What others say about us Fran Stoddard Multimedia Producer / Host Burlington, Vermont, USA Transcript My name is Fran Stoddard. I'm a Multimedia Producer / Host at Burlington, Vermont, in the USA. I was so impressed by Angeline's story. Not only is she a fabulous storyteller... Her helping people recognise how important story is, how that can be important to understanding one's own heritage, own country and where a country is going is what story is all about. And she's clearly a leader in this. We're so excited to have her here in the States. She gave a fabulous presentation. Thank you for sending her here and hopefully for sending her to other places to inspire others.

What others say about us Bridget Iverson Youth / Slam Coordinator Young Writers Project Burlington, Vermont, USA Transcript Hi. I'm Bridget Iverson, Youth and Slam Coordinator at Young Writers Project. I attended the International Digital Stories Conference and that's where I met Angeline Koh. I attended her panel presentation on her work in Singapore and through the course of the weekend we had a number of conversations. I was very impressed with her strong beliefs in the power of digital stories. I was impressed with her dedication and her persistence, her friendliness and the high quality of the stories that she produces. Angeline has a strong understanding of how digital stories can be used to make an impact and that made her stand out from the rest of the rest of the attendees at the conference. I work with youth to help inspire and teach them to make stories about their own experiences. Angeline's work made me realise the unique thing about digital stories aside from their flexibility is their scalability. A digital story can be seen by thousands of people and have an impact on all of them, an impact on the future. And that's what I want to accomplish at Young Writers Project. I want to help youth use their stories to change their world. Angeline is an inspiration and she's a force to be reckoned with. Her talent is getting stories out into the world where they can do something. And she's excellent at it.

International Consultant/Historian International Vice President, The Navigators (1976–2005) The Navigators, USA Transcript I had the opportunity last week to renew my friendship with Angeline Koh whom I've known for many years and admire her work. And the occasion was a digital storytelling workshop here at Glen Eyrie. Digital storytelling sounds a little even menacing but it's very simple. It's the telling of stories in a way that is appropriate for the digital age. And I learned that I didn't know about how valuable this technique is. And it makes sense to me because the Scriptures are full of stories. And God communicates with human beings by the telling of stories. And we want to pass on stories of creation, redemption, the work of the Kingdom of God and so what Angeline is doing, what she's training other to do I think is an excellent addition to the range of resources that we have in getting the gospel out and illustrating and telling of the work of the Navigators. So I'm an enthusiast and I think she has a tiger by the tail.
