Green Card Youth Voices Fargo: Book Reading and Exhibit

May 18, 2017, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Join Green Card Youth Voices and Plains Art Museum to hear three student authors read their stories in Green Card Youth Voices Fargo. The Fargo youth exhibit will also be on view in the Museum. The three student authors who will share excerpts from their stories are:

  • Muhend Abakar (Sudan): “There are people around that want to help you. They’re gonna help if you ask. Nobody will help you if you don’t ask for it.”
  • Roshika Nepal (Nepal): “I remember that I cried when I left the refugee camp because I was leaving everything behind.”
  • Iraguha Yvette (Tanzania): “My hope is that people get to know our Motherland, Africa more as we are learning about their land.”

Free and open to the public.


Green Card Youth Voices Fargo is available in The Store.
