Librarian-Storyteller Ann Grace Bansig shares her answers to my questions before
we had our storytelling session in Sambat Elementary School with Sambat
1. What motivated me to volunteer?
is my passion. It was intensified during my college days where I was a
member of a socio-civic organization that visit institutions. Now, this
passion is being sustained by the many volunteering opportunities in La Salle through our Social Action Office, Book mobile project and other personal endeavors. So, in short, its within me.
2. What is my personal goal as a storyteller?
personal goal is to foster love for reading and develop life-long
readers. It is my advocacy now to spread awareness about the many
benefits of storytelling to children.
is my volunteer-storyteller experience prior to this activity?
have a lot of storytelling experiences prior to this activity. I
usually do storytelling whenever we do Bookmobile project. I also
volunteered in ATD Fourth World Philippines in the previous summers. And
being a Reading major, storyelling is very essential as we advocate for
a literature-based reading program.
are my expectations from this experience?
I don't really expect much but I do hope that the students that we
catered during the small group storytelling session realized how reading
can make a difference to their lives.
