KJZZ is partnering with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers in Phoenix share their stories at live events in town. Some of the stories are about living here, some are not.

Rachel Egboro’s dad grew up in Nigeria as an orphan. But he was influenced by his pagan uncles and by the Christian priests at his boarding school.

So when he moved to Tempe to start a family, parenting was something he taught himself how to do by book.

Egboro still sees her dad all the time and gives him a hug when they meet.

You can hear more stories like this at our next night of live storytelling Oct. 20 at the Farm at South Mountain. Or check out upcoming nights and learn how to get involved by telling your own story, and see photos and a wrap-up of the event at
