Abstract (300 words maximum)

This personal narrative storytelling performance is based on my involvement in a weekend-long church-led service project in Panama City, Florida assisting those impacted by Hurricane Michael in 2018. The story explores the social dynamics present in the midst of a natural disaster, reflects on the layers of the storm’s impact, and unpacks the concept of “voluntourism,” all while demonstrating techniques of personal narrative performance. The goal of the project is to discover meaningful connections personal narrative helps establish by application.
