shares her answers to my questions before we had our storytelling session in Sambat Elementary School with Sambat Trust scholars.
What motivated me to volunteer?
I don't get to do library/literacy related volunteering anymore so i'd love to do it again. And it's different when you get to share what you can do without getting paid for it or whatever, feels fulfilling.
What is my personal goal as a storyteller?
There's nothing like being able to make kids happy after a storytelling, to make them enjoy a good story, to be able to provoke thoughts, and to be able to look at things from their perspective as every child is different in how his thinking is molded by his experiences at home, in the community, etc.
What is my volunteer-storyteller experience prior to this activity?
None. Only read-aloud storytelling at work to kids from preschool to the second grade.
What are my expectations from this experience?
Every experience is unique, so i'd just love to be surprised and learn something new.
