Apr 5 | 6:45 PM | VPL Central Library | Free
Stories connect us to each other, our cultures, and the world. Come and hear from inspiring speakers reflecting our culturally diverse communities who will show how social media has helped them strengthen their identities, roots and friendships. How can Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other tools help you do the same? Ask the speakers in this interactive session. Afterwards, meet community leaders and social media activists at the after-party! Best part: Ajay's 67-year old father Ashok Puri will be speaking on how he traveled and made new friends in Mexico via couchsurfing.org - not just once but twice!
