But here’s a quick refresher:
StorySpace @ Columbia is a new storytelling project that presents personal and inspiring stories from students across Columbia.
Today, we wrap up the theme of identity with stories about perseverance, confronting challenges, and finding inspiration in unusual places.
Advisory: We want to warn our listeners that some of today’s content deals with sensitive topics.
