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.
