Description

Student Equity invites you to hear Alicia Cass, founder of the Metamorphosis Experience, share her story of transformation from being in the foster care system, a high school drop-out, homeless, teenage mother, and gang member, to Long Beach City College student, USC graduate, and author of Metamorphosis: The Butterfly Experience. She will speak about how she is using that experience to help women, girls, and youth in the South Los Angeles/Pasadena area who have been exposed to or who are at risk of exposure to violence-related trauma stemming from gangs, and sexual, physical, and domestic abuse.

Attendees will receive a free copy of Alicia's book, Metamorphosis: The Butterfly Experience, and a book signing will take place directly following the talk.

Presentation: 2:00-3:00pm
