Story Corps

Pat Colletti and George Barajas

8 1/2 year old George Barajas is a curious boy and is quite the inquisitor during his StoryCorps interview of his grandmother, Pat Colletti. Her life growing up on a farm was of particular interest to the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s “Kid Curator.”


When 8 1/2 year old George Barajas sat with his grandmother, Pat Colletti to do their StoryCorps interview, he was determined to ask all the questions. And he did. Like a young reporter, George came prepared with notes of what to ask and he peppered his grandmother with rapid fire questions. Young George was specifically interested in what his grandmother’s life was like when she was his age. Her description is detailed and quite visual and ideal for a young boy’s imagination. Their interview is sweet and loving and something they’ll both appreciate even more as time passes.

George is no stranger to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. He’s the Museum’s “Kid Curator” and works closely with the HMNS staff during special events.
