Presenter: Sonia Barazarte

Leaving it all for Freedom

Native of Venezuela, Sonia grew up in a happy family under democratic freedom in a beautiful land. Sonia will show us amazing photos of her beloved country.   She will teach us about Simon Boliver, respected as the Father of the Country and the inspiration behind their constitution. So what happened to Sonia’s world? In lite of the current economic and political situation, her picturesque country has become riddled with ongoing protest, killings and starvation. Once a successful lawyer in Venezuela, Sonia struggles to make ends meat as she learns a new language and tries to fit in to this new culture.

These free presentations are offered to you through a collaborative effort between the Mansfield Public Library and the Vernon Regional Adult Based Education program.
