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 (Management and Sustainability). 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!
