Paul Sanchez, Will Freeney, and Nohemi Samudio Gamis

Three students from the College of Arts Humanities—Nohemi Samudio Gamis, Will Freeney, and Paul Sanchez—were awarded fellowships as part of Yonsei Memory Project’s “Storytelling for Change” program. The program trains new and experienced writers, artists, activists, organizers, students, and local community members in the power of crafting detailed, heart-moving, and inspiring personal stories that touch upon themes of civil injustice and civil liberties. Founded by poet and English assistant professor, Brynn Saito and artist and farmer Nikiko Masumoto, Yonsei Memory Project (YMP) utilizes arts and storytelling to generate dialogue connecting the WWII incarceration of the Japanese American community with current struggles for justice.
