Language Connections participated in Will Smith‘s “Shine Your Light” project.
The project, fostering tolerance, was introduced by Will Smith at the Wiesenthal Center‘s National Tribute Dinner in Los Angeles 3 months ago. The international Jewish human rights organization Simon Wiesenthal Center has bestowed its highest honor, the 2009 Humanitarian award, on Hollywood mega-star Will Smith. The award was given for his commitment to education, cultural diversity, and social responsibility.
Will Smith had online video dialogues with children around the world . Language Connections’ young representative participated as well.
As part of the “Shine Your Light” project, Will Smith and the young international participants wrote a poem collaboratively.
Here, you can see a picture of part of the poem with Will Smith’s first lines followed by the other participants.
Language Connections‘ contribution is 4th in row.
More pictures will come soon
