Arizona Storytellers: Rachel Egboro
KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series.
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 on Oct. 20, 2014, at the Farm at South Mountain.
