*Tips on engaging and sparking empathy in your readers:

1. Make readers feel like they are living vicariously through you by including your personal travel stories and perspective.

2. Make readers feel connected to your topic by relating content to something all people care about or a universal human experience!

3. Make readers feel connected with a specific character(s) (local people) in your story by focusing on one or two characters that are related to the topic. You could include interviews and photographs, and recount stories about the characters.

Let the creativity flow! Enjoy!
