Abstract (300 words maximum)

This project uses personal narrative storytelling performance as a medium of self reflection and exploration. After doing some research on storytelling itself, I have created my own personal narrative detailing a moment of realization alongside a new life being brought into the world. The narrative explores perfectionism and the difficulty that overachievers have arriving at self-acceptance. These topics are viewed through the lens of familial relationships during a big family event, the birth of my nephew. The final piece is a presentation, beginning with an introduction based on my research and concluding with the storytelling performance itself.
