Diversity: Don't Hide From It, Celebrate It!

Diversity is all around us -- in our schools, in our offices, and in our communities. Often, what sets us apart is what makes us great. By pooling together our diverse backgrounds and experiences, we increase our knowledge and find new solutions to the problems we all face as humans. Nguyen shares stories of how diversity has enriched the media and our lives.
