#About the event
Duration: 60 minutes
All of us have an important story to tell. This session will celebrate our differences, encouraging children to leave feeling proud of their individuality, and to think about the invisible struggles others may be facing. Leave feeling inspired to reach out, learn about others, and maybe even make a wonderful new friend.
