Do you identify as disabled and/or Deaf and/or with disability?
Why do you do what you do?
I grew up with traditional oral storytelling - my favourite memories are lying on a bed under a mosquito net while Mum held me in her arms firing my imagination as she related tales of magic & excitement from long ago! As soon as I could read & discovered libraries I was addicted. Later I fell in love with Shakespeare and learned about the art of theatre, drama & performance. I knew that I wanted to be part of this amazing world, loosing myself in it - not having to deal with the reality of my own childhood filled with abuse & domestic violence as well as other forms of oppression.
And it is ultimately this commitment to honour my creativity that saved my sanity and my life. I am a wordsmith, storyteller and a teacher.
