Jody Jackson-Becerra

TedxTalks

A gifted story-teller, Jody Jackson-Becerra weaves her magic using Fagogo, a traditional Pacific Island technique of story-telling.

With much laughter and imagination Jody demonstrates how you can connect with and teach valuable life lessons to children in a format that promotes true human interaction.

Jody left her large family and Samoan island life to pursue her dreams in education, attaining a Masters in Management Studies.

As a community engagement manager at the Auckland University of Technology, Jody believes that education is key to empowering communities, and by engaging and motivating children through storytelling each child has the opportunity to tell their story, however crazy it might be!

Here at Planet Maui we really enjoyed Jody’s story.
