Christina Igaraividez Goes #TBT

Christina Igaraividez has a strong passion for storytelling and has performed across various stages in L.A., taught storytelling at corporate seminars, won multiple StorySlam competitions at the Moth and is a Moth Mainstage performer. Woah. That’s some pretty incredible credentials. This is why we’re so excited she’s teaching our newest storytelling class – Storytelling for the Stage and Beyond. Here we go all TBT with her!

Christina IgaraividezWhat’s the first thing you ever wrote and what’s your favorite line from that piece?
I wrote a book in the 4th grade which was about all the crazy things that dogs do to disrupt your life. It was a comedy. It was titled something like “The How and the What (Is He Doing’s) of Dogs”.

If you could go back in time and give yourself advice, what would you say?
Take an improv class. Now. Like as soon as possible. It changed my life and was my gateway drug to everything else I did after that, from a creative perspective. I only wish I had started sooner. (editor’s note – we totally agree)

What was your favorite book when you were a kid?
Goosebumps by R.L. Stine (if that is their real name) is literally what got me to read more often. I think we can all agree these were the best series of books ever made.
