After watching the video I was impressed by the big influence of a single story could be on individuals forming their perceptions A single story is making a judgment only based on limited information and in other words taking a part for the whole A single story can blind a person s mind with misunderstandings to a culture or a group of people inside that story It s dangerous for readers to be immersed by a single story because it makes them narrow view A single story always simply presents a people as only one thing over again and renders the reader to believe that is what they become A single story creates stereotype that one has to another A single story fails to express the authentic and comprehensive values of a culture instead constraining it with only one possibility I was moved and inspired by Chimamanda Adichie speech because it reminded me about my own experiences that aren t exactly same with hers but similar From my point of view the permeation of a single story to our society is the chief culprit of the emergence of discrimination There is one word I really like from Chimamanda Adichie s speech stories can break the dignity of a people but stories can also repair the broken dignity I am informed that stories can protect readers from being narrow thinkers of a single story and fiction is a type of genre telling stories Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize Fiction is composed of many stories and obviously demonstrate a people a culture or a country as an integration with different kinds of values which reminds readers a single story is too superficial to represent a community People can get to know each other better without simply bias by reading the many stories in the fiction instead of the single ones All in all people would realize that there is never a single story in any places by the help of reading fiction
