“Right now not only as a nation, but as humans, we are divided. Whether it be the color of our skin or the things we believe in, it seems everyone has a problem with something.

But I believe, as people, we’re so much more than that. If we would just sit down with someone we have differences with and learn more about each other through the process of storytelling, the world would be a better place, one story at a time.”

–Ethan, N4 Student Ambassador, KY, US
