Tell Your Story is the brainchild of Edyll and was formed in 2021 after a reflection on her time as a teenager wanting to be more involved in the arts, and yet could not afford it. She hopes this initiative will open the doors for other youth from refugee backgrounds to a career in the performing arts industry.
