Over the past ten weeks I've had the honor of working with some truly inspiring students who have immigrated to Portland from SE Asia, the Middle East, East Africa, West Africa, Eastern Europe, Mexico, and Central America. Next Wednesday, March 29, they'll be sharing from the interviews they've done of their parents and their photographs illustrating the rich range of cultures they are living out.
The event is 10:00 a.m. at the Community Center behind St. Andrew at NE Alberta and 7th in Portland. Admission is free.
Other students will read from their letters and letters from Ghana on the theme of adversity, stories of overcoming poverty, loss of parents, and abuse, among other challenges.
So please forward this to anyone who might be interested in learning from and supporting diverse, determined, and resilient young people.
