Sacha McBain learned the power of storytelling as a child growing up in the Scottish highlands, where stories connected her community to their past, present, and future. As she grew, she continued to use storytelling to connect with herself and those around her. She particularly loves stories that highlight unspoken shared truths and show listeners they are not alone, even in their worst moments. She chose to share the adoption story of her dog, Penny, to bring joy and humor to the imperfect nature of adopting a rescue dog. She hopes others will relate to her story and be a little more forgiving when things don’t go as planned.
