Why did you enter this storytelling contest?
It has been a wish for me to take my storytelling ability very serious and thus came at the right time for me to be able to make my wish a reality. I always tell stories to all that are in my constituents.
What does storytelling mean to you?
Oh my gosh! Storytelling to me is everything because it is either you share your experiences with others so that they can get lessons, or be encouraged and in most cases is to inspire them. Irrespective of how sad the storyline maybe, someone always gets something out that they can use as a reference or a lesson. Therefore, storytelling is a way to help the world to become a better place through the power of words. Every time I share a story with my children, friends, neighbors or colleagues in my circle, I know that I am empowering someone to become better person somehow. Apart from this, storytelling helps me to grow as a person because I get encouraged when I see these many attentive ears eating from the palm of my hand. My storytelling has expanded to parties for little kids parties, where I wear funny to amuse them and start telling them stories that excite them and teach them at the same time, do not forget that in all of this, I create my own stories depending on the ages of children. This becomes a motivation for children and I also grow as I work hard on my content on daily basis. I am a Storyteller.
