Plaza Voices: Making It in America
Did you know that we have over 75 unique neighborhoods in Denver? We speak 145 different languages here! In our city, every immigrant has a story, and every community has a voice. The "How I Made It" program series broadcasts immigrant voices and sparks conversations between immigrants and native-born communities--about success and innovation, hard work and inspiration, challenges and opportunities. About making it here in America.
During the past year, libraries throughout Denver have hosted these new, interactive sessions, bringing together immigrant business owners, community partners, and regular library customers, as part of our ongoing Plaza program. These "How I Made It" events have included panel discussions, business showcases, and networking activities, all designed to bring people together, start lively discussions, and encourage burgeoning entrepreneurs.
Engaging with entrepreneurs like Fetien, owner of Konjo Catering, we come away excited, inspired, and, well, hungry!
Plaza is a meeting place where people from all over the world connect with information, make new friends, and enjoy new experiences, building Denver’s global community.
