It’s our mission to make each Graduate hotel the living room of its community, a place where people can come together, connect … and maybe share a story or two.
This past November, two inspiring women — singer-songwriter MILCK and comedian Cameron Esposito — gathered in Graduate Ann Arbor. They pulled up some chairs and spoke candidly about defining moments in their lives where their view of the world shifted forever.
These stories about finding your voice and finding your community are part of Hello Sunshine’s new “Story Scouts” series, which features speakers from the Hello Sunshine x Together Live tour (more about that below).
Here’s MILCK talking with her songwriting mentor, Suzan Koc:
You may recognize MILCK as the singer of “I Can’t Keep Quiet,” the song that became the unofficial anthem of the 2017 Women’s March after this arresting a cappella performance went viral on Facebook.
Episodes with Geena Rocero and Maysoon Zayid premiered in January, and next week’s episode features the very funny Esposito. Head over to YouTube to watch the full series.
About the Hello Sunshine x Together Live Tour
You know we love a good story. So when Hello Sunshine x Together Live invited us on tour, we jumped at the chance.
At their live events, incredible women from all walks of life take the stage to share real, raw stories. We met up with the crew for their stops in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the powerhouse line-up included Glennon Doyle, Abby Wambach, Jillian Mercado, Noor Tagouri, Luvvie Ajayi, Sophia Bush, Sabrina Jalees, Cam, Halima Aden, Priya Parker and our above-mentioned “Story Scouts” Cameron Esposito and MILCK.
The speakers had us laughing one minute and crying the next. The event’s creator, Jennifer Walsh, capped off the night with this wonderful statement: “Every single person has a story. And that story matters.” We couldn’t agree more.
Stay tuned on social to learn about the exciting collaborations we have planned for 2019.
