    I can see how adding historical information can be interwoven to my personal timeline and make my story more detailed. For my story, I will go back and add the history of our nation, which impacted my parents reason to be in Europe when I was born. I’m sure it will give the story pizazz.

    In my memoir, I add historical content whenever it is appropriate . I believe it is useful for my future reader to know what happened to my country during the time I lived there. Thanks for the video, Patricia. It only reaffirmed to me that historical events are important in a story.
