Welcome to the first season of Unleash Your Story, a podcast for kids and young people where I interview experts across different industries to Uncover the secrets of storytelling and self expression to ultimately teach, empower and inspire you to Unleash your story.  My name is David Di Giorgio, your host. I'll be interviewing directors, producers, singers, dancers, musicians, teachers, authors, experts from the page to the stage to the screen. Each episode is a master class in one aspect of storytelling or self expression. Why am I doing this? I know that everyone has a story. And like I say in my book, Being UNapologetic, someone is waiting for you to share your story right now. How much longer are you going to make them wait? You can hear a little bit more about me and why this matters to me in the season 1 intro. Check it out.

"When I was a high school music teacher, I discovered something unexpected! Onesies were super comfortable to teach in and confetti launches work like magic to get an audience engaged. But seriously, for years I was trying to teach my students to become better musicians, but I also love to get to know kids. Turns out, the classes where I spent more time asking kids to share their stories and teaching them how to express themselves—those students became better musicians, faster. Storytelling and self expression where the keys not only to create better musicians but to unlock confidence, reduced social anxiety and to increase achievement and happiness. My name is David Di Giorgio, speaker, author, Gen Z Advocate, professional confetti launcher,  and now I'm on a mission to inspire you to Unleash Your Story!"

As you heard, I'm a former high school music teacher, theater producer, composer, yoga teacher, and world traveller. Today, I'm a speaker, GenZ Advocate, and I work with young people to become confident, powerful, unstoppable speakers and leaders. I even did a TED talk not so long ago where I reveal the big problem young people face today. It's what I call Comparanoia®. If I told you that by sharing your story, you could help someone else who might be struggling right now, would you? UNleash Your Story is a show all about overcoming your Comparanoia® so that you can share your story with the world and start making a difference for others. What if you sharing your story could help 10 people? 1000? 1,000,000? Would you do it? When you join the UNleash Your Story Movement and Challenge we will feature you on our platform and social media sites  and I might even feature you or have you come on a future episode. But it all starts right here when you listen to the show. We'll go on this journey together. My dream and the intention of this show is to give you access to the people you don't think you can get access to. If you have a request for someone you'd like me to interview or if you know someone who is a master storyteller, let me know. Reach out and make an introduction. With your help  as the show grows, I'd love to bring on people like Kalen Allen, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Steven Spielberg, Dolly Parton, RuPaul, Katy Perry, your favorite dancers, singers, actors, authors and directors and the people who work to bring the stories of some of the world's biggest names toe life. As the show grows, I'll show you how we can use the power of story to reach people you'd never think you'd get a chance to learn from while we UNlock the secrets of great storytelling in every form. So if you're someone who wants to learn how to share your story so that you can make a difference for others, be sure to subscribe to the show to never miss an episode. And remember, when you UNleash your story, you inspire others to feel seen, heard and celebrated, and who doesn't want more of that?
