Meet Amyjoy Myers, she/her
Amy Joy Myers is a Connecticut native and the youngest child of parents who migrated from the south to New York City and then to the hills of Litchfield County, Connecticut, making Amy at least three times removed from her origin story. She strives to understand her ancestral history, knowing that history is not in the past, but embodies us all and every present moment.
Through storytelling, Amy hopes to better know herself and others. She thanks Ubuntu Storytellers for these opportunities to create, explore, and share, and she is grateful to her father for introducing her to stories, spoken and written, when she was a girl. Amy lives in New Haven with her wife and their four-legged loved ones.
