Who is My Story Studio for? Is it for me?

The Studio is for people from all walks of life who are ready to create the change they want to see in the world. As long as you have an idea, a dream, a desire inside of you that is waiting to come out (even if you don’t quite know what that is yet), My Story Studio and our community is here to assist you in the journey of creating your story as a catalyst for change.

What is the 5 min video?

This is the “end result” of your journey with the Studio. At the end of all your lessons, reflections and learning, you will create a video where you get to tell your story, in your own words! But don’t worry! You don’t need to know what your story is going to be right now — the story usually will emerge as you go through the Studio. And we are here to assist you in this process, so you are never alone 🙂

Why storymaking?

According to research, and in our own experience, we have found that storymaking is a powerful tool that helps us bridge the gap between where we are, and where we want to be. Through storymaking, we are creating and remaking our story while simultaneously creating and ‘remaking’ ourselves. This can bring us a deeper meaning about who we are and how we got to where we are today. This is what makes story making so transformative: the journey you take to get to telling your story is the journey that creates the most change in you.

This sounds great, but I still have questions!

We are always here to talk if you are interested in knowing more about the Studio! Email us and we will answer any questions you have 🙂

Julia Ribeiro


I’ve spent 10 years in the sustainability sector and driving large, collective impact initiatives has been my passion. It lead me deeper into what is needed for us to be more ready for change. I became a purpose guide, trained also in trauma healing.

In our studios I bring my gifts of connecting people to their deeper intents, sharing their voices with the world and opening the ways for it to happen. I thrive in working together with adventurous people who are creating the desired futures we want to live in.

I’ve spent over 20 years leading, coaching and mentoring individuals and teams. This has been work in government on the safe movement of people and the transformation of public administration towards citizen centred services.

I continue this work as an international consultant in Vision Zero road safety. I’m also a father, a passionate rock climber and a wellbeing devotee following a near catastrophic mountain bike incident a few years back.
