Ep. 27 "I Get to Do Something With My Life" | Library Stories


Seventh grader Tahmin Zahid’s heart was broken from seeing her LGBT friends and peers being harassed and bullied every day. As a participant in NYPL’s Innovation Labs, an after-school program for middle and high schoolers who want to use technology to solve problems and change the world, Tahmin was inspired to create a blog for LGBT youth and allies. Learn more about how Tahmin is using technology to impact her community, and the sense of pride and purpose it brings her, in this week’s Library Story.
