    How to be a storyteller with Ada Cheng with Keyanna, Christobel, Zamire

    How to be a storyteller with Ada Cheng with Keyanna, Christobel, Zamire

    In this episode, Keyanna, Christobel, and Zamire interviewed Chicago based storyteller and the host of Am I Man Enough? podcast, Ada Cheng.

    Before the COVID pandemic, we were so lucky to have Ada in the house for our interview and a workshop where she helped us learn how to tell stories from our personal lives.
    One thing we learned is what to do if you lack the courage to do something and need to find the determination in yourself.
    Ada’s motto is: make your life the best story you tell.
    Ada hosts live storytelling events like Pour One Out and Talk Stories. During the pandemic, these events are virtual. You can learn more at renegadeadacheng.com.
    On season 5 of Power Your Story, we are talking all about making podcasts. Storytelling is an important part of being a good host or guest.

Great young voices

I listened to the "Bullying" episode. This podcast is very well produced and the young people contributing their stories do an amazing job talking about a tough subject. Good job all around!
