Six grade 5/CM2 Ras Beirut students shared their personal stories, all pieces of the “puzzle of life” Every speaker and performer was free to shine, to shine and mesmerize the audience. The onlookers responded with cheers, applause, words of appreciation, and even tears of joy!The hosts, Omar Atassi, Karim Beydoun, Saria Zakaria and Saria Rasamny made sure that each speaker was introduced properly.
