I am a storyteller from Chicago’s Southside. The media has downgraded Chicago so much that people have built this misconception that Chicago is all violence. For that reason I tell the stories of inner city residents to portray how culturally rich Chicago is. Being a womyn who lives on the margins I am able to to identify on a personal level with the people I interview. Combining media and storytelling I will be able to provide a voice for those who might not otherwise get one. I am really passionate about what I do because is from the community to the community.
