Uplift, Understand, Upskill Young Pacific Islanders at Midland Library (event):
“This is a storytelling event created for youth to share a space not only to listen but to exchange stories, narratives, and experiences in hopes to uplift, understand, and upskill each other. Our mission is to break the barriers of Pacific Islander youth by interchanging stories to help us realize our validity and get motivated to go above and beyond with schools and/or with our communities.
