Meet Storyteller Rose Finley

I first met Rose Finley on our Storytellers Abroad workshop in Nicaragua. Rose is such a joy to be around. While she is quiet she does love to laugh.

If Rose was not working on her project by herself she was listening. She is a person of few words. You can see her listening with not just her ears but her eyes.

Whenever I talked with Rose I always felt I had her full attention.

You can see during her interview how focused she was with the subject. Rose cares deeply about people and making them feel appreciated.

Rose is also very independent. I would have to seek her out and ask if I could help. If I didn’t ask I think she would have not wanted to bother me or the other teachers. She did however ask for help in translation from Spanish to English.
