I would describe myself ( at times)  as  an African-German American counsellor, workshop facilitator,  and communication arts  professional  living in Vancouver, BC.  My BFA is in Theatre Performance and my Masters is in Counselling.  I am interested in exploring mental health, women's issues, and empowerment.  

In this particular piece, I share  my translations of conversations with my Oma (German word for grandmother) about her experiences in World War 2.  I then offer my own reflections exploring the impact of these stories, heard/reheard, on my development. 

My Oma is 92 and lives in NC.
