Q from massmouth: How did you hear about massmouth ?
Sara Pesce: I first heard about massmouth through the University’s internship office. And from my TA who interned for you last year. [Maddie Panella! -Editor]
Q from massmouth: What attracted you to our organization ( the fame and fortune, obviously!) but what else?
Sara Pesce: I had never before heard of storytelling as an art form, and was curious to explore more what it was like and what it consisted of. At school I am studying Expressive Therapy was motivated to intern at massmouth since it is an opportunity to learn about a different modality of expression. In the past, I have been involved in theater productions and the performing arts. I have a great interest in learning about other people’s experiences and bearing witness to the connection that can develop from people exposing parts of themselves that otherwise would have remained inside.
Q from massmouth: What has surprised about your work here?
Sara Pesce: Even though I have only been an intern for a few weeks, I have been surprised by the amount I am learning about social media and storytelling. Each week that I come in, I become more knowledgeable and am filled to the brim with new information.
Q from massmouth:You assisted in classroom lessons at StoriesLive®. How was that?
Sara Pesce: I thought the lessons were highly engaging and helped students grow and learn in a different way than traditionally taught. It helped the students understand each other better and develop a greater way of understanding themselves. I heard a lot of great stories and even got to share a story about the time that I broke my arm!
Q from massmouth: What are you looking forward to in your work here?
Sara Pesce: I am looking forward to opportunities working in the community with massmouth. I am excited to assist at Storyslams and become more involved in the storytelling community!
