A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

"She opened my mind and heart".

by Amapola on June 13, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Today I received my evaluation for a course I taught in a Masters programme. The course is called "Intercultural Communication Management".

The comments resume to:

Fantastic. Passionate. Clear. Approachable. Helpful. Favourite course. Relevant. Enjoyment. Pleasure. Inspiring. But the most humbling and surprising comment was the last one on the list:

"She opened my mind and heart".

I've never felt this fulfilled in years. My hard work payed off my mission and I am grateful.
