Marle Mattingly is a communication studies major and senior at UNCW. She was a hawk tale player and part of the JustUs performance troupe in spring 2016. These were such great experiences that she wanted to continue in classes of the same nature. She is excited to now be an assistant director to the UNCW storytellers fall 2016! Marle has some background in performance and has always loved bringing different stories to life. She has come to realize that stories are some of the most important aspects of being human. We thrive when we are able to empathize with one another and our stories are a way of doing that. Marle hopes to continue performing after she graduates. She is excited to graduate in December 2016 and looks forward to what the future will bring.
