TEDxPhoenixville - Kristin Pedemonti - Release Your Inner Superhero

Once upon a time, in 2005, Kristin embarked on a journey and a new adventure. She sold her home and most of her possessions to live her dream as a full-time professional storyteller and to create/fund/facilitate a volunteer project, Literacy Outreach Belize, Central America. What began with one school expanded beyond her wildest expectations. Kristin traveled village to village and donated literacy programs for 33340 students and trained 800 teachers to use their own indigenous stories in the classroom. Her book, Building Bridge Between; Connecting Cultures, Classrooms and Communities, a collection of student and teacher stories from the workshops she conducted, will be published next year. The project has been invited to expand to Ghana, Kenya and India in 2013 where she will volunteer training teachers and librarians. Today Kristin travels the world connecting cultures and building bridges between people sharing joy and hope through storytelling. Kristin is the recipient of the National Storytelling Network 2011 International StoryBridge Oracle Award for her work bridging cultures through story. Kristin is also a finalist in the TED2013 talent search. Kristin enjoys sharing stories, Free Hugs, Bubbles on Expressways, and helping others release their Inner Superheroes. storytellerkp.com TEDxPhoenixville, the first TEDx event in the Philadelphia region, celebrates the creative, innovative and inspiring work happening right here and all around the world.
