Marwa Ibrahim presents invocation at WOC Luncheon

We enjoyed listening to the opening invocation presented by Marwa Ibrahim from Hoesley 2011 cohort at the 25 annual Women of Color at Penn Day (WOCAP) Conference and Awards Luncheon. This event, organized by the African American Resource Center on campus, brought together a wonderful, large gathering from all over the Penn campus, including a sizable group from Penn Libraries.

Marwa lighted a candle and kicked off the lunch program with a short inspirational speech. She spoke beautifully about the need to look for what we have in common, rather than focusing on what divides us.
