Taking a Chance on SCOHP

Posted on Aug 7, 2015 in Featured, News | 0 comments

For the last year and a half, I had been dreaming of sitting across the table from someone whom I truly admired and capturing their story. Listening. Learning. Preserving. “Some people collect coins,” I would say to myself, “I collect stories.” As I prepared for the first interview, I wondered if I would live up to my expectations, if the risk that I was taking would pay off.
