Carrie Sue Ayvar, an award winning, Arabic surnamed, Eastern European Jewish woman from Pittsburgh, PA tells stories that flow effortlessly between Spanish and English. As a storyteller, speaker, Teaching Artist and Chautauqua Scholar, she loves to connect people, languages and cultures via shared stories. Believing, as her grandfather taught her, that “If you don’t know the trees, you may be lost in the forest, but if you don’t know the stories, you may be lost in life”, she guides her listeners through cross-cultural experiences in her performances at venues large and small throughout the U.S. and Mexico.
