In 2005, when Dwaynia Wilkerson started her teaching career at Alabama A&M University, she struggled to make a connection with her students during that first semester. Striking a balance between being the authority in the classroom and being someone they could trust was more difficult than she’d thought. But she struck gold when she realized the power of storytelling as a connection tool. After that first year, her students were eating out the palm or her hand (just kidding!) and she began sharing what she’d learned with others.

After resigning from teaching in 2016 to start her business Prose & Pens, a content writing service that specializes in writing professional & speaker biographies, Dwaynia saw that she’d need to apply those same techniques to not only craft her new story but to also best help clients connect with their audiences.
