Elizabeth Onusko and This I Believe

essayist Elizabeth OnuskoEach week, we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - this time from Elizabeth Onusko. She has boxes of mementos she’s collected since childhood that she takes with her every time she moves.   Instead of being a burden, Onusko believes her collection of ticket stubs, notes, receipts, play bills and letters help remind her of the people and events that have been important in her life. Originally from Cleveland, Onusko now lives in New York where she is a fundraiser for a not-for-profit organization and a poet.
