Session One: Tell Your Story in Your Own Words
• Explore creative ways to harvest and share the gifts you carry within
• Explore crossing borders and rewrite notions of identity, friendship, family & success

Session Two: My Other Selves
• Use photos and personal objects as cues to access memories & lift up your voice
• Interrogate creative ways to express your political, ethnic & sexual self
