Teaches Legacy Video

Ronda Barrett is a producer and story facilitator who has helped families and organizations capture their stories for over 20 years. Ever since her efforts in the mid-90s to help pregnant HIV-positive women to document their stories for their children, Ronda has been focused on the stories of everyday people.

After working for years telling the organizational stories of her clients at a DC marketing firm, in 2003 she was inspired to return to individual and family stories. She hit the road, traveling to Syria to document the personal stories of Damascus residents, and returned to the states to tackle her own family history trove. She established Honor Your Story and has been helping people to document their stories ever since.

As featured in The Washington Post, she is part of an international effort to promote the benefits of capturing personal histories. She encourages everyone to determine the best approach to their life story and not delay actually doing it.
