This year's participants explored various topics, from "Issues of School Choice" to "Stereotypes of African-American Women." Other topics include "What Does it Take to Become a Hip-Hip Artist" and "Alcoholism in the Somali Community." These stories project the authentic voices of young females who declare, with their stories, that they too are part of our community.
