Jeremy Donovan's study of TED talks suggests you have three sources for stories:
- Lesson - give one lesson of one thing you have learned in your life
- Defining moment - share a time when you "came into your own" and you felt "really you"
- Overcoming weakness - tell how you overcame a challenge or weakness in your life
