me and for my family. Thank you for providing this space. I look forward to sharing part of my story with you.

    Ashlee, I sent you an email a little while ago. I'd like to share information about YouShare on my blog. I thought I'd mention it here in case you see this note before you see the email!
