BHS Students Share Their Stories on WXXI’s Connections

Students on Connections

Brighton High School students Esma Okutan, Kate Liavanava, and Stivia Jorgji were on WXXI’s Connections with Megan Mack on Monday, Dec. 7 for a segment on the stories of young people who have come to Rochester as immigrants or refugees. A new book called "Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from Upstate New York High Schools" chronicles their journeys through a series of essays written by the students themselves.
