Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing Series: Meet Writer Rachel Miyazaki

This week, our Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing live series continued with a brand-new storyteller: Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained writer Rachel Miyazaki! On Sunday, May 3, Rachel read her pensive and witty essay, “The Awakening,” which felt particularly timely. Afterwards, we caught up with Rachel on how she’s been since publication and hosted a live viewer Q&A.

What is the Story Sharing Series?

The Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing Series invites viewers to gather online to watch a Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained speaker or writer present their story live via Project Sleep’s Facebook page. Project Sleep is proud to offer our monthly series as a weekly event for the next few months. At a time in which many people need connection more than ever, this will increase opportunities for people around the world to engage with and support one another.

About Rising Voices of Narcolepsy:

To improve public understanding of narcolepsy, Project Sleep’s Rising Voices of Narcolepsy program trains people with narcolepsy to share their stories through public speaking and writing with local communities, healthcare providers, news outlets, blogs and beyond. Combining the power of real-life stories with expert communication strategies, our Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained speakers and writers are effectively raising awareness and reducing stigma for all those facing narcolepsy.
