Take a look at what people in the community have to say about the Stonewall Columbus Speakers Bureau!
The speaker series made me realize I don’t know half as much as I think I do.”
This class has been a humbling experience. The speaker series forces you to open your mind and be respectful towards the opinions of other people. By doing this we learn life skills like how to be tolerant, respectful and objective. I began to realize through the second quarter that my opinion is not the only one that matters. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.”
Because of the speakers that were presented to me during the speaker series, I began to see through my own lens. Stepping out from behind the one that was passed down to me and that has truthfully, clouded my outside thinking and my ability to form my own opinions.”
The speaker series had a significant impact on not only my political outlook, but my life as a whole. It got me to start asking myself the important questions and allowed me to start seeing the world through a different lens, one I was creating myself and intend to keep developing.”
The speaker series became a conversation starter with my parents. I don’t think I have talked to them so much since 4th grade. Our conversations are different now, we share ideas and opinions, they treat me like an adult. I think I like that.”
