CBC Daybreak invites us to share the project: October 10th, 2011

Loreen Pindera interviews Stephanie, Ayanda, and Liz about the book launch
and speaking tour.



Leontine Uwababyeyi is the only member of her family to escape the violence in Rwanda. Now in Montreal, she tells her story in classrooms giving local teenagers a concrete way to understand issues like cultural identity, migration and resilience.

She has been working with Concordia communication studies professor Liz Miller and a team of young refugees, students, educators, researchers and community organizers on Mapping Memories. This research/creation project helps young refugees articulate their experiences, primarily through digital media, and share them with their peers in Montreal.
