FINDING HER: Journeying into Womanhood
FINDING HER is a storytelling trilogy, written and spoken in the style of the fictional memoir, examining the life of a young girl coming of age and the women who nourished and struggled to bring her through. These stories represent the everyday Sheroes that may not receive the accolades, medals, awards of recognized warriors, but exemplify the strength, love, and courage embodied in every woman when need arises. In doing so, they find their greater purpose in those they serve and often save - including themselves.
TRILOGY: “Making Up”, “Daddy’s Girl”, “Dreams in the Rinse Cycle”
WRITTEN, DIRECTED, AND PERFORMED BY
Master Storyteller, Performing Artist, Writer, Communicator
