Liz’s Favorite Story

Liz Green, our Program Coordinator, is the next FPA staffer to share her favorite StorySlam story. She chose Janet Von Trapp's story that won the“Almost Famous” slam and took Janet all the way to the 2011 Summer Grand Slam where she was voted Audience Favorite and won Best Presentation! Janet's story taught us all that it doesn't matter who other people are, what matters is knowing who you are. Janet? Well, she's Dr. K's daughter. Watch the whole story below!
