Description (no more than 300 words)

In this interactive session, Dr. Kinga Varga-Dobai and Early Childhood Education majors will share their research on the origin of their names and what they learned about themselves as part of that research. Beyond a creative and powerful form of storytelling, the Name Story, is also a conversation-starter about such topics as culture, identity, heritage and family values. Please join us for a 50-minute discussion to learn about our name stories, and share you own.
