Story Slam 2015: ONE DAY.MANY VOICES! EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

Downtown Inglewood's Savoy Entertainment Center was buzzing with reunion-esque excitement and camaraderie on Thursday, January 15th, 2015 for Teach For America - Los Angeles Alumni Leadership & Involvement team's second Story Slam. Over 175 LA alumni, district leaders, and family and friends, packed the house once more for a memorable evening spotlighting 9 alumni who slammed stories from the classroom and beyond. Chaleese Norman (LA '02) was MC for the evening while Rudy Acosta (NYC '03), Lauren Grimaldi (LA '11), Jesse Melgares (LA '06), Ashley Terada (LA '07), Kimberly Figueroa (LA '12), William Heuisler (LA '03), Tawny Laskar (ATL '00), and Eric DeSobe (LA ’01) delivered performances that inspired us, brought us together, caused us to reflect, made us laugh, and gave us hope. This year we were also joined by Hoang Pham (LA ’11) and his Fast Break Crew during intermission to ensure we kept our energy levels high! Thank you all for making Story Slam 2015 unforgettable. See you in 2016!
