‘Words2Action’ Storytelling Symposium Is Nov. 5

Pasadena heads of school and principals were recently invited to nominate one student from their school community who exemplified leadership, empathy, perseverance, and the embodiment of what their individual school community stands for.
Ten Pasadena seniors from 10 different area schools were ultimately selected. These students participated in a six-month storytelling workshop taught by TED Talk speaker Bryan Kett and adolescent development specialist and TED producer Heather Brunold.
“Through hands-on storytelling exercises and activities, each participant uncovered the core of their identity and then learned to hone their voice and craft their story through compelling narrative,” Brunold said. “Each student was challenged to use this story as the foundation of their college application essay.”
The 10 students will be on stage on Saturday morning, Nov. 5, to share their stories in front of a live audience. The audience will include Pasadena-area heads of school, faculty, student participants and their parents, and friends of our Words2Action Program.
“This unique, one-of-a-kind storytelling workshop has equipped these students with a powerful, personal narrative they can apply in the college application process and beyond,” Brunold said.
The event will be held at Cozy.Stylish.Chic, 89 West Dayton St., Pasadena. For further information, email Brunold at heather@words2action.org, or call (626) 620-6523.
