Storytelling

His writing focusses on sharing the stories of the communities he comes from; the same communities that are typically pushed to the back pages. 

  • Virtual Panels and Webinars: Bryce is available to share his story and experiences as a Black, queer, transgender person navigating the world, education spaces, and the workplace via virtual panel or webinar. Bryce can speak on a variety of issues including (but not limited too) building for Black lives, White allyship/accomplices for Black lives, what educators and administrators can do to support marginalized students, and LGBTQ student leadership.

  • Story of Self Trainings:  Learn how to craft your past life experiences, identity, and passions into a cohesive story that can be used to empower yourself and others in your community. 

  • Creating frameworks that center the stories of Black, brown and indigenous communities, LGBTQ people, immigrants, system involved people, and other folks from marginalized backgrounds.

  • Curriculum Development: Curriculums are moral documents - they let students and young people know what and who matters. Bryce believes writing a strong, inclusive curriculum that is reflective of students' identities is storytelling of another name.
