We at Tween Xstream understand the power of storytelling. That is what we do for a living, and we can see what impact it can have on children. Stories have the power to captivate one’s imagination and take you to a whole new world. Stories have the power to help you forget about your circumstances for just a moment. It can inspire and it can give hope. There is power in stories.

Think about it. If there were no stories, we wouldn’t have a Netflix today. Disney wouldn’t have been able to make iconic movies like the Lion King or Aladdin. Pixar wouldn’t have been able to tell stories like The Toy Story or The Incredibles. These stories have put smiles on kids’ faces for decades and will continue to do so for decades to come.

The world would be boring without stories.

And that is why we decided to create a competition for kids to tell their stories. To be creative and be granted an opportunity to captivate the imagination of other kids. We believe that we all have a story to tell, we just need a podium and an audience.

And that is something Tween Xstream can provide. We have the platform, and we have an audience.
