We don't usually rerun stories that aired previously as part of complete shows, but we're making an exception for Vene Aguirre, who took the stage at the May 2018 "Fake" show to talk about her struggles with pretending to be like everyone else, and her discovery of why she wasn't. From Vene's Odyssey bio:
Veneranda Aguirre debuted her spoken words talents at the 1983 Golfistas golf tournament with a poem about her fish Fred. She has since spoken to crowds from Tucson to the United Nations. Vene is a writer and attorney (inactive). When not writing, she can be found making lipsync videos for Instagram. She currently lives in New York and blogs at www.venerandajade.com.
This story was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at Sea of Glass Center for the Arts in Tucson, AZ, on May 3rd, 2018, and was curated by Tracey Kurtzman. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit www.odysseystorytelling.com
