Eva Abram Storyteller
Storyteller and Actress Eva Abram grew up collecting rainwater for drinking, for cooking food for nutrients and for bathing. Water is essential for life and Eva believes the same is true of stories. She has named her company Rainwater Storytelling because of the nurturing gift stories provide to our deepest being. Rainwater is universal and Eva believes The Power of Storytelling is Universal. Stories stretch across the world and connect us with one another. We human beings have similar experiences and similar emotions. Stories show how much we alike we are, they act as bridges bringing us together. Eva enjoys performing stories, watching them work their magic.
Eva says, “I grew up collecting rainwater, now I collect stories to spread like rain.”
