I had no idea the journey I would be taking when my dear friend,
Diana Reyers, extended her hand to me in a restaurant in Qualicum
Beach in the Fall of 2016. What began as an idea, an event and a
sincere desire to build community, facilitate connection, and
encourage conversation has blown up into an entire movement.

Having contributed a story to Daring to Share Volume 1, I know first-hand the impact that being real, raw, and vulnerable can have on others. After having read the impactful stories in this edition, I am elated and excited for the beautiful individuals who bared their souls and "put it out there" in this edition.
I encourage you, dear reader, to put on your jammies, pour yourself a beverage, get a snack, get comfortable in your favourite spot, and immerse yourself in the journey these authors are inviting you to. Revel in their victories and overcome their setbacks. We are all part of the human experience. Join us. Scott De Freitas-Graff
Co-Author, Daring to Share, Volume OneDiana embraces a journey of stories from a unique group of individuals who are exposing themselves naked in this book with raw scenarios and experiences they have dealt with in their lives and how it has affected them mentally, physically, and emotionally. They are brave souls who have opened up and are sharing their private lives to readers. From sexual abuse to the perception of one's personality, unconditional love and to one's faith, are a few of the stories that brought me on an intense, emotional journey and in turn, enlightenment on their healing or adventure process.
