Angela Trahan

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents the story of Katrina survivor Angela Trahan, who took part in the first training session of the Surviving Katrina and Rita in Houston project on January 23, 2006. During the session, the sixteen trainees paired off and shared storm stories. Each person told his or her story to a fellow survivor, then the two changed places as the listener to the first story became the teller of the second. Afterward, the whole group reconvened and each survivor summarized his or her partner’s story for all the others; the group then chose one person to be the project’s first interviewee. Angela Trahan was the person chosen for that role.
