 The Storytellers / Trainers:

Jessy Goh - Jessie has been a primary school teacher for 40 years and her pupils remember her best for the stories she told, the poems and songs she taught and the drama games she played with them.  After her retirement, she took up Speech and Drama and was awarded Gold Medal (with Honours) from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) in the Speaking of Verse and Prose.  



Chuah Ai Lin - Ai Lin is a professional Storyteller, Guide (Nature, Culture, Heritage) and Educator. Her credo:   "A story that touches your heart, changes you. I just tell the stories, and get out of the way.



Panna Kantilal - Panna, an ex-librarian, started her storytelling journey more than 19 years ago where she discovered the power of stories to impact the heart and the mind. Having gone through a personal transformation, she believes that stories play an integral part in everyone's life.


Dolly 1

Dolly Leow - Dolly grew up listening to both her mother and grandmother telling stories of their youth, their childhood and Chinese folktales. Their stories were a treasure trove to her; she found herself passing them on to her daughters and students, and thus Dolly the storyteller was born. Dolly is now a professional storyteller and a Founding Professional Member of the Storytelling Association (Singapore). Whilst she enjoys telling stories to people of all ages, she has a particular passion for telling stories to children.
