Hello, my name is Hakim Bellamy.

I make a living telling my story (in poetic verse) and helping others free the storyteller inside them. The only thing I love more than telling a good story, is hearing one! So, thank you for being a good sport and diving into the collaborative storytelling exercise and social experiment (read: "call and response" keynote) at the Head 2 Toe Conference earlier today! You will find your stories on the landing page (or home page) categorized by your assigned indicator of student wellness. Just click on the image and read (and share) your story!

I hope this blog inspires you to continue to cast stories as spells that will materialize new places and possible futures. Our education system needs all the creativity and imagination that it can get!
