About Sandra Whiting
“Mout Mek Fi Talk, Story Jump out”…is a Jamaican saying that lets us know we all have stories and they need to be shared. This fits Sandra to a T…she revels in the art of sharing a good story and from the time she learned how to talk, her mother says she has never “stopped talking”.
In Jamaican parlance she is a “chatterbox” but Sandra has found that when she tells people she is a storyteller, immediately stories begin to flow and being open to listening to the stories of others has helped her to hone her skills and reveal the vibrant stories that are at the heart of every person of every culture.
Stories of challenge, of adversity, of fear, of courage and confidence and of humour.
Stories of AND because it’s never Either Or but AND as we all have valid and valuable experiences to bring to the conversation.
“My story is one that says we all have value and something to share. Let’s Talk!!”
