I have two sentences that I think use personification:

You find your voice by feeding your mind with your passions.


This apathetic culture that we live in is silencing our voices.

Am I correct about the use of personification here?

The tho sentences can well fit the description of personification.

Other personification examples.


Yes, because, words, feeding your mind and silencing, represents abstract concept , which is what personification is.
