What advice would you give to a new storyteller?

  • Even if they are scared to tell their story to not be because everyone wants to hear it.
  • Go for it! You will learn a lot about¬† cultures,stories and how to make them sound interesting.
  • What ever you do don’t be afraid of the audience (they don’t bite) and speak slow and loud.

  • Once you learned a story keep practicing.

  • Fear is not a real thing.
  • Talk loud and smile.
