UNLV is excited to welcome authors Priya Vulchi & Winona Guo to this year’s CREATES event! Priya and Winona will share their experience of creating and writing “Tell Me Who You Are”, this year’s UNLV Common Read experience selection. The UNLV community looks forward to welcoming this incredible opportunity to hear their story in person!
Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi co-founded the organization CHOOSE in 10th grade to provide the tools we lack to talk about race and identity in America. They published a racial literacy textbook for educators called "The Classroom Index," which has been recognized and funded by Princeton University and is currently being used by educators in more than 30 states. Before attending Harvard and Princeton University (respectively), Winona and Priya traveled to all 50 states, collecting hundreds of powerful stories about race, culture, and intersectionality. They are the youngest residents in the TED Residency Program and spent their summer further analyzing their research before heading to college.
