The Living Library creates a safe space for dialogue and to increase our understanding of others’ perspectives and experiences including those affected by stigma and prejudice. The event features people with diverse backgrounds or unique life experiences sharing their stories with a small group of Listeners. Spending time with a Speaker enables Listeners to learn more deeply about the Speaker's experience of culture, spirituality, disability, identity, gender—whatever the case may be. 

Being a visible minority born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, I have always struggled with and questioned my personal roots. Are my roots from some unknown land or this place I know? I'd like to share my personal history and conflicts of identity in my youth and how it has shaped my growth into the confident and outspoken supporter I am now. My insecurities have been turned into motivations, for better and worse, and dictate many of my choices each day.
