Kit Robinson: "A Coat for My Daughter"

279 Robin Kitson.jpg

Robin Kitson has been telling stories that Polish Your Heart for over 20 yrs. She is known for her personal tall tales, civil rights and women’s historical stories, Cajun folktales, motivational stories, STEM, and international folktales. Although storytelling came later in Robin’s life, her stories started early. As a young child, she witnessed Ruby Bridges walking into a school where Robin was a student. As a young, single, poor, and uneducated mother, Robin tells about overcoming obstacles. She enrolled in a Community College and earned an AAS in Electronics and became the first female power plant electrician at Carolina Power and Light. She then went on to be the first female Electric Meter Tech. Eventually, Robin got her BS in Human Environmental Science to teach character education. The pay cut was too much, so she went back to Energy Engineering. After years of feeling like a square peg in a round hole, Robin found Storytelling. She was at peace, she was home. Robin’s life mission is to tell stories that educate, motivate, lift spirits, and sometimes just make people laugh.

A Coat for My Daughter is a short version of two stories Robin tells about pulling herself up by her bootstraps. Robin is a survivor, perseverance wins over.
