Creating Ripples ... Making Waves
Storytelling Concert About Transformation:
MELODIE FRANKLIN, M. S.
I was born here in Baton Rouge, but at the age of five moved with my mother and stepfather to Kenner, LA where I remained until Hurricane Katrina rudely interrupted my stay. I have a beautiful ten year old daughter, Alia and an extremely supportive roommate Dorinda. I am currently participating in a voluntary internship with St. James Episcopal Day School here in Baton Rouge and loving every minute. The kids give me lots and lots to talk about and have taught me many things that I love to share.
M.S. Candidate in Library and Information
Labeled the perpetual storyteller by my
friends, I enjoy relaying information through story. From the
minor events of the day to pertinent information to a class of
learners I prefer to spin a yarn in hopes of having the
information “stick.” I am currently enrolled in Advanced
Storytelling at University of North Texas with Dr. Elizabeth
Figa and was privileged enough to have taken my first
storytelling course with her last semester.
