The Plus Me Project Storyteller

Meet Our Halo Award Winner, Cheryl Farrell
Cheryl Farrell was first introduced to PLUS ME Project over two years ago through PBS SoCal. She attended our storytelling trainings and signed up to speak in multiple classrooms at Edison Middle School on Giving Tuesday in 2019. Throughout this process, Cheryl found joy in not only sharing her story with students, but also having the opportunity to self-reflect on her own life journey. Cheryl realized she could resonate with and inspire students on a deep level, if she was willing to be vulnerable and authentic in the story she shared from her childhood. She quickly built strong rapport with the students she interacted with and the volunteers she shared the classroom experience with. It was an experience she described as unlike anything she had ever done before. READ MORE
